People stick their head down and walk past ignoring you unless they want to stare at you for some reason.
It makes me laugh when people I work with ask me if I'm not scared sleeping out in a tent in the countryside, when the walk to get to work at night is where the real danger lies.
Anyway, here's to the countryside, and sleeping under the stars.
amen, just as long as we get some clear nights to see the stars In saying that
wild camping in any weather can still be a great experience with the right equipment and attitude, oo and the right company aswell , nothing worse than moaners tagging along
