OMM wet weekend

Am back at home again after another weather bashing this time
at the omm in the lake district.
Its been seen on all the news channels seen on the BBC news and in the newpapers. There have been some harsh repotage in the news if you want to see sensible tales of people who were there check out sleepmonsters .

There are a lot of thank you's to be said and those go the organisers the marshals the MRT teams that attended and the competitors themselves.

Here is a video of our river crossing near to Gatesgarth mid camp. I hope your event and weekend went well and your all back home safely.

Autumn Breezes

Well another week of wet weather and winds in the Lakes. Makes picking apples alot easier. Work has involved a mixture of great clients and play has been walking and paddling with Keela the dog.

Thanks to all my clients, UPM Manager's had a taste of the first snows on Hellvelyn. A cold and windy traverse of Englands favourite mountain. Also working on an ML training course with Andy Brown and Terry Hubble. This involved an overnight expedition into Ennerdale West Cumbria. The multifunctionality of my day to day work kit, an Event Montane Superfly XT, is tested from sea level to 3,000ft and proves its worth. I will be putting kit reviews up soon.
I am now looking toward winter if you want to practice winter skills please get in touch for dates etc.
