The Complete Walker - Finally finished

According to Colin Fletcher's "The Complete Walker", which I've finally finished (now ask me anything about treatment of rattlesnake bites or bear attacks; Go on whilst I can still remember the details. I dare you) .....

...... the Hilleberg AKTO - Akto being the Sami word for "Alone".

How eminently appropriate.

And even better advice .....................

"Take this simple test to see if you qualify for solo camping. Shine a flashlight in one ear. If the beam shines out the other ear, do not go into the woods alone"
Bruce Cochran - "Everything You Never Wanted To Know About About Camping"


So, tell us about the treatment you would give to an attacking bear that had been bitten by a rattler.
I'd advise a quick vist to his GP of course!
