Welcome to the Wild Camp a Month 2020 challenge. This carries on directly from the Wild Camp a Month 2018/2019 Challenge. I hope Suneye doesn't mid but I copy and pasted his guidelines from last year with a few modifications

Guidelines
Head out for a wild camp at least once per calendar month.
A camp out on the 31st of the month into the 1st of the next month, is just 1 night and it's only counted as the previous months wild camp.

A slight change in the rules this year to promote the increasing number of British aires, If you do find and stop on one of these please promote it and hopefully they will expand, please give it a bit of a write up, how much and what facilities it provides, for example Southport has one which is £10 to stop but has a tap and elsan point, or Caerlaverock Castle is a donation with a tap, grey and black waste disposal.

Pub car parks are allowed, Please state if you are charged for the use or is free to use with patronage.

Wild and remote areas are great but it you only have time for a quick one mid week between work days then these count just as much.

You shouldn't use the same spot as your "challenge" site in the same year, but if it get's you out don't stress about this one 12 times in the same spot is better than not getting out so shout about it.

Multiple nights out in the same month cannot be carried over to the next month or use to fill missed months.

How will this be policed? Your own enthusiasm and honesty should be enough.

Once you have wild camped simply post up one or two (but don't fill the thread) with a photo or two of your Motorhome or Campervan at it's Wild Camping spot with a short description (should you wish) and a number such as 1/1 for a wild camp done in January through to say 8/8 for 8 out of 8 in August.
If you miss one don't stress there is no shame to 7/8 if life gets in the way.

If you are out multi times in a month please post your latest stopover and show us your photo's but remember it still only counts as one per month.

Have fun and we look forward to sharing your experiences here.

FORT Perch Car Park New Brighton.
Plenty here last night esp since they put restrictions in place down the other end of the prom 7 vans and a couple of stealth too I think. As well as a few on the parade drive set back from the road.
1 large pilote van seemed to be newbies as they were showing another couple from another van how things worked. Then decided to dump the grey on the car park.!!!

Edit.. Sorry just realised how dark the image is

Happy New Year Wild Campers!!
Unfortunately due to work commitments and illness, we are struggling this month :(. The intention is to finish early next Friday (31st) and get away for a night or two. The location and photo will be posted here before 3rd Feb (if Herman can give us a couple of days grace before collating the "1 of 1's" ;);)).

Not a problem, I'm in exactly the same boat and planning on the 31st and the 1st of next weekend.

The weather forecast was to be best in the NE, so off we went towards Peterhead and parked up at Cruden Bay 2 to walk down to Slain's Castle and gain 01/01 for 2020. The weather was perfect, we had even filled our water tank as frost was not likely. The parking area was tight and plenty of large potholes, but we slotted in Ok, there was room to park right next to the castle ruins, but there was evidence of bonfires and vandalism, so we didn't want to park there.

The next day saw us heading down towards Dundee to visit relatives, but we stopped off at Edzell to check out the rural car park, just past the Castle; plenty of Angus council signs indicating no camping iaw management rules, and the village had 2 large car parks with similar unfriendly signs indicating no overnight parking. The roads however were very wide, and so we stopped overnight there as well!!

Cutting it fine but we are here, last night of the month for 1/1, Conwy marina. A bit wild and we will see if the wind whinning through the masts keeps us awake.

If I get desparate I can claim my 2/2 as we stayed a a 2nd night on saturday after a great day in and around Conwy, but we do plan to get away again in February.

Spent a lot of this month in Wiltshire on the Drove and Stonehenge camp site at Orcheston. For info you can use the facilities there (elsan, showers, laundry, water) for a donation. Washing machine and dryer you pay for through coin slot.

stopped at an unglamorous but welcome lay-by on the A43 before Brackley

Tuesday got me to Cromford for the night. It’s pay & display during the day but free overnight 20:00 to 09:00 at this time of year. Very quiet night and it meant I managed to miss the snow not heading towards Buxton til Wednesday
