Flights are now booked for my ‘Pipe Dream’ trip to Afghanistan’s Wakhan corridor. At the end of July 3 of us will be heading by Train, Plane, Bus, Taxi, 4WD, Yak and Foot to the upper Waghjir Valley to climb something few westerners have ever seen and I’ll be taking my PipeDream 800 with me.
Lots of people love traveling, I certainly do, but nowhere near as much as I’d like. Finding the time or excuse can be hard. Then there are others that make it their life. The Osmosno Brothers contacted us because they liked who we were and what we did, they didn’t really want anything other than to tell us what they were up to. Their up coming trip was set, single speed, fixed wheel, minimum gear from Singapore to Shanghai. Another 5 months, another 7 thousand kilometres.

Back in February Moragh was planning an extended trip travelling around the USA and was concerned that many nights spent on hard hotel beds would be uncomfortable for her. As she sleeps curled up on her side she gets sore hips and shoulders on a hard mattress. To be honest it is a use we had never thought of. The size and weight of the Wee Airics enabled her to keep within the strict baggage limits of the airlines.
Rich and Sarah spent 9 months cycling through South America. A year is not only a long time to spend in the saddle, it is also a long time to spend in a sleeping bag which is why we were happy that she chose our PipeDream sleeping bag for the trip.
Judy Armstrong has been testing some of our carbon fibre trekking poles in preparation for her marathon Trans-Alpine trek Alpine Challenge.
The Vassalopet is the longest and largest cross country ski race in the world. Not a place to be caught with the wrong kit so Ed took along a Fantom down jacket, Wee Airic sleeping mat and a MytiMug for his hot tea.
