…not just tents…a camping equipment blog too!

Recently Jez Ainsworth from outdoor gear brand Jack Wolfskin popped into our retail outlet in Warrington (238-240 Manchester Road, WA1 3BE) to tell us about some of the features in our current Jack Wolfskin range.

Jack Wolfskin has been part of our family for around 12 months, and the team here at CheapTents are really impressed by what we have seen throughout their outdoors range, whether it being little things such as paw print branding on zips to larger things such as the quality of their fabrics, Jack Wolfskin is a brand which will continue to grow in the U.K.

It was back in September 2011 that we last interviewed Alastair Humphreys about his adventures large and micro. At the time Alastair was part way through his year of Microadventures. The concept of a microadventure being that it is an adventure close to home that is cheap, easy to organise and most of all, fun!

In all my corporate talks I was aware that nobody in the room would ever set off to spend 4 years on an expedition. Yet I felt that the spirit and the benefits of adventures in wild places were important for everyone, perhaps even more so for people who have not done much in the great outdoors before.

Yesterday (30th April) saw the beginning of Dave Cornthwaite‘s eighth adventure in his twenty five Expedition 1000 challenges. For each of his challenges Dave is using non-motorised transport to travel at least 1000 miles. In this latest adventure, called the GO trek Dave Cornthwaite and Squash Falconer will be travelling 3000 miles on ElliptiGO running bikes. This will be a record breaking distance for travelling on ElliptiGOs! During this adventure Dave and Squash will be encouraging people to take exercise and “Say Yes More!” They are also raising money for CoppaFeel, the charity promoting early detection of breast cancer. You can find out more about the GO trek on Dave’s website.
