I should welcome criticism on this forum of the stuff I've put up recently on Scottish mountains [eg Quinag, Suilven and Liathach]. I hope it's now possible for any member to plan a holiday in Scotland largely from this site - but is it safe to assume they will all appreciate the need for a good map and compass and suitable clothing, if they mean to undertake these peaks? Frankly, I'd rather put nothing than be responsible for a disaster but it seems tedious to put the same advice each time.

Thanks, David

Not at all David, if I understand the topic right, the info we put up at GLOBO is that of OUR experiences and there is no force for others to follow, just to enjoy all of it from internet. If others wish to follow our paths then as they need, let them enjoy our footpaths but be prepared physically and with the correct maps. Every one must prepare themselves for every adventure and even a short hike/walk, whether they choose to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro, walk along the Great Wall of China, or a simple hike in the local hills. I was an active climber but now at 130kg and going on 50, must choose my mountains and walks accordingly, others too!

That is an eloquent thought, Rudi. I agree with you. We share our experiences through our postings on this website. The choice to follow in our path is that of the individual, it is not being forced upon them. We welcome others to share.

Thanks, both of you. I got a sudden lack of confidence and wondered whether I should delete. However I'm sure you are right and I shall leave it alone now.

Thanks again, David
