February Microadventure

February’s microadventure would take us to the coast, for our 1st taste of seaside sleeping. We made the 90 minute journey down to Poole, then on to the sandbanks chain ferry, which in just a few short minutes takes you away from the glamour of sandbanks into the wilds of coastal Dorset. We had thought… Read more »

Planning your Microadventure

Why Plan? – Planning in some form comes in handy, it reduces your chance of finding the most uncomfortable, waterlogged and exposed location whilst out in the great outdoors (or perhaps in this case the not so great outdoors) Most of my microadventures to date have been planned to some degree, sometimes is a very… Read more »

January’s Microadventure

Wow.. a whole year has gone by, summer is a distant memory and its time to get out and spend a night on a hill. We thought it would be fun to head back to last Januarys location, a hill side which isn’t too far from a pub. Mark wasn’t able to make this one,… Read more »

Looking back at my year of Microadventure!

This is a reflective look back at the last 12 months, I will try my upmost not to get too deeply reflective on it all, but forgive me if I do.. When I started this year I was a very different person in many ways. Having a young family you pump yourself into family life, which… Read more »

Decathlon X-Light Down Jacket Review

      It’s fair to say I have a problem.. I have a jacket collection problem. I love them and have way too many! The latest addition to the collection was the budget £29.99 X-Light Down Jacket from Decathlon. I was looking for some time for a light weight down jacket as my only other… Read more »

November’s Microadventure

They say the hardest part of doing a microadventure is getting out of the house, and on a chilly wet and windy November night we were tested.. It would have been so easy to knock it on the head. We didn’t…. Instead we made the decision to get the bikes loaded up again and head… Read more »
