Hopefully some of you will remember me from an article I wrote for BPL about crossing Iceland on foot and packraft (http://www.backpackinglight.com/cgi-bin/backpackinglight/iceland_packraft.html). Thanks for all the positive comments!
Anyway, what I have been working on this year is the idea of 'microadventures' - tiny little trips that anyone has the time, expertise or money to do, but which still get people out into the wild and challenge them.
I'm posting today to point out to BPL readers that I have teamed up with a great company called howies here in the UK and we have launched a competition. You can win £1000 of clothing and all you need to do is pack your rucksacks and go on a microadventure. A win-win situation!

Good Luck and Thanks!
