Nine years ago, yes NINE, in 2010 I released a short 3 part series entitled Three Men In The Cairngorms which recorded an audio diary of Lee, Tony and myself as we headed into the Cairngorms for a weeks walking and wild camping.

It has been three years since I heard any new Podcasts which really float my boat. There’s been quite a few I’ve gone through which never get past the first 30 seconds.

It doesn’t seem too much to ask does it? One hour, to yourself, outside, taking stock, breathing in, getting some exercise on a daily basis? But how many of us actually do this? Do you, like me perhaps, tell yourself that one hour in the garden doing tasks is the same thing. Or one hour cleaning the car, doing some DIY, cutting the hedges, cutt ...…
 
I spoke with Carl and Ellie last in September 2018 when they had 7 trails left to complete on their epic personal challenge of being the first people to walk every Waymarked Trail in the Republic of Ireland.

I cant image there are many hikers who at some stage or another haven’t complained about back, knee or ankle pains in some form or another and no doubt we have all just put it down to being just ‘one of those things’. Or maybe you are someone who states that you have weak ankles, but maybe have never thought to ask yourself how, why and when th ...…
