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 Taking care of hiking backpack
My usual tactic if the whole zip goes is just to strip out the entire zip fabric and replace. You might need a sewing machine but you should be able to do it with just a strong needle and thread.

comment How can I relieve knee muscle contractions?
This may not be advisable (hence it being a comment rather than an answer) but what I do is punch the offending muscles until they release, and try and increase my salt intake, as for me muscle cramps seem to be directly linked to a lack of salt.
