  1. Homepage (or Frontpage) is maybe a more correct term:

    Again, thank you for sharing all this great information!

  2. OK, but that is not the current landing page on At the moment it’s a page about cookware. Maybe you should clean out the cache and history in your web browser, and check again? 🙂 Thank you for lots of great information!

    1. The homepage lists the latest blog posts, that’s all… perhaps it’s time to redesign it.

  3. Lots of great information on your site — thank you! 

    But you are in big need of a landing page (start page) with an index. 🙂

    1. Do you mean this? 😉

  4. Thanks for the replies so far, they’ve been really encouraging. It’s interesting to see that ‘more photos’ is currently top of the list. Just when I needed a bit of motivation to get the camera out again…

  5. I find almost all your stuff useful so I wasn’t able to pinpoint one thing to see more of. It’s always good to read what other people are up to as you hatch your own plans!

  6. I initially found your site during your live blogging from the Arctic last winter and was very impressed with the quality of your writing. So i am more interested in the “inspiration” writing of where you have been and how you did it than the kit reviews.

    Hi Tom,

    Thing is, I read your blog on each update as its good how it is! That’s not to say it can’t be improved, I’m sure it can be… however don’t change it, if that makes sense? I find it really difficult to come up with content for my blog, or when I have the content, I don’t have the time to write it… Like now, I’ve been on the road for weeks, I have loads of stories, but not the time to write them up.… 

    Thing’s like “live trip blogs” Whilst I would really love to read them, I haven’t ticked it, because that risks changing why you are travelling. If it’s something you feel happy doing then it should be done, but if its going to change the very nature of the trip for you, then it shouldn’t! 

    Anyway, the only thing I would ask… is an index… I’m in the process of trying to sort my own expedition bike… and it took me a while this morning to find the article you had written… found it now… its bookmarked. 😉



    1. Reuben, thanks for pointing that out — I’ll put an index together right now!

  8. At the moment, because I’m planning my first bike trip, I’m really interested in the advice and equipment reviews. What I’m likely to come back to more and more are your live blog posts from current trips. I really enjoyed reading about your journey to Scandanavia. All good though. Thanks!
