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

Broken Ankle by Gordon H[_3_]
Placed my foot in a shallow depression on the moors above Hayfield, after 6 miles of an 8 mile walk, and went down like a log. There was a horrible crack, heard by my mate 2/3 paces ahead. After the shock wore off it was obvious I couldn't continue. I used Pete's walking pole to hobble to a...

Scottish mountains - how on earth can anyone pronounce them? by Peewiglet
I've been poring over the map of Scotland, but no sooner to I begin to develop an idea of where I might like to walk than I forget where it was, because I can't begin to pronounce about 95% of the place names. Is it all a malignant plot to keep nesh Southerners out? How on earth does anyone ever...

Pay for your rescue. by [email protected]
A letter that might be of interest: Dear Sir Pay for Rescue Now that Search and Rescue services are to be privatised perhaps it is an opportune time to consider charging those who indulge in risk taking recreational activities such as sailing and hill-walking for the cost of their rescues. I...

Canon EOS 300D by Paul Saunders
I had a look and a feel of this camera in Jessops today, and I must say that it's got a really good solid feel to it, but at the same time is surprisingly light. I didn't weight it, but it seemed to be no heavier (or bulkier) than my G3 with the wide angle converter (the converter does add a lot...

Time to Pay! by [email protected]
Time to Pay! I am interested to see that there has been a suggeation that walkers should pay for their use of the West Highlland Way but I would suggest that £1 a day is well below the market value. Walkers should accept that almost all other sports and pastimes have to pay for the upkeep of...

Speaking of Notebooks... by Paul Saunders
For those who haven't been keeping up with these things, a notebook is a new breed of portable computer which is a cross between a Laptop and a Netbook. Netbooks are cool in that they are very small and light (around 1.2kg) with good battery life, but are underpowered and have very small screens...

Sunsets by AndyP
Is it possible to tell in advance when good sunsets or sunrises are going to occur? Clouds were a nice tinge of pink last night but haven't seen any really good ones for a while.
