The Do Lectures

For me the Do Lectures hasn’t just broken the conference mould. It’s turned it outside in. Diverse, inclusive, unbranded, organic, fluid, honest. Soon after my arrival I realised as a participant that this is not just a ride. It’s not something people are paying to see. This is an investment in yourself and others. A […]

How To Make A Mini Stove

I really must get round to making one of these. A great way of recycling as well. I’m packing the @Bongomentally for a trip to @Geeknbury at the moment. Would be a great place to try out stuff like this. The smallest stove I have had so far is the…

This is part five of our trip. Part one is here: into-knoydart-part-1  Part two is here: into-knoydart-part-2 Part four […]

Home Is Where The Tech Is

I have always had to have some kind of tech with me when in the outdoors. Even if it is a compass or a fancy multi-tool. It’s more than just being prepared. I could live without it but it goes a hell of a long way to making any trip or adventure more ‘comfortable’. In […]

Wilderness 2.0

Monday morning for me this week will start at 4am as i rise, wash and head over to my friends for 5am, the official start of our trip into the wilderness. We will drive nearly 500 miles north into Scotland to Mallaig. From there we hope to be in time for the ferry over to […]

Portable Solar Power

Yesterday I picked up a little solar panel and charge regulator contained in a handy little flight case. I love it so far. I have been testing it with the Mac Book Air and it all works splendidly. I am looking forward to testing it further at the Larmer Tree Festival and of course my […]

The Geeknbury Festival 2008

Let’s make The Geeknbury Festival 2008 happen!! On the 24th to the 27th of July I will be in a field near Hambledon in Surrey whether you guys want to join in or not. I will most likely have a T-shirt on saying ‘Geeknbury 2008′ and although I don’t know exactly how many people are […]
