Hey there - I notice you have a child. I'm just in the process of finishing off my first draft of a booklet currently called Wild Camping with Children or Wild Camping for Families (cant decide) You can read it on the following thread- The thread is here. Would love to know your thoughts or ideas as I haven't really covered very young children that well. :) Welcome Onboard :) Melissa

thank you all for a very warm welcome, nice :) delicagirl, we will definitely be chatting and I joined the Delica forum the other day. Melissa, I will definitely give you feedback about camping with a toddler, will do a few trips first. Please feel free to nudge me if I haven't got back to you in a few months
