|Receiving an award from The Great Outdoors editor Emily Rodway|
Last Wednesday The Great Outdoor Awards were held at the excellent Burgundy's Wine Bar and Brewhouse in Kendal. I was there for The Great Outdoors as one of the judges of the Gear Awards and also as a nominee in a couple of the reader nominated categories. I was Highly Commended (that is, second) in two of these - for Out There in the outdoor book category and for Personality of the Year. Thanks to everyone who voted for me
All the winners can be found here.
Here's a few pictures from a very enjoyable event.
