    Could not see it anywhere so...

    A guide on a survival weekend who had been missing overnight in the Brecon Beacons has been found alive.
    Steve Walker, 34, was last seen on Monday lunchtime when was leading a group of four campers from Romford, London, near Pontneddfechan, Powys.

    He had fallen into a river and hurt his leg after becoming separated from his group in bad weather.
    As emergency services looked for him, he walked up to a BBC Wales news crew who were reporting on the search.

    Anybody know him? I'm glad he turned up safe and well but the guy needs to buy some Civi walking gear before he heads out again.

    Talk about 'Man at Q&M!' Also whats with the knee pads?

    Sounds like he found the news crew not the other way around.

    Just had a look.

    They need their website sorting out. That shade of green needs toning dwon a bit.

    I do like the 'Get Fit or Go Home' - Surely a great way for a business to make money!

  7. It would have been a piss poor advert for his survival weekend if he had died.

    Wasn't there some Ray Mears or Bear Ghylls inspired bloke found dead in a bothy in Jocklandia earlier this year ?
     
  9. Rings a bell, found with 3 t shirts, 4 pairs of socks, some cling film and a butter knife and had planned to live like Mr Grills for a year or something.

    Only problem was he didn't have a full crew and access to 4 star hotels.

  12. Can we assume the group he was "leading" made it out safely without his special survival skills? No mention of an ML ticket 'n the choice of personal kit suggests an embarrassing fail of a walty "SF training" nature.

    Hilarious. You couldn't make it up.

    Would be interesting to see what qual's he's actually got and how he manages the insurance on these little 'hiking' trips?
     
  14. He does not seem to offer topo/nav courses on his site.

    I think he should print out a page from his website and stick it on his back...talk about a Hi Viz panel!!!!
