Almost 10 years of podcasting and 10 years of retailing in the Outdoor Industry I’ve noticed some significant changes in shopping patterns and where and how people research their gear. This podcast looks back at those 10 years and the effect our habits have made in the retail world as we know it. Do you feel happier to be able to talk to a retailer, or do you prefer a bargain, no matter where it’s come from?
The TGO Awards are upon us once again and we have been nominated this year in the on-line retailer category. If you would like to vote and support what we do at backpackinglight.co.uk, then please pop along to the TGO Website and click the appropriate boxes in each category. Every vote helps 🙂
Also Rose takes one of her friends wild camping for the first time and reflects on her fears and concerns. This leads me nicely into my personal challenge of 12 months wild camping using either a bivy, tarp or hammock, but keeping it lightweight and simple, no matter the weather!
On this trip they used a Luxe Habitat and walking up and over the Black Mountain in Wales. It was a big first time for Sue and after this experience she is now considering much more adventurous trips such as the TGO Challenge!
