My Locale Under a bush in Scotland
About Me I've hiked, climbed and backpacked for over 30 years, mostly in the Scottish Highlands. I used to run distance, and adventure races. Injuries have curtailed that. I'm 'into' anything outdoor orientated. Wildlife watching is a favourite past-time.

As a dad that is also a gear freak, my kids know that they should never buy me gear.

Re Toilet practice
Sleep in a quilt, under a floor-less shelter. Simply roll over, lift, and let go. :-) And have a dump under cover before you leave in the morning.

Dave is just jealous of my new Cooper S. He also talks sense, unlike some folk that hike twice a year.

Re Cooper 'S'
