Re: The other Congo trip

I was fortunate enough to be at one of Phil's talks earlier in the year. Truly inspiring stuff from a great orator. A blend of frank storytelling, good humour in the worst of circumstances and an incredible journey. Get the DVD, or even better, go and see one of his talks at some point!

Re: waterfall advice needed

The drop on the lower prysor has a huge tree in it at the minute, which probably wouldn't be good news to swim into - but a great choice if it gets washed away. May I recommend the Einion, just North of Aberystwyth. Couple of pretty amazing drops. Not too far from Wiltshire, short walk in too. The s...

did you phone from a mobile Boom? I tried phoning a while ago from a mobile, and no answer after ten attempts or so, as soon as I tried from a landline, it was answered immediately.

Missing River Guides

I'll begin: Afon Dulas (Corris) ...

Hmmm, plenty of food for thought, thank you! I think the best option has to be to head to my nearest shop and try both. Having heard no watershed horror stories, I think I'm swaying towards this initially, possibly combined with a padded exped drybag for the camera inside the watershed? Many thanks,...

Re: DSLR & boats... advice please!

Cheers guys, I'm interested to hear what adrian has heard in the way of horror stories about peli cases? I think the problem with the 1200 will be the height (only 110mm) as the camera body is 108mm, which is going to be super tight/not provide any impact absorption.

Hi, I've managed to get through a whole year of rivers without taking my camera on the river, which is a total shame. I've been too worried about it getting destroyed should I swim etc. Feeling a little more confident/arrogant (depending on who you talk to) about not swimming these days, so I think ...

Re: AFON EDEN

river is totally tree choked for about 2km after Pont y Grible, a good alternative get on, is just after the fish weir/metal strainer, after the ford at grid SH711290, as the river is clear of trees after this point, and made up for an agonising 2 hours of praying and portaging.
