Meet Mark Roberts, our newest addition to the Trail Ambassador family. Originating from England, he grew up walking the South Downs in Kent before getting bitten by the outdoor bug on a trip to the mountains of Snowdonia, Wales. For the last three years he's been enjoying the great open spaces of the U.S of A, but will return home to his adopted home of Lapland in November 2011 – laden with a lot more ultralight gear and hopefully a packraft, ready for future adventures in the sub-arctic north. Among many other things, he maintains a site on the Lapland region called Backpacking North. Welcome aboard!!
