David Hine

David is an enthusiastic backpacker with a high tolerance threshold for rain and bog. His favorite trips are generally amphibious and located mostly in the Scottish Highlands. He therefore accepts wet feet.

Since acquiring a packraft to further his stravaiging ways, David has increased his efforts to reduce pack weight to the minimum necessary for comfort and safety. This effort goes on, to make room for more chocolate.

Favorite Training Grounds: The Scottish Highlands & The Scottish Borders.

Current Plans: I’ll be hiking and packrafting through the Cairngorms and Strathdee during July, then heading out to the Western Isles later in the year. Planning longer trips in the future!
