What you think about all things out­doors

MY NAME IS JEMI HUGGETT. I am 15 years old and from the South­ern High­lands in New South Wales.

I am in­spired by the ar­ti­cles I read in Aus­tralian Ge­o­graphic Out­door mag­a­zine. I first started trekking whilst on a week long school camp. I came away pas­sion­ate about the out­doors and con­nect­ing with na­ture. Since then, I have been on a 12-day hik­ing ex­pe­di­tion and re­ceived a sub­scrip­tion to your mag­a­zine for my birthday. I love go­ing with my fam­ily and friends to ex­plore lo­cal tracks and bush walks use the trails to train for my longer hik­ing trips. I am cur­rently plan­ning my next big ad­ven­ture…I will be turn­ing 16 whilst on a 21 day course in New Zealand! It will be my first time trekking in­ter­na­tion­ally and AG Out­door mag­a­zine has pro­vided me with so many help­ful tips and prod­uct sug­ges­tions as I am pre­par­ing. I aim to be­come an out­door ed­u­ca­tor when I fin­ish school. I love to share my pas­sion for the out­doors and en­cour­age oth­ers around me to ex­pe­ri­ence the beauty of the nat­u­ral world and ap­pre­ci­ate what is around them.

Thanks for all the tips and tricks! Jemi Huggett, NSW

AL­WAYS IN­SPIR­ING

Sub­scrib­ing to your mag­a­zine has opened my eyes to all new sorts of out­door recre­ation and ad­ven­ture. Never be­fore has a mag­a­zine ex­plored the myr­iad out­door ac­tiv­i­ties for all peo­ple, es­pe­cially within Aus­tralia! This mag­a­zine in­spires me deeply, through its im­agery and awe in­spir­ing trekking op­tions. There is truly an in­fi­nite amount of amaz­ing places to visit and ex­plore in this coun­try. In light of this, I would love to see some more ar­ti­cles re­gard­ing en­vi­ron­men­tal preser­va­tion and con­ser­va­tion, as en­sur­ing that our land­scape is cared for and pro­tected, is just as im­por­tant as ex­plor­ing it. Af­ter all, there is no com­mu­nity more pro-ac­tive and pas­sion­ate for na­ture than the out­door-lov­ing com­mu­nity! I can’t wait to see more great con­tent from this great mag­a­zine.

VA­RI­ETY IS LIFE

Hello from a long-term reader. The lat­est is­sue (Mar-Apr 17) proves once again why I keep on pick­ing up this mag­a­zine; with the wide va­ri­ety of des­ti­na­tions and ac­tiv­i­ties through­out, whether it was the Editor’s Antarc­tica trip, or the bucket list of treks, Out­door con­tin­ues to in­spire me to keep on get­ting out there. Nice work by all in­volved and I look for­ward to many more fan­tas­tic sto­ries! Kel Evans, QLD

TAK­ING ON AD­VICE

I read Out­door on and off – the main trig­ger for me lay­ing down my money is the Out­door Tech and Gear Test sec­tions. You have some of the most ex­pe­ri­enced writ­ers to ex­plain the dif­fer­ences be­tween dif­fer­ent equip­ment, whether it is sleep­ing bags, tents or back­packs, and I look for­ward to you more gear-ori­ented is­sues ev­ery time. Well done and keep up the good work. Stephanie Mal­li­son, NSW
