Walking from Exmouth to Weymouth in 3 days - too much? by Phil Bradby
kieran.scott2 wrote: In case anyone else is thinking of attempting this, I have to say this itinerary was VERY demanding and I wouldn't recommend covering this route in such a short space of time. Stretch it out to at least 5 days. I am a keen hiker, having completed a 23-day trek in...

Walking poles by [email protected]
My Leki Alto walking poles have corroded fairly badly, though I am not quite sure why, but no matter. Anyway, I need some more, but Leki's product range seems to have developed cancerous gimmickry and their Web pages and brochure are nothing less than obscene. I need an ordinary grip (not...

Exposed walking or scrambling routes in Brecon Beacons ? by RustyCrampon
