TotalOxygen asked me if I’d like to try their ‘Softshell Jacket Lite’, this was just before I headed off to the States. Which was great timing as I didn’t want to take any heavy outerwear but would be out and about and it could be cool in evenings at the end of a day’s outdoorsiness.
I was over in the states recently (we had an empty-nester road trip, very fine it was too). And as part of that we spent some time with old friends Richard, Gina and kids. Richard knows I like a good walk (he can’t not, based on my endless Facebook updates) and he had kindly planned a trip out for the two of us old mates to catchup, chew the fat (and burgers .. later on) and get some views. He lives in upstate New York and the Catskill Mountains are a short drive away, so off we headed on a sunny morning.
I was contacted by Merrell’s marketing partner (BrandNation) as I was in the planing stage for a trip to the USA. This was mostly an empty-nester road trip for Mrs k and I, taking in two cities (Brooklyn/ NYC and Boston) but I had a couple of hikes planned. So the offer of a pair of the new Merrell Allout Sieve hiking sandal was very welcome. Continue reading Kit Review – Merrell Allout Sieve hiking sandal
A short post this time round.. low on time but high on blog write-up angst. I went along to an outdoor bloggers weekend a couple of weeks ago and had a great day of walking (up and around Kinder Scout / Downfall) and a nicely social evening, camping in Nether Booth (Edale area).There are times when I prefer to be solo out on the hills / trails but I’m gregarious at heart so when I spotted an outdoor bloggers weekend / meet-up being organised, I signed up.
Before I headed off to Harris and Lewis I was contacted by Anth at KitShack, who asked me if I wanted to try out one of the products from the online shop. I was after a new wicking / base layer T Shirt, so that was good timing: within a couple of days I was sent the SueMe Arctic Moss Force Of Nature bamboo Tee.
