I'm an avid programmer, enjoy creating things, enjoy a good puzzle and especially enjoy foxing people with a Java puzzle now and again!

Outside of my coding life, I have a number of other interests, including outdoors activities such as hiking / geocaching / letterboxing. I'm also fond of music - I enjoy listening to it as well as playing the piano and violin.

comment Where in Europe is wild camping permitted?
It's not the same thing unfortunately - freedom to roam doesn't necessarily imply freedom to wild camp. In the UK for instance freedom to roam applies over most countryside, but there are very few areas where wild camping is allowed.

What sort of rope are we talking about - rope to be used for holding up a bear bag / tarp, rope for climbing, etc.?

comment How can you navigate without a compass or GPS
+1 - I agree with all of those points. But if you do have a realistic method of finding where north is, that can never be a bad thing.

comment Are there any cheap 1:25K electronic maps for the UK or Europe?
@ChrisBallard I agree. The concencus here (outdoors.stackexchange.com/questions/64/…) was that this question was ok, so respecting that I think it should be reopened unless someone comes up with a good reason otherwise.
