TGO Award for The Backpacker's Handbook

The first TGO Awards were announced two days ago and I am very pleased that TGO readers have voted The Backpacker's Handbook as their Book of the Year. Thank you every one who voted for me.

The Awards ceremony was held in the very nice Burgundys Wine Bar in Kendal, which has some excellent real ales (there's a micro brewery attached to it) and was a great place to chat to the many people from the outdoor industry who attended. A great evening in fact.

Below is the official press release with a list of all the winners.


  1. Was a pleasure to meet you in person at long last, Chris. Well done. It was a top evening.

  2. Well done, Chris, and good luck with your high level project, as well as the Cairngorms one.
