Welcome

Hello – nice to meet you.

For our first blog post, we thought we’d take the opportunity to introduce our business and provide an overview of the website.

So…a quick story…

Like most families, we felt that we didn’t have the right balance between work and family time. Time was a precious commodity in short supply and spending time together as a family seemed to be the last thing on an ever expanding to do list.

So we thought we would make a change and find a way to support ourselves whilst achieving a better work life balance. Yes, that phrase that many people think about yet is less attainable than climbing Mount Everest. 

Our children had some very good ideas for a business:

  • Create a chocolate factory complete with Oompa Loompas
  • Create a website that does your homework for you
  • Flat-pack dens to install in any bedroom

They all sounded great fun…but not very practical.

So we decided to base something around our passion for camping. Which is something we do a lot of - we’ve even been known to go camping on new year’s eve. After some discussion, we settled on the idea for an online shop that sold camping and bushcraft equipment for children.

Rather than try and sell every outdoor product known to man, we thought we would focus on a range of carefully selected items that we use ourselves and have been tried and tested by us and other families we know. 

And we created this blog (“in the wild”) to help share the ideas and advice we’ve gathered from lots of different sources to help families get more from the great outdoors.

We’d love to know what you think of the website.
