Review: Inov-8 Roclite 390GTX #3 (Final)

This is the third and final review of my Inov-8 Roclite 390 GTX boots – I know its the final review because they’ve just about fallen to pieces – they are completely unusable as walking boots. You can read the first two reviews here: Review One and here: Review Two....

Pub choice in Ennerdale Bridge

Just a couple of quick thoughts on where to eat and drink on Ennerdale Bridge for all you future C2Cers; whether you be easters or westers. The Fox & Hounds is my preferred choice for the following reasons….. F&H is now a village co-operative, still leased from the absentee landlord,...

Review: Inov-8 Roclite 390GTX

I’ve been dying to try a pair of these, ever since they were released a year or two ago, but until the kind folk at FitnessFootwear offered to let me have a pair to test I’d not really had the opportunity. Boots aren’t normally something you can try on whim...

Review: Trailblazer Coast to Coast Guide 4th Ed

Just in time for the 2010 walking season (due in mid-April and priced at £11.99) the Trailblazer guide book for the Coast to Coast is about to be released in its 4th Edition. You may remember that after reviewing the 2nd Edition of this guide book I basically said it...

Review: Rucksack Reader Coast to Coast Guide

The Coast to Coast guide book market is never going to be an easy market to penetrate, not only are there several guide books already available for Britain’s premier long distance path, but the benchmark is already very high – set, in my opinion at least, by Henry Stedman’s (Trailblazer)...

Backpackers Deodorant

I have always ummed and ahhed about taking deodorant with me when I backpack – it seems like such a luxury and I’d rather use the weight for something more luxurious to be quite honest – like a nice Scotch in a little hip flask for example. And let’s face...
