Welcome to AntnzVentures

Hey everyone. Welcome to the AntnzVentures page. I'll be blogging, adding trip albums & reports and talking about adaptive outdoors & fitness tricks and tips to enable people to make the most of what they've got.Please bear with me as I develop this site, making and maintaining a website is new to me so I may stumble along at times (which sounds a bit like my walking to be honest! Haha) but I'll figure it out as I go and if you've got any ideas or things you'd like to see please let me know, either through comments or drop me an email (see the "Contact Details" link).Looking forward to seeing this develop and thanks for all those that have supported and encouraged me in my slightly crazy endeavors!Antnz
