Update on Colin Fletcher

I've received the book The Thousand Mile Summer. Amazingly fast service from a secondhand bookseller in the USA - just £11.00 including carriage. I've started reading it and it's very well written and should be good. However, Mr Fletcher was no ultra-light hiker. His pack weight, not including water, was 55lb 1oz, including fishing equipment. His sleeping bag weighed 5lb 10oz.
