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 Are fires in natural caves/overhangs safe?
It is also a high risk in low temperatures where thawing due to the heat can let water get deeper into rocks where it may freeze again, emerging cracks. Still not a huge risk but I wouldn't do it myself- fire just at the entrance works best.

I guess this does depend on what sleeping pads the OP is using...
