Osprey Europe

I’m a huge fan of Osprey Packs. They have served me well over many years. I have been recommending their Atmos 35 rucksack and Talon Lumbar packs for a long time.
Most recently I have been using, and recommending, their Stratos 34 rucksack and Talon 6 lumbar pack, both of which have been faultless.
A heartfelt Thank You to Vicky Swyer for her unwavering help and generosity.

What Digital Camera BEST ONLINE RETAILER 3yrs running!

Our unashamed thanks to Peter at PicStop for their generous donation of spare Batteries and Memory Cards for our cameras. Dave contacted them to order some and asked if they could delivery them very quickly; he got in to a conversation as to why and the guys at PicStop thought our endeavour was great and offered to supply them to us for the trip by way of sponsorship! They have also kindly included links from their website to here.
What a great bunch. Thank Guys, very much appreciated.
