Insignificant undulations by Nick Maclaren[_3_]
I tried testing my hill-climbing capacity today (which I want to know for configuring a recumbent tricycle!) up the nearest 'hill' (50 metres averaging 1:10). Unfortunately, it's not steep enough for me to change from a walking to a climbing gait, and using stairs has the problem that I can't test...

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Now that Bristow have taken over SAR the long time excuse that SAR provides training for military personnel is no longer applicable.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. ...

Xmas by Roger Chapman[_3_]
Season's greeting to all who still read this news group. I don't think I am getting any news from this ng from my new news provider so I am sending this message on spec. So if this gets through it is also a goodbye to all I have met or corresponded with since I first signed up to this ng back...

Open Street Mapping by John B
I've been contributing a few local paths and trails to the Open Street Map project and am happy to do what I can to support it. While there are good apps that use OSM mapping on my (Android) phone, I haven't yet found software that will do an equivalent job on my Win7 PC/netbook. Garmin's...

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

BT Usenet access by John B
It seems that BT is cutting access to Usenet as of early December. As a frequent lurker - but only occasional contributor - to this group, I just wondered if there were any alternatives other than Google Groups? John B

Newsgroup providers by Nick Maclaren[_3_]
In case anyone knows an answer, do any of them provide archives and a reasonable search mechanism? Other than Goggle Gropes, of course. Regards, Nick Maclaren.

cleaning trekky poles by John B
Over the years, I've tried different ways to clean trekky poles so that they don't seize up. None of them has seemed to stand the test of time and I wonder whether I'm missing something obvious. Last time I tried gunk with a long thin brush, but it seems that the insides of the tubes just keeps...

Trangia by [email protected]
I did some testing this year, and a simple gas stove is vastly less effective with even a breath of wind (probably only force 1-2!) But I am reluctant to go to meths because of the much lower calorific value. Unfortunately, Trangia's Web pages are hopeless in many respects, merely give boiling...

pro-action tent by Andy Wilkes
For those who responded to my first post, asking for opinions on this tent, I took the plunge and purchased one. First impressions after putting it up in the garden are pretty good and I am looking forward to giving it a maiden voyage in the "wilds". For the money it appears better than...
