No 378 - Wild Camp 1

Updated about 24 days ago.

The first in the 12 part series, this wild camp takes place virtually on my doorstep on the Malvern Hills. Arriving late, using a bivvy bag and leaving early meets the requirement of keeping wild camping as low impact as possible. I chose to keep the equipment simple and cheap, typical for someone trying it for the first time. With an ex Army bivvy bag and an old 2/3 season sleeping bag on top of a small sleeping mat. The weather wasn’t unkind, but it was a bit dull sleeping and waking in a grey cloud. Please check out the website to see the equipment and what little is needed to enjoy a nights rest like this. Keeping it simple for the first Wild Camp is important and I hope this journey will encourage people to try it for themselves, but respect their environment in the process.
