Re: Sleeping during a climb

Having adequate sleep during climbs is very essential. It ensures that your body gets prepared well for the climb. I would suggest that if you know you have insomnia you get the necessary pills to enable you to get sleep. The last thing you would want during a climb is fatigue and being sleepy. This...

Camping Fears

Whenever I go camping, sometimes I get certain fears, especially at night. I think I have watched many horror movies and most of them follow the same plot. A group of guys decide to go out camping, then at night, an awful creature comes to ambush them. Whenever I recall these type of movies when cam...

Re: Do you have a favorite brand of bike?

It's normal for many people to have their favorite brands for many things, but I don't think I fit into that group. :lol: Talking about bikes, I particularly have no favorite bicycle brand. I only worry about the quality of the product I intend to buy / am using. This is the most important thing in...

Re: Kind of tent

A pup tent is the one I usually have with me when I camp with my friends and sometimes I bring a sleeping bag. I kinda like to sleep in a sleeping bag. Anyways, camping is always fun to go with friends. :) A pup tent is always the best. I believe that having a minimum number of people when sleeping...

Re: What do you leave behind after a campout?

This is a question of an environmentalist who is an advocate against camping in the woods. His impression is that campers tend to ruin nature with the trash. And I have to agree with him although there are responsible campers who are neat with their camp and don't leave trash afterwards. When we ca...

Re: Serious accidents.

I have never experienced an accident while climbing. I once saw a tourist slip to his death after breaking his back. I have since resulted to indoor climbing mostly. I only do outdoor climbing once in a while. I like indoor climbing because risks are minimised. There is also protective gear in case ...

Bad luck during a roadtrip

Whenever I am going for a road trip, I plan before and ensure that I have everything I need in place. Most of the times it is with my friends. However, sometimes bad luck may knock and you find yourselves in a bad situation. I remember one time we went far from home and then our car broke down. We h...

Re: Parking car on side of road for sight seeing

I think when visiting a place, sometimes you do not know what sites you will encounter. When for instance you come across a good view of a hill, the first thing would be to park by the road and take pictures. I understand you might inconvenience other travellers using the same route. However, It wou...

Re: Unplanned trips

I agree that we have to plan for events or even trips before so that we may not encounter problems later. It ensures that everything flows smoothly to the satisfaction of the planner. However, sometimes I prefer unplanned trips. They turn out to be more fun. I remember a day we were coming out of sc...

Re: A life without a bike.

A bike simplifies my portability. Most of the time I am ever running errands for my parents. My bike ensures that I reach my destination on time, therefore, economising my precious time. At other times, I just need some alone time and I pick my bike and go for strolls. We normally have fun with frie...
