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 Will barefoot walking harden the skin and help prevent blisters when trekking in heavy shoes?

comment I'm a data geek and I want to buy a watch for running, what should I get?
Most of the Garmins graph your data on the watch realtime as well as being able to get some useful analysis online. There are also various offline options.
