    57: Cold and Alone on the White River

    14 MAG 2024 · This is the story that we promised in the last episode - a tale of cold water, dogs in canoes and unexpected swimming. Also a tale of hypothermia, kit choice, decision making and reflecting on the circumstances prior and post. It features our friend (and previous podcast guest) Terry and his buddy 'Grizz', and took place a couple of months ago on the White River in Indiana, US. The story itself is in the main show, the aftershow is more of a conversation and informal sharing of opinions on how to do it better next time. This episode is a little different from what we have done before, and it's something of an experiment. We are looking for other stories to cover in a similar format - so if you have one yourself, or know of someone with a good story then please get in touch with Amy.

  • 56: Wet Cold vs Dry Cold

    25 APR 2024 · There are many elements which affect how cold you feel and how cold you actually are at the core, in this episode Richard talks about the subtle external factors which can have a big impact on our bodies in lower temperatures. We've covered hypothermia in previous episodes but the exact meaning of the term 'hypothermia factory' relates to the perfect mixture of cold and wet with some wind thrown in for good measure, the ideal conditions for pulling away the heat generated by your body.

  • 55: The Knoydart Gear Exchange

    4 NOV 2023 · Firstly, apologies for the change in audio quality partway through the episode. This episode is a little bit different, Richard was invited to go with Dave, Chris and Alistair for a multi-day hike on the Knoydart peninsula in Scotland. This peninsula on the West coast is surrounded by mountains, lochs and bogs. It is only accessible by boat, or by a 16-mile (26 km) walk through rough country, and the seven miles (11 km) of tarred road found in the small (population of 111) settlement of Inverie are not connected to the UK road system. The plan for the trip was to travel in to the peninsula by ferry from Mallaig, and then walk back to the vehicle left there over the course of 3 days, carrying everything which they would need for the journey. This recording is their after action report about the kit they took, decisions made and overall impressions.

  • 53: Embracing Discomfort and Training for the Worst

    30 GIU 2023 · We discuss the benefits of embracing discomfort and deliberately training in self-inflicted, less than perfect conditions. This method leads to increased resilience and a better understanding of how your body and mind will react if you encounter difficulties when you least expect it. As humans we tend to appreciate comfort in our lives, we function better when everything is just as we like it to be. This doesn't just relate to things like where we sleep and the clothes we wear but also maintaining our perfect temperature and not being in pain. However whenever we spend time pushing our boundaries outdoors we will inevitably end up in discomfort at some point and it can make or break your day. The good news is that you can train for periods of hardship and it will help you on the day when you are involuntarily put into that position. Take the slightly steeper route, carry just a bit of extra weight in your pack on a local trail, put yourself into hardship when it's safe to do so and learn how to keep your head ready for when it happens and you aren't expecting it.

  • 52: Big wall climbing, real-life survival and accidental comedy with Andy Kirkpatrick

    14 MAG 2023 · Richard Prideaux talks with Andy Kirkpatrick about all things big wall, winter expeditions and doing things the hard way. It's safe to say that Andy has made his way through life so far by pushing himself and deliberately pitting himself against his own barriers. From a young age he learned to climb and handle himself in the outdoors and progressed from there, teaching himself the ropework skills he would need to climb big walls like El Capitan. Since then Andy has become a well-known and award winning British climber, writer and speaker. This episode is a little bit different to usual but we really hope that you enjoy it, Andy has done a lot to talk about in his life and this only really covers the tip of the iceberg. Useful info: Chossy means loose, unstable, soft or very overgrown rock which can't really be trusted.

  • 49: Assumption of Function - and why you should avoid it

    16 MAR 2023 · This episode Richard Prideaux goes into great depth about the importance of not making assumptions about your gear. Let's say that you've bought a brand new stove for an outing - have you tested it before relying on it to sterilise your water and cook your food? You grabbed a bag which should contain your small emergency kit -did you look inside to make sure everything was there and in a usable condition? We've all 'been there, done that' in terms of forgetting a small item like a fork, and having to make do or borrow one, but next time it could be more serious unless you pick up on the little reminders that we can all be human.

  • 48: Under the Influencer

    22 FEB 2023 · Delving a little bit further into why Instagram (and tiktok, twitter, facebook etc.) is not your training provider, inspired by a conversation that Richard Prideaux had with our friend https://www.instagram.com/luke_brady_johnson/ This is not to say that there isn't a bounty of useful and legitimate knowledge out there on the internet, just a few pointers on how to sift out the people who are thinking less about how what they say will be used and more about the likes, shares and exposure.
