Sorry for the break in comms. I've been out and about in the high places of the UK, trying to clock up some quality mountain days in winter. If you're considering Winter ML, try not to live in the South West of England...!
Anyway, we've got a full adventure bulletin to cheer up your Wednesday. Plus, we are reopening to contributors for feature-length articles. If you're interested, please send a pitch (with brief outline of what you want to write) to firstname.lastname@example.org
Everyone welcome :)
