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
Of course. Without two you swing, and it can be pretty extreme. OP wanted to avoid movement.

comment How do you stop blood-flow from a leech bite?
sean - neither of your solutions actually work. You need the combination of pressure and a material which doesn't let the blood leak through.

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

comment Rules for Carrying flammable subtances in UK
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.
