'The Van' and 'The Clan'

We love creating fun adventures at Big Tree Campervans, and this morning was especially exciting as Duncan Shaw & Ricky Crompton from The Clan arrived to pick up their campervan.  We've teamed up this week with The Clan - Scotland's famous cycling stunt team - after first working with them at the Outdoor Pursuits Show in Glasgow last year.  We've been hatching some fantastic plans for several months now, and it was great to see these two cycle stars finally get to pick up their Big Tree Campervan and start their adventure!  The really exciting part is that Duncan & Ricky are accompanied by Paul MacDonald who's a superb film maker, and the plan over the next week is that they're off on their adventures making a cycling/wake boarding/climbing/bungee jumping/campervan road movie in wonderful Scotland!

Duncan & Ricky's bikes are pretty impressive - an Echo trials bike and an awesome dirt jump bike, and the theme of the trip is all about having fun on their bikes, capturing loads of great stuff on film, and doing some adventurous stuff they've not done before... so we've teamed them up with some other cool adventure providers around Scotland (eg Mike Pescod's Abacus Mountaineering, and the guys at Highland Fling Bungee amongst others). 

We did a wee bit of filming when the guys got here, and now they're off on their Big Tree Campervan adventure extravaganza.  We're going to try and hook up with them later in the week to see how they're getting on, and I know we'll be in for a real treat of a movie when it's all finished in a few weeks time!
