  • UPDATE - The main upgrade is now finished. The site should now be functioning as normal, I will be making tweaks over the weekend, particularly to look of the site. If you notice something is broken or have any comments please let me know. Many thanks Matt (Lithril)

Picked up a new book on Thursday, 'the walkers guide to outdoor clues and signs' I'm only 75 odd pages in, seems quite good so far, lots of working out direction at the moment.
I've been working my way through the same book as well lately. It is an absolute compendium of useful information and ways to notice patterns in the ordinary and every day.
I think it's a book that is best dipped into on occasion in between practical use of the tips, as it is a massive amount of information to take in.
Thoroughly recommend it for anyone interested in the outdoors.

Looks like the sort of book to have if only to pass some time. I learned that indicator species can tell you a lot about the area, that books often miss out.

Look inside the cover. Would you please post the ISBN for me? International Standard Book Number.

To pass the time could save your butt, some day. Most of my visitors are city people. Not two clues to rub together.
I have been asked: " what do you see in your world?" Just things you should know about, I suppose.

I thoroughly recommend all of of Tristan Gooley's 'natural navigation' series

I've been lucky enough to do one of his courses

He is a fascinating fella - knows his stuff - respected all over the world

I've done one of his courses too - at the Royal Geographical Society no less; get me eh? I enjoyed it & got a lot out of it. There's definitely plenty of good stuff in his writing too, though I have to be honest and admit that I find it quite hard going.
