Hi everyone
« on: 15:52:41, 31/10/20 »

Hope you're all well. I'm James, 39 from Central Scotland.

Found the forum when looking for info about gear. Some good info here. I'm hoping hillwalking will be a regular hobby for me. I've started off slow by doing a fairly easy hillwalk in Perth at Moncreiffe Hill and one in Kilsyth.


Just bought my first pair of walking boots (Merrell Altalight). Very comfortable straight away on a 3 mile local walk. Haven't got them wet yet so hopefully they keep my feet dry. It's a step up from the Nike trainers I was wearing anyway!


I have some questions about other gear. Is it better to make a new thread in a more appropriate section of the forum?


Thanks.

Welcome to the forum from Aberdeenshire- a bit further north. There is a section for Gear in the forum and that would be the best place to get answers to your questions.

Welcome from Newquay at the opposite end of the neighbouring country :)


Wish we had a few of your decent sized hills down my way.
one step then another then another then a bench - please?

welcome

Wondering where YOU walk, hikerg097?

I hope you don't mind me asking, because it strikes me as a bit odd that your third post as a new member is to welcome someone else without having introduced yourself yet.
You are also clearly a person of few words, considering three of your four posts to date  consist of one word only.
We are looking forward to learning more about your walking interests.
