TR- 3 old men climb another by Bob Mannix
Not an interesting walk from the experienced walkers perspective but, as there has been some discussion about "Old Farts Pace" as a Naismith variant (and a complaint about the lack of TR's), I thought some empirical observations from true Old Farts might be of interest to the less junior among...

Hi, I help run http://www.walkhighlands.co.uk/, an ever growing website with over 200 free walking routes in the Scottish Highlands. We're slowly making all the routes available as GPX (and Quo) route downloads, which are all free to use. It would be of great help if anyone was willing to share...

Mail Welsh landmarks by Paul Saunders
Being "local" it's not so easy for me to tell, but what do visitors to Wales consider to be the main "landmarks". I mean natural landmarks, rather than man-made ones. I'd assume Snowdon, Cadair Idris, Tryfan and Pen y Fan. Perhaps also Threecliffs, Worms Head, maybe Cenarth Falls, Great Orme? ...

More Water/Drinking by Mark Thompson

Down Sleeping Bags and the Outdoor Show by Andy Howell
There is something rather annoying about having the Outdoor Show in Brum for the weekend, especially when on Wednesday I head out to Snowdonia for a week. The temptation to buy all kinds of things this weekend is - I suspect - going to be far too great. In general I want to reduce the weight in...
