    I'm Stan Appleton and though I've just joined the forum I've been backpacking since well before it was even called that ! I'm 70 years old and live in Nidderdale AONB, even had 4-night trips from my own back door. I've walked 8 TGO Challenges and a lot of other outings in Scotland but love Wales too including tackling the Cambrian Way in three bites. Not a fan of the Lakes as too busy though I understand its attractions.
    These days I use a Tarptent Notch as my 'go to' tent or my TN Voyager Superlite though I've one or two others tucked away. Prefer meths to gas (Stormin' stove with Evernew Solo pots) and love both my PHD Minim 300 and WM Highlite bags. Too many rucksacks for my own good but used Gossamer Gear Murmur on this year's TGOC but Berghaus Fasthike 42 last year.
    I'm also a trail runner, orienteer and a UKA running coach.
    Looking forward to using the forum to keep up to date.
