WildCamping In Woods

On the 23rd April 2012 myself Daveswildcamping and Paul decided on a Wildcamp in some woods the location is top secret, Paul trying out his new battery power spit, me my new MTP Basha.
This blog if you didn’t no it yet you will by you watch my video that its totally dominated by the cooking of a big limp of meat.
I arrived at Pauls around 4pm and we headed to the butchers for a joint of his best silverside beef then went back to Pauls to finish off his packing, we eventally arrived at our location around 7pm after only 1mile of hiking into the woods, I setup my new basha as we were expecting some rain, the sky clouded over and cleared many times through the night. Paul began digging the pit for our fire that would cook our beef joint that would have our mouths watering for fours before we finally started to carve it open. We devoured it like a couple of canibals haha, I had some veggies and pototoes roasting in some foil which were slightly over done, Paul had some gravy which his mother had made earlier.
After slicing through half of the 2.5kg of beef we felt a little full.
The rest of the story is we had a bit crack drank a few cans then went to kip, we awoke about 7am after my usual poor sleep made worse by a stomach full of British Beef.

    The moon is at Perigee .. LOL

  22. paul harmer Says:

    Pls visit Paulsstargazing .com for more info … LOL

  23. david murphy Says:

    63 Jupiter moons this would be strange to see from the surface, image the gravitational effects on the planet when you think our single moon can pull the tides in and out, some of Jupiters moons are much closer to it than ours too.

  24. paul harmer Says:

    Jupiter has 66 confirmed moons .. Saturn has 62 .. Mars has 2 .. Uranus has 27 .. Neptune has 13 .. Pluto ( though not now classified as a planet ) has 4 ..
    Charon , Pluto’s largest moon is over half the size of Pluto .

  25. paul harmer Says:

    One last thing ( as Columbo used to say ) . The Eta Aquarids meteor shower peaks tonight . I would love to be out under a clear sky to see it .. The moon will be full tonight and wash out all but the brightest of them though ..
    The Eta Aquarids are a light shower, usually producing about 10 meteors per hour at their peak.
    Take care and i’ll see you there …

    I was wild car camping last night and watched the super moon Perigee till after 4am it was a rare clear sky last night first chance in a while I have been able to sleep under the stars, parked up the moors in one of my usual spots crawled into my sleeping bag.

  27. Paul aka The Muss Says:

    I’m sending the Muss in to stop this wildcamping in a c1 it should be illegal and banned get your bloody bivi out and put it next to your car and camp at least then you be camping and you can watch the moon outside 😉

  28. david murphy Says:

    The reason of the car camping is there’s too many nosey bastards wondering what you are doing I was parked up early hours last week and a couple of cars pulled up and I had my seat down lying down and they must have though no one was in my car and they came right up to the window, imagine if I was lying in a bivvy next to my car.

  29. paul harmer Says:
