Blog Rules!

Being a new blog, we thought it best to add a few rules to keep you pesky spammers in check!  We also thought it would be nice to have a couple of positive rules to keep the blog a nice place to keep returning to!

Everyone is welcome to contribute to the blog, just make sure that you follow these simple rules…


  1. Be polite to others and always thank people for good advice
  2. Contribute ideas, suggestions for blog posts and opinions on topics as much as you like
  3. Provide outdoor gear reviews of something that you have bought or used
  4. Feel free to submit pictures of you via email along with any stories, etc
  5. Enjoy the great outdoors as much as possible!


  1. Spam – don’t do it.  All posts will be moderated before posting so don’t waste your time!
  2. Give out your address or phone number or any other personal details
  3. Use inappropriate language, no swearing, slander, etc. etc.
  4. Be rude or horrible to others who comment on the blog
