Hello from Mike @ Lighter Faster Hire

Postby LighterFasterHire » Sun 15 Sep, 2019 2:47 pm

Hi all, I'm Mike
a few words of introduction about myself and my latest adventure!

I live in Melbourne and basically just like being outside, one way or another.
Hiking, biking and backcountry snowboarding are probably my main vices but I've given paddling, climbing and trail running a pretty good go at various times as well.
I'm a father with a young daughter and lots going on so, like most people, try and squeeze in trips where I can. So much great stuff to do here in VIC

I'm in the process of setting up a small business to hire out Ultralight Hiking Gear (packs and shelters initially).
if anyone is interested in getting updates they can leave their details on my website Lighter Faster Hire
Would love to hear any comments or feedback - I've got a survey which I could circulate

I'm also a fan of craft beer.

Cheers!
Mike

Thanks!
Yes I think there can be quite a lot of risk in buying some of the high end UL gear - often just making a decision based on online reviews and hoping for the best. Will it fit? Will it suit me? How well made is it?
At least that's what I've thought in the past. Having a chance to see and try things first could save a few tears!

I have to ask an off-topic question. In your opinion, are there any "lighter" beers that are worth drinking?

Not really a craft beer but I reckon Rogers Beer by Little Creatures is a good tasting 'lighter' option, I think it's about 3.5%. - have you tried that one?

Anyone else got any they can recommend?

Hargeaves Hill JNR is a mid strength and a very nice brew.

Good concept. Tried to look at your site, but it asked for an email address , without which, I was not able to go further.

I don’t want any more emails from anyone. Particularly if I only want to see what you’re offering.

Thanks Andrew, yes I'm looking forward to getting up and running.
I'll be adding more details to the website over the next few weeks and using the email list to keep people updated
