Enjoying this one ...
Just had a quick look and ff through.
I will start watching this with a whisky in hand and my legs in a quilt
What he said /\ /\ /\
That is added to watch later.
Watching bits at work. This is great!!
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..."
Oddly captivating, I’m about an hour in
Got as far as him agrivating the nymph tick .. Whisky has kicked in and I've a bag to pack early morning.... Time to flatten the hay ... No doubt to dream of bothies .... Cheers @Shewie
Enjoyed it very much. Ta for the link.
Not quite like anything else. Thanks for the link!
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.
Started watching it, good stuff sofar
Good little movie. Enjoyed it years ago, now again. Anyone read his books?
No, but will check them out, thanks.
Books? Links/titles by any chance?
Looking forward to visiting Japan with him on the weekend thanks stourvale !
Found books on Amazon.
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.
I watched this again last night when I couldn't get off to sleep in bed, I didn't notice the first time I watched it but I see he used white spirits in his Whisperlite, has anyone ever tried this?
I met a German lad on the SUW who was trying to run his Trangia on it without much success, I guess the pressurised system allows it to burn much hotter? I ran my Whisperlite on unleaded for a lot of years, which again wouldn't be much kop in a Trangia
I watched it last night after watching Hooks earlier on, I enjoyed seeing him as a young man after watching him as an older man previously. Also enjoyed seeing the everyday Japanese man and woman, a nice antidote to the book Nemesis by Max Hastings about the war in the Pacific that I'm reading. The Japanese don't come out looking good in that book.
