MyOutdoors Managing Editor Dave Mycroft has a long and distinguished history in the industry having worked with some of the biggest names in the business including previously being Routes Editor at OutdoorsMagic, Consultant for the British Army Everest West Ridge Expedition, Content Manager at Webtogs and GPS specialist for computer and handheld magazines.
Andrew White caught up with Dave to find out more about the site and to discuss the current outdoor world in the UK.
We don't tend to think about the paths we walk on unless there's a problem with them, so this insight to the repairing of footpaths in the Swaledale area of the Yorkshire Dales from Area Ranger Michael Biggs is most interesting.

As one of the speakers at this years' Keswick Mountain Festival, we caught up with Monty Halls between dashing out to film another television series and darting out on the boat showing more people the exquisite South West coast!
Monty is already an established presenter, marine biologist, travel writer, public speaker and diver, but his latest venture is Great Escapes, which conducts courses and trips out of his shop in Dartmouth.
