Over the past ten years, he has been gradually turning his attention to steeper and steeper terrain, and has extensive knowledge of mountain walking and scrambling throughout the UK. Simon is now working towards his mountain leader qualification.

    Simon has completed many multi day treks in central Asia and the foothills of the Hindu Kush, but admits it can a little dangerous at times: "I once found myself in an uncharted minefield in central Asia, which required a very careful retracing of my route!"

    Favourite Destination:

    Wales, UK. "My favourite destination for walking is, and always has been Wales. The scenery of north wales and the more challenging aspects of the beacons. "

    Walking & Climbing Expert

    Store: MILTON KEYNES TREK

    With a 4 year degree in Adventure Education and all the training needed for her summer Mountain Leader certification, Jade Dicerbo is more than qualified as a walking and climbing expert.

    Jade has only a few more days needed to log for both her Gold Duke of Edinburgh Award and her ML assessment, so has all the experience you could wish for when seeking advice for mountain gear.

    Jade truly understands the value of a well-fitted walking boot after a mishap on her Duke of Edinburgh expedition: "I once lost a walking boot in a bog and had to walk to the next campsite with one shoe on! My Top tip? Make sure you get your boots fitted properly!"

    Favourite Destination:

    Wales, UK. "I love going on expeditions around the UK especially Scotland. It's so, so beautiful and has so many great areas to explore. Wales is also a personal favourite, having completed ML training in Snowdonia, I’ll always enjoy trekking around there. "
