I’ve been with OS for 3 years. I lead an incredible team in the development of OS Maps.
I’m a discovery ramble kind of girl, my husband often accuses me of tricking him into coming along and not providing sufficient snacks, so if there’s a hearty pub lunch at the end of our adventure all the better.
I’m all about having outdoor fun rather than the hardcore hike.
I’m part of the amazing outdoor adventure girl’s community. It’s a great balance of activities, challenge & social connection, but long term, I’d love to get strong enough to boss the 3 peaks challenge. I’d love to have the bragging rights and have Adventure Patches sewn on my bag.
I think walking poles should be an essential part of anyone’s kit.
I resisted taking poles with me for a long time, now I can’t imagine going without them.
Whether you’re going for a casual walk or a peak hike, they make such a difference to your comfort.
Folded they’re easy to carry and you can just pop them out for a little extra stability anytime you need it. Plus, in the winter they’re handy for helping you pull your foot out of the mud with the shoe still on it!
