Welcome!

Managed through carelessness to lose years of posts so it will soon be time to start over. Plus, happily, I've been diverted by a travelling life.

No prizes for guessing what will be top of the 2019 New Year Resolutions!

Walk safely on snow and ice


Last winter brought large areas of the country to a standstill for weeks on end and kept large sections of the population housebound for fear of injury from the treacherous conditions underfoot.  With Yaktrax, walking on packed snow and ice will give you the same solid, predictable grip you are accustomed to feeling on dry surfaces.


Yaktrax is a unique, patented, compact, lightweight traction device that simply fits neatly over whatever shoes you want to wear and is held in place by an injection moulded thermal plastic elastomer. The scientifically engineered coil design is protected against rusting and will give you reliable traction as the hundreds of biting edges come into contact with the ice and packed snow beneath your feet. The Yaktrax Walker retails at £15 and the Yaktrax Pro, with an extra strap across the instep, at £20 and they are available in four different sizes from most good outdoor retailers in the UK.
