Review

What a really excellent 2 weeks I have had.

The more the world seems to be descending into madness. I seem to be getting more chilled, more relaxed, yet more focussed.

I put this down to the confidence I have in my diet, my health and my fitness. It gives you a fearless attitude, well compared to the general public anyway.

The purchase of my Ultimate Direction Fastpack 35 is going to take me down an alley of minimalist fastpacking (combo of running, hiking and wild camping), which ironically is not vey minimalist on the back pocket haha, well not to begin with anyway.

It baffles me when people have no hobbies, I have the opposite problem, I can’t keep a hobby long enough to get good at them, before moving onto something else. Whoops.
