Join me for a free online talk about long-distance walking this Thursday

At 8pm UK time on Thursday the 23rd of February, I'm delighted to be joining renowned outdoor writers Andrew Terrill and Chris Townsend for a chat hosted by Tim Frenneaux of the Adventurous Ink book club. Tickets are free – get yours here.

Our conversation will be about the benefit of immersing ourselves in landscapes and the natural world through the time-honoured tradition of putting one foot in front of another. Specifically, we'll be discussing Andrew's latest book, the remarkable On Sacred Ground, as well as long-distance hiking adventures that all three of us have enjoyed over the years. There will also be references to the classic A Short Walk in the Hindu Kush by Eric Newby, which has been raising a few laughs for me over the last few weeks.

This should be a memorable evening. Chris has been a friend and colleague for the best part of a decade, and I've edited both of Andrew's books – perhaps the finest books I have ever worked on. Between us we must have walked many tens of thousands of miles all over the world (Chris and Andrew substantially more than me). We'll have a great deal to talk about, and I don't think the three of us have ever been in one space before, even if this will be a virtual one.

See you there?

Seek the mayglow while you can, for it is fleeting

May has long been one of my favourite months of the year, but it's not all about Scottish Alpine spring, as you might expect from a mountaineer based in Scotland. One of the things I have learnt about myself is that I need more from nature than mountains.
