Backpacking Columns on TGO Website

My backpacking columns that have appeared in TGO magazine this year are now available on the new TGO website, which is being updated every day. Topics include backpacking and wilderness, wild camping, solo backpacking, long distance backpacking, the Pacific Crest Trail, camping on summits, the pleasures of camp cooking and off-trail hiking. You can find the columns here.

  1. That is very nice of TGO to do, for those of us not located in the UK and who'd like to read your column - Bravo!

    Now I'd just need to know which tent/ shelter that is, and I'd be a happy man!

  2. Hope you enjoy the columns Hendrik.

    The tent is a GoLite Shangri-La 3, which I like in winter because of all the space. I don't use an inner tent, just a groundsheet.

  3. The website is looking good, the video of your favorite gear is great always good to see what others choose. I think most of us will have favorite items which we use even though lighter and newer gear is out there. Keep up the good work!
