First, don’t forget that there will be a new episode of Dual Survival on tonight at 9:00pm EST. The new one is titled “Twin Peaks” and the description says:
The hosts descend a muddy volcano in the Nicaraguan jungle.
[By the way, if you want to catch up on most of the season, they're showing "On the Menu" at 5:00pm EST, followed by "Into the Frying Pan", "Trouble in Paradise", and then "The Green Hell".]

Right now I’m reading the book The Old Ways — A Journey on Foot. Written by Robert Macfarlane, a fair bit of it takes place in the Outer Hebrides (and some of it is sailing, not on foot, but that was wonderful to read, too). It is a wonderfully descriptive narration of his journeys.
There is even a part on doing some of his walking barefoot.
