Wheeling towards a sustainable circular future

Wheeling towards a sustainable circular future

October’s Meitheal is a glimpse behind the scenes of a business which, like ours, is on a path to a better place.

We caught up with Oli Pepper, co-founder of The Overland and Adventurous Ink subscriber, to hear about the practice and philosophy which underpin their turn towards a more sustainable and circular future.

Finding connection on the foreshore

Finding connection on the foreshore

We caught up with co-founder of Dorset based kayak and foraging specialists Fore/Adventure...

"We’re guides to the outdoors, not instructors coaching technique. When you adopt this softer demeanour people start to disclose things and really open up. They often ask questions, which they then answer themselves."

The foraging photography fiasco

The foraging photography fiasco

Right now, I just needed to get some decent shots in the bag, and head home before my eldest returned from his first day at school.

So little Squidge and I tramped our way through the brambles and pine needles on the hunt for interesting looking mushrooms with a good backdrop...

What could go wrong?!

That sense of loss? Its your superpower

That sense of loss? Its your superpower

In lockdown, we had a glimpse of our own mortality. Not just the fear that shrouded every hang out and door handle, but in the things that we love and hold dear which were whisked away from us in a moment.

We can take this insight and use it to move forwards suggests our founder and curator.

10 ways nature can help you stay healthy and happy during lockdown

10 ways nature can help you stay healthy and happy during lockdown

The pandemic provides an opportunity to hear Mother Nature’s voice as she reminds us “I am everywhere. We are all connected.” This is a great time to connect to the nature you never normally notice.
We need to stop treating the natural world as a weekend retreat. Nature is everywhere, we just need to be better at tapping its benefits.

Some doorstep miles are longer than others

Some doorstep miles are longer than others

A life-affirming, personal reflection on Jennifer's own doorstep mile as she keeps up the her adventures, whilst coping with chronic illness.
"Overwhelming joy replaced fear and worry when I took my last steps up to the peak. I had achieved my goal alongside chronic illness, not despite it."

How to shit in the woods (or the moors, mountains, seashore etc)

How to shit in the woods (or the moors, mountains, seashore etc)

We try not to over-do the poo-puns whilst dealing with topic that puts many people off wild camping, with Tirio Packrafting founder Jason Taylor.
It turns out the most essential kit for wild camping isn't sold in outdoor stores, you're much more likely to find it at your local garden centre...

Ambassador Sean King on a life changing race across Europe

Ambassador Sean king takes on the Transcontinental Race TCRNo7 - the definitive self-supported bicycle route across Europe. A beautifully hard bicycle race, simple in design but complex in execution. Did we mention it covers 4000km across the wilds of Europe?
