Apart from telling us about adventures of running around in the Scottish Highlands in not much more than a kit, our guest Tom Langhorne also delves into his love for the wilderness.

TOM’S MAGICAL MYSTERY MEDIA MASH-UP:
The Dungeon – Trailrunning at Mt Beerwah
I finally got to completing and uploading the little video I made to try and capture a fairly brutal trail that I’ve had the ‘pleasure’ of running a few times.
YETI Presents: Denali’s Raven – Leighan Falley
In this Yeti film, we have a very special snapshot of Leighan’s life shared with us. Her story is amazing and the cinematography in this short film is fantastic.
Jared Leto – Thirty Seconds to Mars
This was one of those rare gems that popped up in my YouTube feed. I genuinely had no idea who Jared Leto was and that kind of made my experience of the videos greater than if I’d have known he was famous. I just saw a great series of well captured outdoor stories with an interesting host. These short films are beautiful and well worth checking out.
Stairway to Heaven in Austria
Love heights? You might be interested in checking this madness out. It’s a place called Donnerkogel, in Austria’s Salzkammergut resort area where they’ve constructed a 43-meter long sky high ladder stretched over an abyss of 700 meters below. It’s hard to watch in parts (purely due to my unease around heights) but it’s spectacular none the less.
George Thompson The Philosophy of Identity
Another YouTube feed gem. I have no idea who George Thompson is but when I watched this video and heard his thoughts on the power of spending time in the wilderness, it immediately resonated with me. For those of you exploring the outdoors for more than just exercise, this might interest you.
My Year Without Matches – Claire Dunn
Claire’s story of thrusting herself into the wild for an entire year and attempting to live off the land is truly captivating. You can learn a lot more about Claire and the book on her website naturesapprentice.com.au and jump onto Amazon and purchase My Year without Matches.

THE SCOTTISH TOM.
Here’s a couple of my favourite videos so far from the Scottish Tom’s YouTube Channel: Fandabi Dozi For some reason I find his content very captivating and interesting. In his Highlander video series he goes into the wilderness with similar kit to a 17th Century traveller. Step back in time and enjoy these videos below that Tom has put together.
The first video I ever watched of Tom’s
Tom’s overnight bushcraft camp video in which his sister reads Gaelic poetry
Making oatcakes as discussed on the podcast
