The Trailbalze, is a UK designed and manufactured lightweight collapsable pole from the small family company Mountain King. It has proved to be a great success, especially in the arena of Adventure Racing. Carolyn and Simon King take us through their story and plans for 2013. www.mountainking.co.uk
The ever chirpy Sam Fountain from Shewee, adds more background to her story and the reception this little company is getting from all female outdoors users around the world. Its always interesting to get the female perspective on something us guys take for granted and as usual, Sam always is one step ahead of the game when it comes to PR. www.shewee.com
An overheard conversation in the press room led to my interview with Sarah Howcroft who has started a unique website for those wishing to sell, donate or pass on their old outdoor gear to others who might appreciate it. Recycling is a responsibility we all need to take notice of and this website will offer comfort to those with conscience. www.recycleoutdoorgear.com/
More coming soon. Stay tuned!
