I was away hiking in Knoydart last week, so I’ve accumulated a few more links for you than usual.

Drakensberg Nov.’18 Pt.1 – spectacular images from Alex Nail.

Restoring Spirits in Glen Feshie – Chris Townsend on the restorative powers of wild camping.

Tents for Thru-Hiking – a fantastic compendium of tents suitable for long-distance hiking from Cam Honan. Happy to contribute to this.

Taking a Sketchbook for a Walk – a great feature on walking and drawing by Liz Wakelin.

2018 Round-Up Part 1: Camps – Matthew King has had some brilliant wild camps this year.

Trees for Life to plant high-altitude forest to save rare trees and help mountain wildlife – a good-news conservation story.

Bullet Journal: One Book to Rule Them All – this is an interesting review of the ‘Bullet Journal’ system. I have been using a simplified variant of it for most of my task management for about three years now. It’s by no means perfect but it does have its benefits.

Layers of Time – a great piece by Karen Thorburn.

The Angel’s Share – I enjoyed reading this feature by David Lintern when it was originally published in TGO. He’s now reproduced it on his blog.

Attitudes and Altitude: a new Sidetracked project, and a journey across the Alps

I'll be spending much of the rest of the summer in the Alps, trekking and a bit of running from Ventimiglia to Zermatt. It's going to be an incredible adventure. I can't wait to begin.
