On the 25th September 2010 I set off to a job interview/camping trip to Gloucestershire, after the interview on the following Monday I was on my way through South Wale.
Campsite in Coleford Gloucestershire
I camped at another three campsites on my way through Wales from Brecon Beacons to Snowdonia National Park
I had the time of my life as much as you can have alone as I travelled through the amazing countryside of this fantastic country the scenery is breathtaking around every corner, lakes and mountain its like the Lake District stretched out I remembered thinking to myself.
My aim was to reach Snowdonia National Park and hike Snowdon via Crib Goch and maybe even do a Wildcamp somewhere on route.
I reached the planned car park and took out my bulging backpack and made my mind up to go light over the Crib and just do Snowdon and do a Wildcamp afterwords after phoning my friend Paul from Denbigh in Denbighshire and arranging to meet him later in the day.
The next time I was to ring Paul was from my rescue point on Crib Goch how embarrassing, I will not go into the details here as the vid below tells the story, what I will talk about is the Wildcamp I had afterwards with my new friend Paul whom had driven a couple of hours south-west to meet me at the car park where I had parked to do my Crib Goch attempt.
We drove a few miles down the road to a lake by the side of the road which I had seen passing and thought to myself at the time that would be a nice wildcamp spot.
Unpacking our rucksack’s from the cars we headed over a wall to some trees by the side of a river where we setup camp, Paul had brought a few cans of beer to down and they were very welcome too , we laughed and joked all night with very little sleep.
I had met a very nice and one of the funniest guys I had ever met and will never forget the wonderful time I had spent travelling through Wales , cheers Paul.
