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.)

Vast is a new European freeride film shot in some awesome European locations.

The Impossible Project

A group of people based in the Netherlands have got hold of an old Polaroid factory and plan to start producing a new type of polaroid film in 2010. 

They're calling it The Impossible Project - in reference to a quote by instant photography pioneer Edwin Land... 

'Don't undertake a project unless it is manifestly important and nearly impossible.'

Check it out, I hope they succeed!

in line with the winter catalogue's theme of living off the land, i thought i'd recommend a film to you guys.

INTO THE WILD

http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=wVOUJf_ONzc[/youtube]

summary (from imdb): Based on a true story. After graduating from Emory University in 1992, top student and athlete Christopher McCandless abandoned his possessions, gave his entire $24,000 savings account to charity and hitchhiked to Alaska to live in the wilderness. Along the way, Christopher encounters a series of characters who shape his life.

amazing direction from sean penn, an excellent performance from emile hirsch and potrayals of characters so good it makes me wish i'd met them too, earned this film a solid 9 out of 10 from me. and i'm pretty picky about where i put my 9's these days.

if you've seen it before, let us know what you thought. if not, do it! it's amazing and inspiring.

carnaby street loves you, from jeff
