I arrived at our meeting point the travellers rest early as usual, so it was too the bar for my first.
Paul came approx 30 mins later it was now around 13:00 hrs.
A couple of hours spent drinking and catching up on matters we headed to the wildcamping location which would be one of 3 woods which I picked out in earlier videos.
Walking deeper into the woods we were amazed at seeing still a covering of snow still here as was seen in my prusik knots and tarp setup video.
I took alone my Clark Camo Nx-250 hammock and Vertex fly and Paul (Kilburnicus) his Dutch army Bivi and tarp.
No sooner we were putting final touches to our setups Paul (themuss) had arrived. Me and The muss had made arrangements the day before to meet here for him to see what he was missing and to have a bit of overdue crack, he wouldn’t be staying tonight on this occasion.
Paul helped us with the fire as he is always keen to look after his friends he prepared some kindling and a fire area for us.
After Paul’s departure it was time to crack open a can and sit by a raging hot fire we had bacon for a starter.
Me and Kilburnicus had quite abit of catching up to do as well which would take us into the early hours.
Paul set away his new hexi stove which he purchased for £4 and cooked two minted lamb steaks and he was well chuffed by the performance of his new stove.
I only took my usual 4 cans with me and spilled practically a full can and came home with one in backpack, am not sure on killys intake but I can guarantee it was more than that.
Out came my stove to make a brew to drink whilst in my hammock but ended up drinking while we nattering well into the morning. My mobile was saying 04:30 the clocks were going forward on to BST that morning and I wasn’t sure that my phone had done this for me so was thinking it could be even 05:30. It was time to retire to our beds.
We were awaken about 09:00 with shotgun fire which carried on for a few hours I new then there was no more sleeping so it was a slapup breakfast cooked for two in my new pan, six rashers of bacon, mushrooms, pepperoni and six eggs.
There was no hurry to pack away so we hung around a few hours soaking up the occasion.
On leaving the woods someone else was interested in our activities as our vehicles had been reported to the law after explaining things and me forwarding on my website daveswildcamping.com they were happy and went on there way.
Thanks to my mate Paul themuss and to my friend Paul Kilburnicus for the great evening a one to go into my catalogue of memories that will follow me the rest of my life.
