P4240377 7th Nov 2014 Should We Put Strava Signs In The Peak District?

It occurred to me the other day that we have a national park full of amazing natural resources - crags and cliffs, woods and trails - but that we don't do a very good job of signposting them. I've...

Denmark 7 4th Nov 2014 Family Cycle Touring In Denmark

It started out as a basic concept. To go away as a family with our bikes. Simple.  Actually not so simple. There were some sub-clauses you see. The boys are only 5 and 8 so no big hills; it was...

Swimming Sign 11th Aug 2014 Are We Becoming Too Cautious?

A number of separate things happened this weekend which made me think that we are becoming over-cautious here in the UK. First of all I read a press release issued by the Snowdonia Mountain...

Northofthesunmasterposter copy1 5th Aug 2014 A Film Every Teenager Should Watch

MED 0031 30th Jul 2014 Couch Surfing, Hitch Hiking & Ironman Karma

VOD 11th Jul 2014 A Shift In Attitudes - Adventure Film Rental Comes Of Age?

Open 7th Jul 2014 Don't KNow What You've Got 'Till It's Gone

I remember listening to a song by that title as a teenager and applying it to all manner of things and thinking how true it was then. I'd re-write the phrase now as 'You don't know what you've...
