    I just wanted to say hello to everyone. I've been following the forum for some time but only recently joined. I'm a single wild camping female who ventures mainly into the Lakes...I live on a canal boat and pretty much live for the mountains :)

    Welcome to treklite @Starlight

    I envy you on two levels....

    Firstly you live within dashing distance of the lakes, rather than having to tolerate the 6-8 hour drive some if us have :frown:

    Secondly, a canal boat !!!! I lived in Oxford on the banks of the canal for a while and my route to work was along the towpaths. Every morning I would gaze enviously at the boats I passed.
    My daydream at the time was to get out of my catering job and become a water Gypsy, floating around the UK waterways at the mercy of their tepid flows.
    I thought perhaps I could grow 'beneficial herbs' :cigar: in a greenhouse at the front of the boat and ply my trade in every town I passed :whistling:, thus becoming self sufficient.
    Alas it never happened, I ran away from catering to become an accountant and my wild dreams were forgotten.

    Happy camping :thumbsup:

    Thank you so much for the warm welcome everyone! and what a dream that was @JKM - I'm sorry to hear it didn't come to fruition :( but if you ever want to tour the waterways up here, you're welcome to come along for a ride :) Yes, I count myself very lucky and it's a shame many people don't even consider this way of life...
