OK David_S now that's funny, But what's up with the pants? Going for a Robinhood men in tights look?
Not really. Actually they are polyprop long johns worn under shorts. It's a practical arrangement fairly common here, which protects your legs form cold, wind, sandflies and scratches, does not drag when wading through rivers and dries out quickly. We actually choppered in to this spot and then took 5 solid days to walk out, through some pretty tough country. At one stage we progressed no more than 100 yards in an hour!

This was the "easy" country



and this the hard
