    Welcome to the forum, musitwain.

    It's probably a typo; it should be 'tramping'.
    Please do not edit your question after it has received a response. Such editing can make the response hard for others to understand.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Please use correct capitalisation in the forum.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    As I said in my last post, please use correct capitalisation.

    - Capitalise the first word of every sentence.
    - Always capitalise the word "I" (first person singular).
    - Capitalise proper nouns (ie "Stanislaus" in your original post).
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    Thank you for using correct capitalisation. One more note: you need to put a space after a full stop and before the first word of the next sentence, as I have shown above.
