I live and work in Holland, and in my free time I have passion for everything to do with the outdoors. I have travelled to many countries in all sorts of weather to enjoy the freedom and space being in the middle of nowhere. I have respect for anyone who puts their boots on and ventures into the mountains.
I live in Romiley, which is located just outside of the Peak District, where you will find me most weekends either with my dogs or going Solo over Kinder Scout.
In my spare time I am an Instructor for the Ultimate Navigation School, which enables me to help people to enhance their navigational expertise whilst venturing into the great outdoors in addition to supporting the 4 great charities detailed below.
The Ultimate Navigation School.co.uk is a charity registered in Scotland (SCIO SC04864).
Our main contribution to conservation is that ALL of our net profit goes to these four charities, which look after and maintain the hills we all love.
● Fix the Fells (run by the National Trust) is a group of volunteers who repair paths in the Lake District, probably the heaviest use area in the UK – understandably it is voted the UK’s most beautiful location.
● Mend our Mountains from the BMC (UK Climb) aims to fix erosion in eight of our National Parks and the paths up to some of our most iconic mountains.
● The John Muir Trust repairs erosion and maintains the Scottish Highlands.
● The Mountain Bothy Association is a small charity that maintains the fantastic little bothy’s and cabins we all enjoy seeing and overnighting in amongst the hills.
Thanks for your kind support
