[OT] Stranded Woman Saved By GPS by Fran
Well OK, perhaps the heading's a little on the dramatic side, and I must confess here and now that this isn't a walking- related topic; however I have finally used my 'yellow peril' eTrex as a means of escape from inhospitable wilderness. Sort of. Our intrepid heroine (i.e. yours truly, but...

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...

Lighting MSR Pocket Rocket with firesteel by [email protected]
Went to Blacks today and bought an MSR Pocket Rocket and a Light My Fire firesteel. Went home, and in the garden, promptly tried to light it. I could easily light the stove with a cigarette lighter, but could not repeatedly light with the firesteel. I could get some large sparks off the steel, and...

Using GPS instead of maps by Nick Maclaren[_4_]
Does anyone have experience of wide-area touring and navigation using a GPS device? I have an Etrex 20 and an OpenStreetMap mapping (talkytoaster), as an experiment, and found it hopelessly painful to use, mainly because of lack of resolution and secondarily lack of oomph (especially noticeable...

Traps and snares by Martin Richardson
Is it just me, or is there an increase in the number of snares and traps left for animals? On a recent walk on a property belonging to the National Trust for Scotland I set off from a carpark where there a number of signs explaining how the NTS was trying to 'naturalise' the land and...

Which? Magazine: April 2006: Walking shoes and boots by Allan Gould
Intro: We've chosen Best Buys for low-cut shoes, mid-cut shoes and three-season walking boots. We've included three boots to see how the lower-cut, lighter shoes compare with these previous Best Buys. As well as our tough lab tests, the shoes and boots were put through their paces by two experts,...

Definition of a Mountain by toad
I can't find a good definition of a mountain anywhere. Probably because there isn't one. According to URW what makes a Hill a mountain? Is it 2000ft, 1000ft? I've heard 500m as a definition. Up to now AFAIC if it *feels* like a mountain then it is a mountain, is there a better perspective?

Calling all wlaking Chiropracters, Osteopaths, Physiotherapists and Doctors by Trevor
Possibly the most important (to me), posting I've ever made. A few years ago (2/3) I was happily walking 20-30 miles per day in mountainous terrain (I am 54). I have had a lower back problem since 30 when there was a sharp click which laid me out on the floor. Now I can only manage 8 miles (I...

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. ...

Protection of the public I was appalled to learn that the National Trust's "full and exhaustive investigation" denied even contributory responsibility for the death of Zoe Skea, who fell into a gorge at the Quoich Water beauty spot, by their conclusion that "no man-made features or structures...
