Get excited for the return of our wonderful community stories! This week, we’ve got a fantastically motivating and possibly relatable story from TSA community member Kylie Duggan. She’s joined us on a ton of adventures (and taken lots of wonderful photos for our community page), but the avid adventurer we know her to be now isn’t necessarily where she started. Have a read of her story to see how she has grown over the last year and a half. Who knows? Maybe her story will inspire you to follow in her footsteps.
Making the jump from day hikes to an overnight hiking adventure can be a bit daunting for some. It can be up to double the length, you have to carry a bit more, need to use a few more pieces of gear… All things that can strike fear and concern in the mind of even experienced day hikers. However, it is one of the most unique and rewarding experiences you can have as an outdoor adventurer, and we are always here to help you get started. Read on for just some of the benefits of overnight hiking.
Another week, another epic story from our brilliant hiking community. This week, we’re travelling with Mel Birch-Inwood to Peru as she walks us (literally!) through her journey on one of the most fantastic multi-day hikes, Machu Picchu. Have a read and discover how hiking allows you to clear your head and spend some valuable time with your own thoughts. It worked a treat for Mel, maybe it will for you too…
We get it. After 3 months of Winter, life can become pretty mundane. You feel cold, wet, and trapped in the cycle of getting up, going to work, coming home, having dinner, TV, bed – repeat. Bleh. Lots of you will book holidays to escape this time of year, so much so that we’ve coined the infamous term “European Summer”. But what if you had a lifestyle that you didn’t need to escape from? Things that made you jump out of bed and get excited, without having to get on a plane and chase the sun to find happiness?
This week we have a selection of stories – and some exciting advice – from our wonderful community member Geoff, as he shares his story of his life of adventure. From Boy Scouts to the base camp of Everest, Geoff has truly been on every adventure possible (probably)! Have a read of his story to see not only the writings of a well-seasoned adventurer, but also some great tips on which local trips to choose, and some inspirational quotes that have motivated Geoff and hopefully you too.
