Our upside down times... By Geoff Murray

March 23, 2020 2 min read

In these times of uncertainty and turmoil, the Wilderness still sits in the background. Quiet, boisterous, peaceful, serene, feisty and magnificent. It’s many moods continue. It doesn’t know about a virus, or the stock market, or any of our other problems (apart from Climate Change). It is still a fabulous place to escape to and just be there.

With that in mind, the Mont Shop Fyshwick will be open normal business hours if you need gear for your social distancing adventure.

What’s the difference between Trail Running Shoes & Road running shoes?

What’s the difference between Trail Running Shoes & Road running shoes?

February 11, 2020 1 min read

All your friends have gotten into this trail running thing, telling you about this awesome mountain they ran up and then raced back down, the wildlife they saw and how they almost had to do a number 2.

I was looking forward to my next walk. A last visit to the Walls of Jerusalem before all of winter’s snows melted. The forecast was promising, with more snow due to settle over the weekend. I had all my cold weather gear packed, snowshoes, Mont Spindrift sleeping bag, Mont Icicle down jacket, Mont Epoch tent etc. Then, a last minute check of the forecast the night before and it all fell in a heap. The snow forecast had turned into 2 days of steady rain..... Time for an alternative.
