Apologies for not keeping the blog up to date!


There has been plenty going on since our last post....


New season stuff has come into store ready for Spring and Summer....someone just needs to tell the weather! Although as I'm writing this, it looks quite nice out there, especially as the forecast was for drizzle! We are now stocking Ruffwear for the hounds...brilliant stuff, our Robbie and Trish love it!


The Crickhowell Walking Festival has been and gone...again the weather made itself the talk of the week. It was raining for much of the week, but I don't think any of the walks were cancelled, they were modified to some degree depending on the wind and rain. The walkers who came seem to take it all in their stride though (excuse the pun!) and it certainly found out if anyone's kit was up to the job or not! And talking of the walkers, they did themselves proud and they were all ages!


Must also thank Sherpa Adventure Gear for their donation of the knitted hats for the walk leaders and their assistants....super warm and toasty in the dismal weather!


Must also thank Deuter and Scarpa for putting up the prizes and for running workshops for rucksacks and walking boots...any questions you had, they answered...well if it related to the aforementioned of course!! Winning lottery numbers may just be a bit too hard for them!


It will be time to start getting 2018 Walking Festival underway...no rest for the wicked!


In other news....


Off to Bhutan again this year...trekking this time, can't wait More on that closer to the time...


Still going out walking of course....went up the Allt yr Esgair the other week.....it is a beautiful place, exeptionally muddy, but the dogs loved it and the views and the light were amazing....



Walkers of all ages out enjoying themselves!
