Two weeks ago Dom took a look around The National Outdoor Expo to see what was on offer. He ended up getting a bit more (and colder) than he asked for. Check out the full video.
Two weeks ago, the second ever National Outdoor Expo opened its doors to over 20,000 keen outdoor enthusiasts. The show featured tech, kit, advice, inspiration and opportunities to learn more along every single aisle.
Usually, I record podcasts with speakers at the Raccoon Media Group events - you can check out the catalogue of these podcasts by clicking here - but this time I decided to take a bit of time to head round the show and get a bit more involved. Unfortunately, getting 'more involved' meant that I somehow found myself in a pair of shorts dipping myself into an ice bath in the middle of a busy show...

I have been playing all varieties of sports since the age of 5 but in the past few years I have somehow become a 'runner'. This has opened my eyes to a whole new world of adventure, I still love playing team sports and heading to the gym - but managing this website has helped me explore different ways to enjoy the outdoors.
