FEAT 2016 postponed

Although I had the 8th annual FEAT event scheduled for mid-September, I have had to postpone it.

At this stage I'm not sure whether FEAT will stay annual or go onto an 18-month or 24-month cycle. I know that the Capetonians have been wanting an event down their way, but the Jo'burgers also need their adventure fix...

The silver lining to this dark cloud is that having a gap buys me time to think and to plan and to implement new ideas.

As an adventurer friend, who is also an event organiser, says, "We need to be creative".

Your favourite FEAT event won't be happening this year, but I'll be sure to let you know when my plans are confirmed.

If you're sitting at your desk needing daydream inspiration of a land with rivers, lakes, mountains and volcanoes, delve into my blog posts from my recent trip to Chile in June. I do so love South America and it was a wonderful way to celebrate my 40th birthday.

If you need to get out a bit this month, I am teaching long-awaited navigation courses again in the Vredefort Dome, near my new hometown of Parys. Great preparation for events like Skyrun and The Munga Trail as well as your own expeditions and adventures. Getting lost is so unnecessary.

As always, I keep an ear to the ground, listening out for news of adventurers and their expeditions. You can read about these on the FEAT website and Facebook page.

Sending wishes your way for good health, fitness and many adventures,
