About Us



I’m Charlie – unlike a lot of bloggers I’m not fashionable. I don’t travel to the most exotic places in the world everyday and I’m a hard working on the road Brands Manager. What I love is the great outdoors.

Life is fast paced and full of excitement, challenges and most importantly for me, opportunity. I say make the most of it and enjoy every moment surrounded by the people you love.

Based in Yorkshire with the love of my life, Laura and our new son, the most amazing wee boy, Archie. We spend more time in the car travelling, seeing friends, fishing, shooting, heading up hills, going for walks, enjoying local food and just having a good time living life.

During the day I work within the footwear industry specialising in wellington brands… random I know, however it allows me to work with great people from brands such as Hunter, Muck Boots, Le Chameau, Aigle, Musto, Schoffel etc. etc. It’s a fast and busy life but I’m surrounded by great people in a family run business that has been going since 1863 and one of the largest footwear companies in Europe specialising in wholesale, manufacturing, consulting and direct fulfilment.

This is what I do, however, it is not necessarily who I am.

I have moments when I’m sitting on a mountain top in Scotland or walking the dogs in a cracking sunset, where I just drift off dreaming of the things I want to do everyday, rather than the things I have to do everyday. However sadly, I like many, am not in a position that I can do without work. I am very lucky to have what I have, and be able to do what I do.

Everyday is different for us and with this brings stories, adventure, travel and hopefully some great fun along the way which I hope you enjoy.
