  • 12/10/16--12:54: 4: Orienteering
  • Project BaseCamp, for us, is all about finding a balance between work and play (or family adventure time as we call it); looking for opportunities to get outside and enjoy the outdoors. This week we wanted to look for an activity to try in our local area, and one that Amy and Ella could invite a friend each along to enjoy.

  • 01/08/17--11:04: 5. Scooter Safari
  • It’s been a while since we last got the scooters out, so this adventure was one we were all looking forward to. What made this scooter safari extra exciting was that Amy and Ella were bringing a friend each along to join in.

    Ella woke us up early this morning for an adventure; not the usual bleary-eyed girl we see during the week but one with a sparkle in her eyes as she was keen to get us up early in order to set off into the Peak District for a walk. We all wanted to blow the cobwebs away after the mundane work week and were all looking forward to spending time outdoors.

    As a family that love to spend time in the outdoors we're always looking for places, new and old, to visit and activities to do. So on a recent trip to North Wales we went in search of an fun-filled, action-packed weekend. Here are five ways we made it outdoorsy.

  • 05/19/17--11:34: 8. Cycling
  • Our latest basecamp family adventure was cycling in the forest. Road cycling has never appealed as much since we like to appreciate the environment and escape into nature plus there are no vehicles to content with....only pedestrians and the odd tree root! We love cycling because it is something that we can all do together, some maybe slower or faster than others.

  • 06/29/17--03:44: Pump up the Fun
  • 3, 2, 1 GO!! The crowd cheered as another group crossed the start line. We were amongst them, a family of 4, surrounded by men, women and children of all ages and sizes, dressed in lycra, tutus and tiger suits. Ahead of us loomed the first obstacle – a rubber inflated mountain that we needed to climb up and slide down the other side. This was the first of many because unlike any other race we'd entered this was a 5k inflatable!

    41,413 pieces of plastic litter picked up to date! We're aiming to pick up 100,000 plastic bottles, lids, cups, straws (and microplastics) from all around the globe - beaches, forests, road-sides, anywhere we find them. Along with others who wish to help us reach our total, and do their bit for the planet, we're making progress - all of which is recorded in this blog post.

    It was with excitement and anticipation that we parked-up by the side of an idyllically located sailing lake ready to sail, windsurf and of course, camp.

    Adventure doesn't have to stop when you have kids. It might just have to be a little different!

    Stealing Ideas We are avid magpies – stealing ideas from other adventurers and making them our own. All of us seek inspiration and we have many inspiring adventurers that we turn to for ideas, e.g. Alistair Humphreys, Dave Cornthwaite, Sean Conway and Anna McNuff to name but a few. The problem is that these hard-core […]

    Part of being a parent involves making sacrifices. Life changes after children and some people embrace it better than others. We weren’t particularly adventurous before we had children but when the girls arrived we wanted them to have an adventurous mindset and a love of the outdoors and nature so from an early age we […]

  • 10/16/17--14:24: Rambling to raise awareness
  • Last weekend (Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th October) were the official days for the BBC Countryfile Ramble for Children in Need – a charity event that encouraged us to get outside and walk in the autumnal countryside. Nationwide, groups of people donned their yellow woolly hats and took to the trails.

    We’ve been a family who love the outdoors for a few years now, and we are constantly striving to spend as much time together outside as we can, regardless of the time of year, season or weather. Why? Well.....

  • 11/12/17--15:16: Children in Need Pop up cafe
  • Blacks are sponsoring Children in Need this year and this is a charity that we regularly support and try to fundraise for. Therefore it made sense as Blacks family ambassadors that we don our Pudsey hats and head for the hills for some fresh air and fundraising.

  • 12/17/17--13:30: Gotta Get-away #hiberNAY
  • Escaping bricks and mortar (if only for one night) Since our return to normality (boo), we’ve spent way too much time indoors. OK, we’ve been getting out as much as we can – cycling and running Kms towards our self-imposed challenge for this year, the Triathlon 2017 ,but one thing we’ve all been craving for […]
