Last weekend myself and Sarah once again made the (now very familiar) journey from Bristol to Dartmoor. Rather than the usual mix of hiking, camping, tor bagging and outdoor swimming (and beer) our trips to Dartmoor usually involved however, this trip was a little different – we were attending a two day course in Outdoor First Aid, run by First Aid 4 Life, at Powdermills near Princetown.

Dartmoor, when she is at her harshest, is particularly good at revealing any shortcomings your kit may have. Over the last few months, hikes and camps in strong winds, cold temperatures and very wet conditions has reveal a number of issues and, with the County Castle Caper starting next month, now seems as good a time as any to review some of my kit.
