Hi Biggles and Locum76,

Sorry to go off thread for a minute, but you guys should check out 'Dangerous River' by R. M. Patterson about his adventures down the Nahanni - it's an inspirational read, packed with wonderful tit-bits of bushcrafty information. Sargy posted me a dog-eared copy of the book many years ago - it's a must have book shelf addition if you are into wilderness paddling!

Cheers,

Ben

Any news on any "non-arctic" events with Woody? His team were top-notch last time, so joining in another exped with them would be excellent if possible.

Cheers.

Apologies for the delayed response, just back from Borneo. We are just confirming dates and locations Agile, Tony and I have been uber busy these past few months but we will be posting course and exped dates and locations in the very near future.

Regards

Woody.

Would love to do the asia expeditions, would be interested in the eastern european ones also.

Out of interest do many people go on these expeditions alone? i really want to go but i know none of my friends would spend the money on going, they all prefer to drink their money away!

As I'm unlikely to ba able to afford it I was hesitant to even suggest it. But I think an Andes Mountain exped into Inca country.

The wife and I are looking at a trip to include a tour Machu Picchu but hotels all the way, roll on 2015 :) If younger and fitter I'd love a backpacking trip down there.

That's quite surprising,
I voted for Eastern Europe and US/Canada but I was expecting there'd be more votes for Asia... come on Eastern Europe! :D

Expedition and tourist trip, two different animals for me.
If expedition i am more interested for Eurasia: Altay Mountains Eastern/Western Sayan Mountains , Putorana Plateau, Stanovoy Range.
For tourist trip, canoe trip interesting in Sweden, Norway two weeks in autumn.
But nothing from list.

uk mainly in the Midlands though
I finally finish my 22 year sentence from the army next year and as part of a little time off for good behaviour I am looking to doing some trips once I am out and fancy free, till I get a proper job :(

I would look to eastern europe and the States and Canada and Scandinvia. I have seen a fair bit of the world and want to see more. I love europe as a whole and love Canada too and Norway and Denmark aren't bad either but I like going to there and would easily go back and see more of them.

My ultimate are polar, tiger forest and tracking the Sahara. My grandad was in the LRDG in WW2 and I have his old field notes and diaries. Would love to follow in his proverbial footsteps. And the arctic stuff would be to prove to myself I could do it

Do you mean a forest where Tiger's live or have you been spellchecked away from Taiga?

Any chance you could scan or photograph all those notes and diaries and stick them up on the internets for posterity?

:)

Spell check did indeed take over, it was taiga (it also suggests twig) . I might just do that actually!
