Some people call them trekking poles or hiking poles, but in these parts we call them hiking poles!  What are your thoughts on walking poles?  Do you love them or hate them?

The Walking Pole Poll!

Live for the Outdoors has put together a poll on whether you love or hate walking poles?

At the time of writing, LFTO’s poll states that 81% of people do indeed love walking poles.  Leaving just about 1 in 5 hating them.

Having recently travelled to India I was gutted to find out that I had missed out on an opportunity to visit the Indian Mountaineering Foundation Museum in New Delhi. I found some information about the museum on a tourist map but neither the address nor the location of the museum were actually shown on the map. A taxi driver told me that it was a long way off and, since I was running short of time I abandoned the idea. However it turned out that the museum was just round the corner from my hotel so I could have gone there after all!
