    Scotland / North England Monthly Camp / Meet

    Great idea. I’d be glad to help with training too. I have a preference for wild camping and can give details of a couple of great spots in West Scotland which I would be able to get to.

    Hiya Jake, welcome on board. We’re vanning too now, the comfort of a permanent bed has won us away from demountable camping. Hope our trails will cross one day!

    Brilliant. We’re mostly about wildcamping, but we do like to get a shower about once a week. I wouldn’t bother, but Kathy says it’s not nice to stink . I’m okay with spending a tenner or so if it gets a great view, somewhere to dump our trash bag, fill up water, etc. It’s nice to put the...
