Making a camping checklist first and checking your equipment before your first trip.
thanks for that :lol-053:Don't talk about being murdered on here you'll put many off for ever. The risk being discussed is security of van and contents.
It's precisely this arrogant attitude as if you think you can do anything you feel like you want to that spoils it for others. I've been wild camping since 2006 and if a sign says No Camping then it means someone doesn't want you there so why make matters worse? To use common sense would be to challenge properly such signs, not to exacerbate what may already be a difficult situation.I disagree here as I can decide to apply common sense and stay the night if I desire. 99.999% of the time there will be no consequence. I have wild camped by now a 1000 nights and only once have I moved because I was on National Trust property and the warden asked me nicely.
Well, it was the Daily Mail after all :lol-049:I have a small lockknife. I keep it in my ruc sac with a torch, whistle, compass etc etc and I keep it for exactly the same reason: cutting fruit etc when up mountains. I hunted for weeks for the type, a serrated blade which slices through fruit etc with ease, but on simple contact does not cut skin. I was sick of cutting my own fingers! I'm not certain how he was prosecuted because I'm sure we're allowed anything up to a 4 inch blade.
Personally I think the cops have been disappointed they waited all night and didn't get a drunk driver so they were determined to get him for something. Anything. Mind you, don't they have to have reasonable suspicion to search your vehicle?
This whole thing doesn't sound quite right to me.
Mannie,Hi All, been reading the thread with interest as our camping adventures we go mainly wild and off grid camping in our mh as we live in Sweden ,I thought we would make you aware that up here you can wild camp for 3 nights and move on, that!s any where,but that's not to close to people's living area but can be on private land ,it's called old man's rights ( ALLEMANSRÄTTEN ) so if and when your up this way ,you can enjoy Sweden at its Best,Regards ALF.
Sooner you than using a flask for tea. Got to be freshly made every time.In the evening, I find it practical to make a big flask of tea as well as my thermal cup (a really good one that can keep fresh, hot tea drinkable for up to about 8 hours.) Then in the morning I can wake up and move on if need be and my tea is already to hand. If there's no hurry and I'm not having a multi-fruit smoothie I will fire up the Horizon stove (or camping Gaz stove if situation calls for it) for breakfast and after breakfast I'll fire up the Kelly Kettle and renew the flask and cup which will generally see me through the day.
After father's day this year (next week or so) I'll occasionally use my new electric kettle for the tea and the microwave or toaster for breakfast, but probably only on dreich days when it'll make life more comfortable.
Buy some maps or map on your I pad better than sat nav they can send you the wrong way.Hi
Is there such a thing?? I would like a sat nav on an I pad but will use only pay as you go not contract
so.... do you need Wi-Fi to use a sat nav app and will it tell you where you are if not on Wi-Fi?
getting really confused as I need to replace very old sat nav but want to combine it with an I pad....does that make sense?
