Walker, canoeist, sailer, glider pilot, rock climber and father of 3.

Middle son of a polar explorer, and grew up in the wilds of Orkney and the Falklands - so take after my father in outdoors pursuits.

Happy in the middle of mountains or forests in a tent :-)

comment What is scientific relation between body weight and backpack weight in mountain climbing?
+1 - I have some friends much lighter than me who are much fitter, and can therefore carry greater weight for longer. I have some who are strong, but not fit, so although they can carry heavy packs, they can't travel long distances with them.
