Outdoorsy, hike and bike mountain types are fiercely loyal people when it comes to brands. Believe me, teeny weeny technical differences can mean the world at the top of a snow-capped mountain, under the humid canopy of a jungle or in the arid heat of a desert. Some things I write about for no other reason than pure adoration and true love.
For instance, my Specialised mountain bike has a brain bigger than mine which makes adjustments and takes the knocks for my arthritic spine. I’m a big fan of Icebreaker because I can wear it for days on the trails without getting stinky and I’m rarely seen without my Buff.
That’s enough name dropping for now. Unless Richard Branson is reading because I’d love to write a sponsored post about space travel.
So what about the free stuff then?

For me, after being nipped on the ass while taking a squat pee in the Amazon Jungle – stay with me – I wrote a review on Female Urination Devices (FUDs) which mean women can pee standing up like men. Some people score luxury stays at five star hotels. I scored a free FUD. Whopee. I love my Whiz freedom and I don’t mind shouting it from the mountain tops where there are no toilets.
