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 How can I acclimatize to cold?
+1 for cold showers - you don't even notice after a while, it just becomes nice and refreshing!

comment What steps should I take if someone starts sinking?
@xpda Well, sometimes I do as well - but there's a line somewhere between someone getting a bit wet because the ground's a bit boggy and someone taking a step and without warning rapidly descending...

comment What should I look for if I want to buy a winter-proofed tent?
What's your current tent? This may help if we're deciding if it's sensible to get a new one!

comment I found a Deer Tick on my friend and removed it, what should I do now?
It's a good idea to keep the tick so it can be examined on your return to see if it carried any such infections.

comment How to reduce the annoying sound of falling raindrops on a tent?
Well, if I felt there was any danger with not hearing my surroundings then the ear plugs would go out the window!

comment How to reduce the annoying sound of falling raindrops on a tent?
It depends where I am - if I'm in the middle of a campsite, I'm less inclined to listen to my surroundings than in the middle of Dartmoor for instance ;)

@TimothyStrimple Hah, love it! Well, unpleasant as that might be I guess it's not quite as critical ;)

@HorusKol Good point - an oversight on my behalf. I've updated the answer accordingly.
