This month is an oportunity to talk about adventure – Jonathan and Mark get a chance to talk with Jimmy McSparron (also known as trekkingnut) about his life as an adventurer in Peru, the Andes, and all over the world. A Fellow of the Royal Geographic Society and operator of TrekkingNut Expeditions, Jimmy has visited over 31 countries and is the brand ambassador for Hennessy Hammock and Craghoppers. Listen as we hear about some of his experiences in the wild, and how he leads a life of adventure in the wild.

After our chat with Jimmy, Jonathan and Mark talk about some hammock camping “Life Hacks” and how they make our life a little better in surprising ways. Send your ideas to for the opportunity to be featured on a future episode!
