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 How to anchor a raft on a river
For seagoing yachts, anchors should weigh over 1lb per foot of deck length. I'm not sure how applicable that would be for rafts, sorry

Additionally, despite the myths, it is more often not-rainy than rainy. Check to see if all areas allow fires - some don't due to risk of wildfire. Yes, even in the UK.

comment Are there any phobia-friendly ways to deal with flies?
Yeah - the hat for me is essential when we go camping on the west coast. Mine is a little bit more fashionable than that one (not much) but there are many types.

comment Activities at the campsite
Definitely a +1 for "Run around as fast as you can" - this game is its own reward, although as the kids get bigger it needs to include "and jump over/off/through dangerously high/sharp things"

comment Ways of attaching a DSLR on a ACT Trail 32 backpack
My recommendation would always be to have it in your pack, but if you want it on the outside this is pretty solid. I wouldn't worry about not being able to see it.
