Whether it’s on a beach, in the back garden or out in the woods there aren’t many people who can turn down a lounge in a hammock. The ENO Sub 6 Hammock is designed to be a lightweight and east to use hammock for while out and about in the woods either as a sleep system, or for just relaxing. I’ve had mine for over five years now so long enough to know it’s capable of surviving a good amount of use.
There’s a unique thrill that accompanies planning a hiking trip, especially when it involves conquering bucket list mountains and exploring awe-inspiring routes. As you dive into the world of trip preparation, the anticipation builds, particularly when you find yourself glued to webcams, almost daily tracking the snow as it recedes from the mountains. The hope of timely snowmelt, opening up trails for your adventure, adds an extra layer of excitement. In this blog post, I’m introducing Project quite likely.
If you’re in the market for a high-quality mirrorless camera, the Fujifilm X-T4 and X-T5 are two models that you should consider. These cameras are known for their advanced features, compact size, and high-quality image output. In this blog post, we’ll compare the Fujifilm X-T4 and X-T5, focusing on the differences in weight and resolution and how these factors can impact your photography, particularly for hiking and adventures.
The temperature has dropped, there’s plenty of rain about, so that means one thing – Mushrooms! It’s been a while since I posted on this and now I’m starting my 3rd season collecting mushrooms on my own I thought it was worth a revisit.
I’ve always enjoyed the process of growing or collecting my own food, whether that’s tomatoes, apples, other vegetables or even rabbits from the garden, but one thing I’d never explored was mushroom picking. It’s always seemed complex, risky and something people always have horror stories about. However in recent years we’ve gone out as a family with my father in law while visiting Poland, where this is much more common to the point where at the right time of year, everyone is out at their favourite patch. During these trips I learnt that while mushrooms are complex (There are roughly 15,000 species of fungi in the UK!), it’s possible to learn while being careful what can be taken safely, but more importantly I learnt that the process/experience is just as enjoyable as the eating.
I recently managed to get out for a weekend trip to Snowdonia with a friend of mine to get in a bit of a winter hike up Snowdon and also get my first experience of trad climbing in what can only be described as typically Welsh weather!
