    Fantastic. I'm about half way through and really enjoying it. Thank you.

    Why though do I keep having this intrusive thought, "100 brass hooks, plus screws, say, 50g each..."

    Thanks, I've downloaded that and thrown it on my phone for some of the long van journeys I'm doing to and from work this week.

    That really is wonderful, think I'll download a copy for re-watching when ever I feel like it.

    Just binge-watched it all the way through. Totally compelling. This man (Stephen Pern) is way off the top of the cool scale, he's so understated. Should be compulsory viewing for all those 'iconic' self-possessed video hiking heroes. Ta @Shewie

    If you enjoyed that one try Stephen's walk down the spine of Japan. He's a bit younger in this video.

    Watched in the van to and from work today, that was excellent thank you. If it had been filmed in higher res, you could put that straight on the telly and it would be streets ahead of most of the 'outdoor' type of programs. Wonderfully put together, interesting things about the country we live in and a person you can relate to. Probably could do with lightening the load a little though, the size of that pack made me wince a few times but what a fabulous adventure to go off on.

    Just watched the whole of Hooks by Stephen Pern and thought it was excellent. The thought of carrying that pack though made me tired.

    Watched the Japan one last night on the way back from work. Ordered the Divide trail book this morning and it's sitting on my kindle waiting for an opportune moment. Glad to have found them, would love to know a bit more about him, seems an interesting life. All I know so far is that he did three years in the Paras. Perhaps the books will shed a bit more light.
