Tomorrow's Heroes

Where are tomorrow's heroes?

They're not at home watching today's heroes on the TV.

They're not dreaming of luck in the queue for lottery tickets.

They're not waiting for anyone to give them a break.

They're out there right now doing what they love.

We don't know their names, we don't know their stories.

Yet.

Give us a glimpse of your adventure

The chatter in the office suggests most of us are planning adventures over the holidays.

There's talk of trail running up Cader Idris, mountain biking in the Dales, road rides over the Preseli Hills, surfing (if we're given the gift of waves) and New Year swims for the hardy.

Next year we'd like to build a short movie of these adventures and it would be great if you could get involved.

If you send us a 30 second(ish) video, a great picture or a map of your adventure by 14th January*, we'll select the best ones and they'll be put in the movie and featured on the blog.

Everyone who gets their adventure featured in the video will win a t-shirt specially designed for the event.

How To Enter

*To enter, email your video to us at info@howies.co.uk, upload your entry to our Facebook page or tweet us @howies.

Competition closes 14th January 2013, judges decisions are final, your photos and videos may be used on the howies site but you will be notified and credited. (We think it's important to be open and up front about that stuff.)

Summer. Ends Saturday.

Cook outside on a fire. Even just a tin of beans heated over a blaze in the garden will feel like an adventure.

Every shop is showing their latest Autumn ranges, howies included. We are all talking about the Autumnal weather (there are even chocolate Santas for sale in the supermarket). It's like we're willing summer to be over already.

But until Saturday, it's still here, so you have five whole days and nights left to make the most of it.

You could:

1. Swim in the sea. It's probably the warmest it's going get this year, so get in.

2. Wear shorts or a skirt all week.

3. Sit in the sun on the grass and eat your lunch.

4. Cook outside on a fire. Even just a tin of beans heated over a blaze in the garden will feel like an adventure.

5. Go camping. Why have 5 star accommodation when you can have billions.

6. Run somewhere at sunrise or sunset (Late summer always has THE best light).

7. Leave work early to ride the long way home with no lights on (pretty soon you won't be able to ride home without them).

8. Get to a forest before the leaves fall. The trails will be great.

We hope that gives you a few ideas. Do something everyday to push back autumn and let us know what adventures you have.
