To celebrate Julia’s new series, Best Walks with a View, and the accompanying book, Unforgettable Walks, TOG teamed up with Camping World for a fantastic competition. To enter we asked for a photo of something that is in your rucksack when out on a walk. We had some great entries which were fun to choose from!
The lucky winner will receive a £500 Camping World gift voucher to spend online. And if that isn’t enough, Outwell are also giving our winner over £500 worth of camping gear including a day shelter and gas BBQ.

And the winner is…

Tilly in the Rucksack

Gina Says

“I am so excited to be the winner of your competition!  When I saw the email this morning, I thought there’s no way it could be me!  My husband Phil has mentally already spent the £500 and Tilly doglet was very chuffed too!  

She was so funny that day, we’d walked up to Stickle Tarn, and ate our lunch protected from the wind behind the wall.  I think she might have got a bit cold (and tired – well she is 12!) and she did try to walk down, but just stopped and looked at me, and I said ‘Uh oh, she needs carrying’!  Not something we ever do! So we tried her in the rucksack and she loved it!”

Congratulations Gina, Phil and Tilly from everyone at The Outdoor Guide, Quercus, Outwell and Camping World.
