The OS Outdoors Show 2009 was in full swing at the NEC today and there were plenty of OutdoorBloggers forum members there doing the rounds and reporting their findings and opinions. Notable among the roving reporters is John Hee, who didn't take long to start adding details to his blog. Hopefully his reports will fill out with more juicy details when he gets back to base and has time to collate his data.

I'm not attending this year, for a couple of reasons. First up, I was never going to attend as a punter, as I've done that bit three times before and although it's a good way to meet old friends, the day eventually turns into a shopping spree. OK, so there are some good deals to be had, but there's not much that I need. Second, WD's offer of a press-pass came to nothing when all went silent after he took the huff over the way I manage my blog's RSS feeds.

No matter. The weekend's set fair, and I've plenty of outdoors stuff to keep me occupied.

Stay happy  🙂
