Critical items you ‘Need’ to Survive an Adventure,  My Blog


Footwear is the most important item on your kit list… Socks

The essential but often ignored Socks can make or break your adventure. A suitable pair of socks are a must have for any hiker, runner, climber or outdoor enthusiast.

Over many years and on many adventures, inc. Everest BC and Mt Kilimanjaro, I discovered that 1000 Mile Socks are so comfortable, durable and cool; they feel like I’m walking on a luxurious, deep pile carpet. Importantly they really help to protect my feet and prevent blisters so I truly enjoy my days on the trail.  

My, not so secret, few basic Tips, for Healthy Feet       

· Check your feet regularly 
· Wash your feet every day, dry them well, especially between your toes
· Avoid dry & cracking by moisturising regularly
· Train in the socks you intend to wear…..
· Wear suitable socks and change them as often as possible – daily is more

· Trim your toenails; Lads, a pedicure is cool but a paint job is questionable!
