Wild Camping In Forest


On the 12th April 2012 myself and two Pauls one in the shape of themuss and the other a surprise friend whom neither of us have met before Killburnicus decided to join us.
Paul ‘themuss’ picked me up around 6pm we arrived there in about 30 mins where Paul ‘kilburnicus’ was waiting we headed off into the forest we eventually decided on our camp after some debating and proceeded to make a pit for the fire that would cook our Salmon and rabbit.
Once the two main meals were on cooking we opened up some cans, Killy was already half way through his by we arrived to meet him lol.
Paul themuss had his usual spirits I had 4 cans of special brew, we talked well into early hours before deciding to climb into our bivvys and retire and killy into his poleless Hilleberg Akto poor man forgot his poles and ended up just wrapping the tent around himself, by this time the sky had cleared after some drizzle earlier my view of the night sky was very limited only managing a couple of stars due to the thick canopy above use.
Most of my time was spent lying awake listening to the sounds of the forest and themuss snoring, I eventually got up at 6am to relieve my bladder and take in the sights of the morning forest and its wildlife.


Our Camp

Salmon Cooking

Rabbit and Salmon

Had a great time with the two Pauls and was a pleasure meeting Kilburnicus for the first time and hopefully do some more camping with them soon, before we left we covered over the fire pit and collected all our rubbish and took it out with us and returned our campspot into the same state it was before we arrived as so we had never been there.

My video to follow is of poor quality as my mobile phone camera quality settings wasnt set to HD due to a recent hardware reset of the phone which was a disappointment on returning home.
