Welcome to Bark & Spark!

This blog is a collection of thoughts and ideas about my long life quest to see parts of the world that require stepping (or pedalling!) off the ‘beaten path’.

About Page for an introduction about me. About Tesla, the Border Collie. Links. Other things I like. My work.

Adventures page – where I’ve been, what I think you should check out, tips on how to do it

Packing List– my kit! Gear that is compact – allowing adventures to be more fun, agile, comfortable and have the ability to go to places heavily loaded up cyclists, hikers, 4WDers might not be able to get to

There are also blogs on my brain spews on a whole range of guides on preparing for adventures,  training for those harder longer ones, hiking or bikepacking with dogs, reviews on gear, food ideas, vehicle recovery in the bush  – what ever I think of!

So Welcome! Vamos!
