Did you hear the one about?

 

You’re grouped with friends around a campfire in the woods on a dark and moonless night. You’ve pitched the tents, lit the fire, cooked the food (all with your camping equipment from ProAdventure) and settled down to an evening of talk, singing and general campfire camaraderie.

      Shedding Light on the World of Headtorches

       

      Running, walking, trekking, camping, paddling, climbing, walking the dog, finding the car, finding your keys – whatever you’re up to, its a lot easier when you shed some light on the situation.

      Now, i’m no expert, but with work, training and finding myself doing many different things day by day, (and admittedly still being a little scared of the dark, even at 20-something) I need to make sure i’m always equipped, whether its finding my way around my friends bunkhouse, trail running or navigating on the hills.
      My solution? Three beauties from the Petzl range! Continue reading Shedding Light on the World of Headtorches

      The hobby that’s a cut above the rest

       

      The term whittling can refer to the art of carving shapes from wood using a knife, or the time-occupying, non-artistic process of repeatedly shaving slivers from a piece of wood. (We know which one we’re better at.) Continue reading The hobby that’s a cut above the rest

      UK Tentipi Camp May 2017 – North Wales

       

      Tentipi camps have been popular in Europe for many years, where a like minded bunch of people, who have a common love of camping in their Tentipi Tents, get together to socialise, play and have a good weekend.

      ProAdventure held the UK’s first Tentipi Camp in April 2015 on the banks of the River Dee, attended by over 60 people. There were bushcraft activities, canoeing and plenty of opportunity to talk around the campfire.
      Our 2016 camp, held in the Welsh borders was just as popular with old friends and new enjoying the scenery and activities offered by our campsite hosts at Underhill Farm.

      We aim to make every camp a little bit different and we are learning as we go. Our first camp this year is at Carrog on the River Dee from 5th to 7th May. We would love to invite you along if you have your own Tentipi and if you are interested in buying Tentipi we have a few Tipis for hire but be quick as they go fast. Either way you will need to book.
