Favourite pair of shoes (boots): My Hi-Tec hiking boots bought in Fairbanks Alaska. If I am wearing these it means I am out in the wild either in Canada, Alaska or in my home state of Tasmania. While not expeditions, these trips require good planning, managed risk and good company to be successful – much like business!
