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 :-)

The upside - e.coli and salmonella are in most things these days, and as long as you are healthy, you will be quite resistant. Didn't know that about US sushi.

I only know the UK side, and I'm pretty certain it works differently over here as the low pressure systems come towards us, but away from you.
