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 rappel on an over-hanging cliff?
Commando rappelling is fun and exciting, in the same way bungee jumps are - I wouldn't expect anyone to do it for a descent, but for fun.

comment Has anyone tried making their own make-shift Hydrapack?
I think it could be a fun project and have upvoted you... but I still would not use one in real life:-)

Considering I can by one for less than a couple of cups of coffee I'd rather not rely for hydration on something that might break when I need it.

comment Is it really that unsafe to touch a stranger's wound?
Now that I don't know. Sorry. The US and UK are scary though, in the putting management of lawsuits and health & safety risks before rescuing or helping people. We even have examples of fire/police inactivity (through following policy blindly) allowing individuals to die.
