Weird peat by Nick Maclaren[_3_]
Normally, I am quite happy to camp on soggy ground in the Highlands, and find that the peat exudes water but is otherwise clean. However, for the first time, I encountered some that squidged into something the colour and texture of semi-liquid cow dung, and much the same smell. It was NOT deer...

Swaledale Waterfalls by Volker Gringmuth[_2_]
David B wrote: We'll definitely be doing the Keld-Muker walk, Swaledale is nice but the most impressive Keld-Reeth routh is along Wainwright’s Coast to Coast through the lead mines (Swinner Gill, Blakethwaite, North Hush). Is there anywhere that I may not know about?

Food for camping :-( by Nick Maclaren[_3_]
For the past few years, I have used Ainsley Harriott lentils and (quickish) rice, because they make a fairly good meal of close to 1,000 calories. But they are virtually impossible to get this year. Gallo risotto pronto is still around, but the packs are a bit stingy and it's a bit stodgy. And...

Rather OT Pubs by Broadback[_3_]
When walking we like to plan a pub stop about half way. Sadly more and more pubs are being closed, have restricted opening hours or turned into restaurants. Is there any application available, or other way of finding if pubs are still open?

Changing attitudes by Richard Smith
I'm trying to piece together several branches of the Rogers family of Bradford on Avon, Wilts in the 15th and 16th century. All have the same basic arms: /argent, a chevron between three stags sable/. Occasionally there are cadency marks (a crescent at Deritend, Warks; a crescent on a...

Custom boot insole fitting? by Peter Clinch
On 21/04/2015 21:08, Nick Maclaren wrote: Boots are, however, rather better at keeping mud, peat, heather, grass seeds and other such junk from getting inside your footwear. A fair point. However, the upsurge in fell/trail running in recent years means there are quite a few minimalist...

Is Walking...? by [email protected]
Is walking for walking's sake not a pointless waste of energy and of the planet's resources? Would walkers not be better putting that energy into some economic and environmental benefit? --- This email is free from viruses and malware because avast! Antivirus protection is...

Insignificant undulations by Nick Maclaren[_3_]
I tried testing my hill-climbing capacity today (which I want to know for configuring a recumbent tricycle!) up the nearest 'hill' (50 metres averaging 1:10). Unfortunately, it's not steep enough for me to change from a walking to a climbing gait, and using stairs has the problem that I can't test...

Time to pay? by [email protected]
Now that Bristow have taken over SAR the long time excuse that SAR provides training for military personnel is no longer applicable. Hill-walkers should now take out insurance to pay for helicopter rescue or pay for it themselves. I suggest £100 annual insurance or a minimum of £2500 per rescue. ...

Xmas by Roger Chapman[_3_]
Season's greeting to all who still read this news group. I don't think I am getting any news from this ng from my new news provider so I am sending this message on spec. So if this gets through it is also a goodbye to all I have met or corresponded with since I first signed up to this ng back...

Open Street Mapping by John B
I've been contributing a few local paths and trails to the Open Street Map project and am happy to do what I can to support it. While there are good apps that use OSM mapping on my (Android) phone, I haven't yet found software that will do an equivalent job on my Win7 PC/netbook. Garmin's...

If walkers don't damage paths................. by [email protected]
If walkers don't damage paths, why do they need fixing? And if privately owned paths need fixing why shouldn't the walkers pay for it? --- This email is free from viruses and malware because avast! Antivirus protection is active. http://www.avast.com

BT Usenet access by John B
It seems that BT is cutting access to Usenet as of early December. As a frequent lurker - but only occasional contributor - to this group, I just wondered if there were any alternatives other than Google Groups? John B

Newsgroup providers by Nick Maclaren[_3_]
In case anyone knows an answer, do any of them provide archives and a reasonable search mechanism? Other than Goggle Gropes, of course. Regards, Nick Maclaren.

cleaning trekky poles by John B
Over the years, I've tried different ways to clean trekky poles so that they don't seize up. None of them has seemed to stand the test of time and I wonder whether I'm missing something obvious. Last time I tried gunk with a long thin brush, but it seems that the insides of the tubes just keeps...
