Boy, do I love an adventure. Whether that be a cycle ride across the South of France, a 24-hour race or getting lost on the trails, it’s the sense of entering the unknown that does it for me and the challenge of being able to finish the situation that I’ve (on more occasions than one) thrown myself into? It seems no matter how much you prepare for something, you’ll always be surprised by the journey.
But when you live in a world, where you’ve got a mortgage, career and relationship, it can be difficult to balance out this thirst for adventure with the daily grind. I wouldn’t want to become a full-time adventurer, I enjoy my life as it stands, there’s just a part of me that cries out for a break from the norm once in a while.
That’s why I’m super-keen to get involved with #epicLED Winter Adventure campaign. As well as promoting LED Lenser’s latest range of head lamps – the SEO and NEO (the SEO is amazing as I found out during the Spitfire Scramble), adventurers and adrenaline junkies are being offered the chance to win a week’s holiday in the beautiful Austrian Alps, a bunch of Berghaus stuff and LED Lenser head lamps.
And here comes the icing on the cake for all city dwellers wanting to escape to the mountains: you’ll have the opportunity to see the glorious Alps at night as the prize includes a night walk on the snowy plains after dark. Exciting? Not half. Epic? Definitely.
You’ll get to see a snow-covered version of the picture above lit up by the powerful LED Lenser head lamps (they’re really useful on the trails). This really is a once in a lifetime opportunity.
All you have to do is upload a picture of you taking place in an adventure to the gallery here, then share it on Twitter or Instagram #epicLED or on Facebook including the #epicLED to be in with a chance of winning this epic prize. You can find out more details about the LED Lenser epic adventure challenge here.
So what are you waiting for? As they say, you’ve got to be in it to win it. Now I’ve got to try and dig out the photos of my best adventures so wish me luck.
