Hi everybody, and welcome to my site.

I graduated from a department for astrophysics and I am a theoretical physicist by profession, with a PhD in plasma physics theory. My experience in theoretical physics covers decades of work, and in all these years I have also been mountaineering. 

I was born in the mountains, and I have been into hiking and mountaineering for as long as I can remember. But my first higher mountain which I climbed solo in 1986 was Triglav (2864 m, 9396 ft) in what is now in the Slovenian Alps. 

I run several outdoor sites with thousands of posts and with even more comments, questions, and my replies. You will realize this after reading some of my posts here.

Namely, I sometimes point out to some products or tours described in these sites, and use them when I want to explain something. As an example, my photo here is linked to my full text describing a climb in the Italian Alps. 

Sometimes I receive questions that are already answered somewhere in the mentioned sites. But my replies are scattered around, and it is difficult, or better to say impossible, to find one which I would show when a similar or the same question arrives from yet another visitor. 

This is why I have decided to create this site that I shall use as a reference. The point of the texts here is information, therefore the site is kept as simple as possible, there are no bells and whistles.

In other words, you need a short and to the point answer, and you find it here. No more no less. If you are happy with the answer, I shall be as well, so do not hesitate to let me know in the comments sections under the posts. 

On the other hand, there can be no end of questions related to outdoor activities. For this reason I expect that this site will continue to grow and there will be more and more useful knowledge accumulated here. So you might want to bookmark this site and use as a reference as well. 

Note also that all the texts in my sites are written by myself. After thousands of published posts, I still type with two fingers only, and there are no texts here written by ghostwriters or by AI robots. Thank you for reading.

Me on Jalovec.Hi, I am Jovo, the founder of this OutdoorsFAQs site and several other outdoor sites. I have been mountaineering for almost 40 years already, and I have created this site to use as a reference for various questions that I receive in my sites. Being a theoretical physicist by profession, I tend to base my answers on facts and on my own personal experience.
