Walking poles and cows

Hi, do people think using a walking pole is likely to scare a group of cows and make them take undue interest in you, or is the opposite true and having the pole will protect you from any unwanted attention? Had an encounter with the cows this week on the Gritstone Trail in Cheshire, ie a recognised distance footpath. Wasn't hot, no sign of calves, didn't have a dog, tried to walk well round them, so no apparent 'risk factors' existed, yet they still started walking alongside me, before then starting into a run, but fortunately only once I was ...

outdoor clothing

 please dont tell me im alone on this subject but as a very keen outdoor person and walker i have noticed that i tend to be wearing outdoor gear on a daily basis and most of my wardrobe consists of something of this type of clothing,for example i can throw on a pair of jeans but usually find ive put a light weight walking fleece on instead of the jumper i should of,i guess i just feel comfy in my craghoppers trousers and berghaus fleece,any one else find they are constantly dressed like they are about to tackle the great ...

Rating jelly babies

 it is a medically proven fact that, possibly bananas aside, jelly babies are the greatest walking food. Forget your energy gels (over priced jam in a tube), forget your energy bars (over-priced sawdust 'n' sugar). Jelly babies are the dog's dang lies. So here is the definitive list of the best.

 

1.  RNLI

2. Co-op

3. Waitrose

4. M&S

5. Sainsburys

427. Bassets

Why is lacing boots so difficult?

 I really like my Altberg boots, but I hate re-lacing them after cleaning. Those inflexible narrow metal eyes are difficult enough with new laces, but if there is any damage to your aiglet, (good word), just forget it. And the Rev Dr her indoors has recently bought a pair of Meindl shoes with ridiculous elastic eyelets which took me about 30 mins (and some spectacularly fruity language) to re-lace.

I suppose I'll have to wait for lace able boots until they've invented the waterproof waterproof.

Good hikes and camping from train stations

 Hi, I am looking for suggestions for camp sites that are accessible within a scenic walk from train stations in Devon and/or Cornwall. I am trying to plan an adventure for myself  and my 9 year old son for the summer holidays.  We having been going out for walks locally, we live in East Devon, at the weekend and he will quite happily walk 6-7 miles. Thought it would be nice to organise  a walking holiday with 1-2 nights camping. Possibly Dartmoor? Any suggestions?
