    If it's worth hiking this man has probably done it, and he probably did it 20 years before anyone else even thought of it. A true pioneer in the world of lightweight adventure, for ramblings, trip reports and gear reviews be sure to check out Chris' blog

    He's a legend and from what I've seen of him on YouTube he seems like a really nice guy.

    I was lucky enough to meet him a few years ago at the Dales Outdoor show, I only had a couple of minutes with him but it was nice to have a chat, I got him to sign his new book for me too :)

    I have his backpacking guide but I must pick up his new book. Was it a good read ?

    Yep, nice guy. Met Chris in May, very briefly when he was walking the TGO with Tony Hobbs.
    Previously E mailed him a few times with comments and questions. He always replies.
    I like that tale of when he was up The Ben and walking in his fav' sandals; these other guys in big clumpy boots shouted over to him and told him that he needed to get himself some decent footwear and it was obvious he didn't have much experience in these matters.......If only they had known !!!
