Next Event…..

National Trust Top of the Gorge Festival, 22-24 June!

Head down to Cheddar Gorge in Somerset between 22-24 June for the National Trust’s inaugural Top of the Gorge Festival.  On Saturday I’ll be speaking at 1130 in the Adventurer’s Tent, taking you on a whirlwind journey of adventure from discovering lost Colonial treasures in the Sahara desert to coming face-to-face with a hungry mountain bear on my World-first solo winter crossing of the Translyvanian Alps.  I’ll also be running various survival skills workshops around the campfire over the weekend.  Looking forward to seeing you there!

Adventure begins at the edge of your comfort zone……

Adventure really doesn’t have to be about scaling foreboding Alpine peaks or trekking across the vast emptiness of a scorched African desert.  Although that stuff is totally awesome too!

Adventure is about what you feel inside when you take a step into the unknown and begin to push the boundaries of your comfort zone.  It’s about being free to explore your physical and mental limits and gaining experiences and memories that cannot be bought – but must be earned!
