Rough formula for walk 'difficulty' by Terry Pinnell[_2_]
I'm planning next summer's walk with my wife of the SW Coastal path, from Westward Ho! to Trevenoe. I'm in the course of making estimates of mileage and gross ascent and descent (ft), both based on my fairly careful plotting of the path and using Google Earth's elevation profile. Average mileage...

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...

Alport Castles by Graham Seed[_2_]
Went over to Fairholmes and Ladybower on Sunday - what a day. 1st November and one of the best days of the year. Managed to get my lad over to Alport Castles on the chance that we might see a peregrine falcon. Probably the wrong time of year but what a view we had...

On my last legs or what? by Roger Chapman[_3_]
I have not been in the best of health over the last two years and for a time I was on medication that destroyed any urge to do just about anything that involved physical exertion. Having been totally inactive since June 2014 I was in pretty poor shape by spring this year and it was late May...

Biting insects by Nick Maclaren[_3_]
In the Highlands, something bites my shins, less so my thighs and rarely higher up, through thick socks. It is NOT ticks or midges, but I have never found out what it is. Any ideas? Regards, Nick Maclaren.

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...

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?
