Joe Newton fording. This was not a weekend for dry shoes.
Wet shoes can be dried by the fire and inner warmth restored by good company and whisky.
Lightweight backpacking means that you have lots of room for luxury food, since everything else is so light. Martin demonstrating some high cuisine.
We will be back on all the blogs with reports from this trip and all the cool gear that we got a chance to have a first hand look at.
