    Hi all,

    Lurker here finally introducing myself. I'm from the UK but based in Milan now and looking forward to hiking some of the pre-alps, alps and the dolomites. Looks like lots of interesting topics being discussed on the forum. I just got back from a 7 week trip in Chile and Argentina, trying to lighten my load sensibly and get back out there as soon as spring hits

    Welcome to the forum Stu, I don't know how or why but you're name seems familiar ??? Probably nothing rational though :D

    Thanks! Hmm could have bought some gear from you in the past?! Otherwise I'm not sure!

    Hi All,

    I have been lurking here for a while. I do most of my walking in North Wales, as it's the easiest place for me to get to. I like camping on summits. Apart from a few day walks, I didn't manage any summit camping last year as I was recovering from a bowel cancer operation and subsequent chemo. However, now back to something like fit, thanks to my other hobby (cycling), I am looking forward to the rain stopping so I can camp on some more summits!

    Thanks. I just apply my walking philosophy to the disease. Keep positive and just keep going:)

    A combative attitude helped me.
