Dales Outdoor Weekend/Backpacker's Club
On the weekend of May 7 and 8 the Backpacker's Club AGM and Dales Outdoor Weekend ihttp://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gifs taking place in Stanhope, Country Durham. The event will have lightweight equipment displays and a book fair at which I'll be signing copies of my Scotland book.http://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gif I went to the last big Backpackers Club event like this held in Bellingham in Northumberland in 2007 and it was a really enjoyable weekend. Like Bellingham Stanhope is in a lovely area with plenty of opportunties for walks and cycle rides - an ideal place for an outdoor event rather than the urban exhibition halls in which they are too often held. This is a great opportunity to meet like-minded people and look at interesting gear and visit some lovely countryside. I hope to meet many of you there.
