This weeks podcast is dedicated to Friedrichshafen the big European Outdoor Trade fair which lets those in the trade or press, fondle and drool over forthcoming products for 2018, that might set the heart racing. Our European Correspondent Roman Ackle took up the baton in a very hot and sticky few days to wander the halls on our behalf searching for products, developments, new brands and emerging trends which would be of interest to the self powered traveler. Listen to the podcast for the full taster of things to come next year.
Along the way he met and shared sympathy with Chris Townsend, who diligently visits these shows and is bombarded with information about the key products over and over again, every year, each time something ‘new’. How he holds it all in his head no one knows, but it is one of the things which makes Chris the knowledgeable super hero in the outdoors world.
So in no particular order here are a few few of the items we discuss in the podcast and links for further information.
