Re: Silly Ideas...

Another, to me, depressing story and photos was of the queues for the summit of Everest. Something is going badly wrong with the concept of 'challenge' somewhere. I saw that yesterday Reg - I can only think the modern 'bucket list' mentality has gone wild. I always wonder how many people would do t...

Re: I'd like to share this.

"the freedom to fail" I think that's a great point to make , especially with kids ,at school their told that you have to pass this and pass that without explaining that failing is what breeds success and makes a rounded character ( this applies to some adults too :wink: )

Re: Ladies and gents, I give you the On-One packraft.

Same as stu ,I used to love paddling ,but there are serious issues with access rights ect in England and Wales ,plus having the time to justify one I don't have ( a 2 daybike trip would easily turn to 4-5 with a raft which would then turn to divorce :lol: )
