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's the problem with electrolyte imbalance and how do I mitigate it?
On the eating something salty while drinking - yes, I sometimes take a small handful of salt to swallow with water, but most folks don't like the taste :-)

I hear ya @Russell - I liked camping light, but now have a tent that can sleep 12, and that I can park my car in... we only have 3 kids!

comment How to warm up your cold toes and fingers?
'A little screaming' - very true, and if your fingers/toes were close to frostbite this may be a lot of screaming...but this means it is essential you get them warmed up! +1
