About Us

We are a cobbled together family of six. With four small children in tow, what choice do you have (unless affluent enough to afford nannies and all-in holidays) but to embrace camping wholeheartedly? Fortunately for us, we were donated a tent – an Aztec Palacio 6 – by some kind friends, and the adventure began.

Being cobbled together as we are, when the children visit their father we are endowed with an abundance of free time, which we have chosen to use for our own rather more untamed expeditions into the wild. Armed with our rather less palatial tent – a Coleman Novae X2 – and our ultralite gear, this summer we hit the Pennines on our virgin voyage.

Tales of our trips into the wild, en famille in our palatial tent and a deux armed with just backpacks, we will be reviewing the gear we use on our travels, the walks we follow and the sites we visit. Here you will find the stories of our adventures and accounts of what worked for us and what didn’t, reviews of the equipment we used and our perspective on the whole outdoors experience. You will find blue reviews (by himself) and pink reviews (by herself) providing a gender slant on the whole shebang.

We hope you find our blog informative and entertaining.
