When my box of goodies arrived from http://www.backpackinglight.co.uk last week not only had they included a mini pack of jelly babies but they had slipped in a cd-rom containing highlights of some recent podcasts from http://www.theoutdoorsstation.co.uk

I had noticed on the website that there were podcasts available to download but had never got round to doing so. So on a wet and quiet afternoon in Kinlochleven I have popped the cd into my laptop at work and listened to the first part of their report from the Cape Wrath Trail. It is impressively professional with a good mixture of chat, scene setting, gear review and interview as they travel along the first part of the trail. I shall certainly be downloading other podcasts from the website, so that I can listen to them. They will be perfect on those long-haul flights to southern and eastern Africa.
