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 What can I do to keep my hands warm while using touchscreens in the winter?
I have tested touchscreen gloves down to -20C and had no problems. Actually my phone started having some problems - the screen isn't happy at that temp.

comment Should you pop a blister?
The base of the nail- the actual growing bed. I had to get it completely cauterised to prevent the nail growing ever again.
