Klean Kanteen is an American family-owned company with a mission. They first developed a non-toxic solution to single-use plastic water bottles in 2004, when they introduced the first stainless steel, BPA-free, reusable water bottle.
Hennessy Hammock’s are one of the most highly regarded hammock brands in the world, and they come with a price tag to match. Or so I thought?
As a climber/mountaineer, kayaker and mountain biker working as an outdoor instructor and part time retail assistant money is not in abundance. 5k on a bike? Acceptable. A few hundred quid on climbing gear here and there? Absolutely! £450 on a set of Lettmann Ergonom Pro paddles? Best £450 I’ve ever spent!! £200? For a Hammock? Your kidding right?
Palms sweaty, legs trembling, bits of gear I had? fallen on an outward pull. I was clinging on hard at about 30ft, knuckles white, fumbling to get a piece of pro in. I was shaking so hard I couldn’t place a wire, nothing would stick, F***, dropped them, dropped the effing wires! Precariously balanced on my foot, I somehow retrieved them, too late, I was PUMPED! I’d contracted Elvis leg and for that moment I thought this is it. I’d reached the brink, so I relaxed, in my head I had already fallen. I clipped the nuts to my harness, leg still shaking erratically, and stepped up on to the other leg. After that I just kept climbing, bold side pulls and smears I easily made it to the top. It was probably the smoothest I had ever climbed but I didn’t return to climbing until my Rock Climbing Instructor training.
Have you….walked up Dinas Bran, paddled down the river, flown the skies, climbed the rocks, seen the black grouse, visited a hill fort, mountain biked a local trail, crossed the aqueduct, done the round, caught a fish, canoed the canal, biked up the Gwernant, ridden One Giant Leap, visited a mountain top, run a local fell race, swum in the river, attempted the Horseshoe pass time trial, the Hell Hole and the pillars at Dinbren?

The Royal International Pavilion was opened by Queen Elizabeth II in 1992. It provides the main venue for the annual Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod, where musicians and dancers from across the world compete in a spirit of friendship and harmony.
Some may not like the idea of canoeing on a canal, but when the canal in question is the Llangollen Canal World Heritage site and in an official Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, overlooked by mountains to North and South West that are Special Areas of Conservation and which itself overlooks the famous River Dee (another SAC) it is a pretty special experience. If you include the stunning bridge in the sky, a 126 foot high aqueduct then you are in for a stunning day out on the Llangollen Canal.
We have been using our Uuni 3 pizza oven at ProAdventure for two seasons now, fortnightly at home, at Tipi Camps for up to 30 people, and for more than 60 nursery children and teachers at our local school. We wanted to share the benefit of experience with you.
There are few sweeter sights for me than a sunny campsite being populated with a couple of dozen Tentipi over the course of an afternoon. By the time the darkness was upon us, most of the forty or so guests had arrived at the fifth UK Tentipi Camp, their tipis pimped and perfect, the fires aglow with coffee pots spluttering away and the odd glasses of grape and grain going down nicely.
