    Hi guys girls, my name is Steve and I live in a very small flat town in the fens of Cambridgeshire called march.

    I'm a train driver by trade and currently work for greater Anglia trains.

    Teepee of this parish put me on to the forum.

    I'm also a member on bcuk.

    Very new to hiking and wild camping, and ever since I tried to carry the weight of a small elephant on my back in the Galloway with Shewie and teepee iv been striving to get my pack weight down!!

    No idea what my current base weight is, let's just say it's work in progress lol!!
    Great to see a uk based forum dedicated to travelling light, I'm looking forward to picking people's brains and getting ideas on how to save the grams (I do however flat refuse to cut a toothbrush down!! At the minute a way lol) and tips on making life easier in the hills.

    Am currently stuck indoors as iv had an operation last month which ended with me spending 22 nights in hospital, it's looking like September when I can get out next, so I'm relying on you people posting lots and lots of trip reports on here so I can live my outdoor adventures through everyone else for now lol.

    I'm also an active member of the fenland mountain rescue, but funnily enough we don't get many call outs.....

    Hope I haven't bored you all too much!!

    I look forward to being part of the furniture round here!!

    All the best

    Steve
