  • The Bluffer’s Guide To Hiking – Simon Whaley
    in today s congested world it s often quicker to leave modern transport methods behind and strike out on Shank s Pony Never ask another hiker for directions Not only does it confirm that you re utterly clueless but for all you know he or she may also be temporarily misplaced You will realise that telling an angry landowner that the sign really should read Trespassers will be sued not Trespassers will be prosecuted is ill advised especially if he is pointing a shotgun at you When your granny told you to put a jumper on because you were cold and she was too mean to put another lump of coal on the fire she was actually training you to be a hiker A hiker always has four season walking boots crampons a survival bag and a two week supply of dried food and that s just when going to collect the morning newspaper If you re eating remember that real hikers never have starters unless they classify the first three rounds as starters Reviews A hearty well done on the Bluffer s Guide to Hiking a cracking read Love the tip about saying a cheery Good Morning to give the impression you ve totally lost track of time Nick Hallisey Country Walking magazine A humorous insight into the world of hiking with a rucsac full of gems and handy hints Lakeland Walker magazine Simon Whaley who is genuinely knowledgeable about the subject manfully tries to balance useful information with the funny bits Fortunately he has a wry sense of humour and if the combination is a little strained at times he clearly feels the need to impart proper guidance on being careful and safe on the whole he brings it off quite well Walkingworld com Amazon sales data on 23rd December 2015 Simon Whaley s Bluffer s Guide pokes gentle fun at the hautiness of some walkers and offers pithy advice on how even the most lax of hikers can hold their own when mixing with those craggy men of the mountains Scotland Outdoors magazine Great little book Very quick and easy to read and parts of it are oh so true The chapter about outdoors shops really hit the nail on the head every time I go to one of those shops I just quietly smile to myself as I look at the shop assistants doing exactly what they book says they do Its a quick read but one you may want to pick up again and again Mr Chef Amazon Review The chapter on how to cope in an outdoor gear shop is hilarious Samuel Muston The Independent I read The Bluffer s Guide to Hiking expecting a totally spoof approach lampooning hikers with numerous witticisms and wisecracks and high degrees of ridicule and satire I was not disappointed as the text is delightfully light hearted and full of humour but it is also genuinely informative and it stresses the very real benefits of hiking Excellent advice
