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!

Recycle old outdoor gear


A new service is dedicated to helping us all find a solution to used but serviceable outdoor gear taking up space in cupboards, lofts and garages. Recycle Outdoor Gear (ROG) is a free of charge, internet-based service where you can swap, sell, buy or donate your used outdoor gear, so long as it is not a weapon of any description and doesn’t have an engine - www.recycleoutdoorgear.com. ROG also encourages wanted ads so if you are looking for a particular item, put your own free listing on the service. ROG is also working hard to increase awareness and understanding of recycling and reuse outdoor gear initiatives by charities. Take a look at another re-use project which aims 'to assess what practical, functional life a piece of outdoor gear can offer a new owner after the product has had its primary life cycle' - www.explorered.com.
