    Hi all,

    My name's Roy - I've been walking since I was a kid and Wild Camping in many places mainly Peak District, Lake District and north Wales - Thought I'd join here so I can have a look see what other people are up to and see if I can improve my kit any further (spending close to nowt!!)

    I use reasonably low weight kit traded-off against comfort / foibles such as a candle lantern, a Wild Country tent rather than owt lighter and a heavyish sleeping bag because I'm 'nesh'

    Next camp for me is probably end of April up on Kinder Scout to try and maybe catch the tail-end of the meteor shower but I'm usually out and about somewhere on days off

    Hi from an ex resident. Often I would park at the station and head out all directions with my pack. Nowt wrong with Wild Country tents. I've not gone lighter than my trusty Vango Apex. Enjoy picking up tips and advice here.
