I used to wild-camp on cycling trips in England and Wales and France, you can't beat it.
I mean, when dusk begins to fall you just get off the road and set up your tent in the nearest woods where nobody can see you..
Here's my bike on a trip in mid-Wales some years ago.
Incidentally you can cover amazing distances on a bike because the back wheel takes the full weight of your gear, not your legs, I averaged about 80 miles a day at an easy pace but once did 140 miles with a tailwind..

Looks good mate. Wales is a beautiful country. Spent most of my childhood holidays there and I am still a frequent visitor. True what you said about a bout cycling too. We were on the western isles last year met a lot of people cycling . The funniest I saw though was a German couple trying to cycle up to the top of the quirang with 80 litre back packs on, talk about bad weight distribution. They were all over the road.

Loving the pictures of your set-ups, Monkeymagic & Hunter I can't get enough of seeing how others choose to deploy & use all their kit assets.

Note to self; take some pictures of DD hammock & tarp rig next time I use it!

Look forward to seeing your hammock set up. I have a DD myself but have not used it in anger yet. For kicking back with a brew, this $3 Thai hammock is ideal.

yes definately mate, would love to see some pics. i am off camping again this weekend , me and the better half were in the peaks last weekend but roughed it in a cottage
will take some more this weekend but will try a slightly different set up and location. i wanted to use a long log fire to heat it , but there were two many tree roots about and i didn't get there early enough to find enough dead standing wood.

Cheers Hunter, It is a good spot. Usually see large groups of long tailed tit and Dippers. I once saw the Heron fly up the river at that very spot. I was fortunate to be obscured by a tree as he flew up, he clocked me at eye level about 3 metres between us... amazing.

Great, positive, thread. Love some of the tarp set-ups some of you have. I'm a UK wild-camper myself, although admitedly I haven't been out as much as I would like. I don't go the tarp route though - like my comforts a little too much - got a good Terra Nova tent that can easily fit the gf, dog and myself in. Thinking of going off somewhere over the next couple of weeks, don't have transport at the moment so it can be a bit awkward.

The good thing about wild camping is that the gear doesn't have to be that expensive, you can pick some good gear up for a few quid. Here's a little head torch I got for £3.99 from Go Outdoors....

http://www.gooutdoors.co.uk/hi-gear-...dlight-p143635

Cracking little torch for the money, replacement batteries are cheap too, surprising how easier having a head torch is, especially when fiddling about with stoves, zips and what have you at night.

Another example of inexpensive (well, this one doesn't cost anything) kit is the soft drinks can stove you make yourself.

There's a tutorial here...http://www.naturalbushcraft.co.uk/ki...ths-stove.html.

Fantastic little stove, made a couple of them myself and they work great! It's really nice to make yourself a cup of tea on a stove you made yourself from something that is normally just thrown away.

I'll have to hunt out some pictures

I haven't been camping for years! When I've finished moving house I think I'll go. Wonder what a good spot would be for me?

Default My home Virgin Jungle Tulum, Quintana Roo, Mexico

Hey guys, I discovered David while building my place off the grid only 160 km from Cancun International airport.

Its away from the parasites and your all welcom to come and share my 20 years of savings and labor to make a place with all the necesities of life with some luxuries.

I believe that the cities and country where we are born belog to those powerfull families that are the elites of this world. I dont agree with the way they manage them but its like when you live under the roof of papa and moma, you have to follow their rules. If your not happy, you leave and build yourself a new house on a new land.

That is what I m doing and it work flawlessly. I start my village in the middle of the virgin jungle with legal titles for the land and make my own electricity and have my own unlimited pure water. Here is tuheu link to my website

www.quintanaroocampground.webs.com

Im also on a trading work for food and board site

http://www.wwoofmexico.org/profile/PatrickCarrier

One of my objectives is to make my own village, I hope you will join cause I got the technology and I can make everything myself with my own hands

Cheers

PAtrick
