It is about to begin. In the next week or so Knife Edge Outdoor's first book will go on sale: The Tour of the Ecrins National Park. A lot of blood, sweat and tears has gone into it. And now it will be born into the world.
Will anyone buy it? I don't know. I certainly hope so. We are passionate about the trek and hopefully it will show. What I can be sure about, however, is that anyone who walks that trek will be blown away. It is without doubt the finest trek that you have never heard of!
In any case, it's too late to worry. And frankly, I expect that you are not too interested in how many yoga sessions I need to de-stress.
What I think you might be interested in though, is what we have got coming. I can't give too much away but I can tell you that the Tour du Mont Blanc will be our second book. It is being printed as we speak and will be on sale at the end of March.
I can also tell you that we have plenty of other exciting books in production for this year so watch this space. We also have a busy summer of impossibly hard work scheduled: the arduous task of having to trek some of the world's finest trails and write about them! We want to bring those treks to you. And we want to present them to you in a user friendly and colourful way. And we will I promise you.
The winter, however, is when we do a lot of our inside work. Boo. As the walking season develops though, I promise you that this blog will become much more interesting. I will write about what I see and hear in the mountains: trails, peaks, lakes, valleys, sun, rain, snow and, of course, the people I meet. I hope you will enjoy it with me.
The summer is coming......
