An amputee with attitude is in the news, and our Q&A looks at Hiking Terms.

Our picture of the month is trekking gear on display and our photo series looks at paths to  nowhere.

Last month's image received a number of replies though there seemed to be some confusion between Ankhor Watt and a temple in Ankhor Thom called Bayon, which interestingly we featured as our photo series. Perhaps it was a slip in the replies. However, correct answers go to Jody Paige, Gillian McNeil, Geert De Decker, Angelique Clayton, Eddie Von Bargen, Pam Gillespie and Jim Conway.

The image was of Ankhor Watt Temple in Cambodia.

In the News - Amputee at altitude
The loss of a limb did not hinder Arunima Sinha from scaling the highest hurdles. It was a feat--which many would consider impossible--that not only brought back her self confidence but made her an inspiration for everyone back home. Even before the horrible accident which left her an amputee, Sinha was a force to reckon with.

Question of the Month
What is the difference between  'slackpacking' and 'glamping'?
We loved this question. Slackpacking is a term used to describe a hike where you don't have the hassle of  carrying you gear and tent for days on end. Instead, someone carries it for you. All you carry is a your water, lunch, camera and waterproofs in a day pack, while someone else takes care of transporting all your baggage to an overnight stop-over. Glamping however, is essentially slackpacking but on a more luxurious upmarket scale.
If you have a question you want answered, send it to us. We publish one per month.
