I finally got joined up. It took a leg-up from a friend to get in, but once I was in and dusted myself down I was fine. There’s a lot of good stuff, a bit of eyebrow raising and a surprising amount of “Och, I do that” which was nice. Magic, and there’s such a backlog to get through. I’ll enjoy that with a cuppa or two.
An awful lot about bears at the moment on their forums. I’m still on the forums here arguing the merits of wearing trail shoes on our daft wee hills, and they’re taking on killer wildlife and firearms issues on proper hills over there. In trail shoes.
There seems to be interest in Scotland and experience of wet weather backpacking techniques, that’s handy then…
Seen a few familiar faces on the forums there, and in the articles. There was also my first sight of the new Montrail Hardrock Mid, my heart wants it to be good. My head says that Columbia could make better fish fingers than shoes.
Anyway, the best dressed lightweight hiker is apparently wearing this at the moment. The pack is definitely small, I’m looking forward to seeing the kitlist.
