I have begun this Camps section for people interested in following my wild camping.

When I began doing long distance trails in 2008, it became obvious that the ability to wild camp would stop me being tied to a walking schedule each day and reduce the costs of my trips considerably. As I had a fear of wild camping, the game plan over the last few years has been to move from bed and breakfasts to wild camping in stages.

So far I have only wild camped in Britain – in the Peak District for my first group camp, Northumberland for my first solo camp, and Scotland where I completed my first short wild camped trail.

Just as I have always tried to be a responsible walker, I strive to be a responsible camper, follow the relevant country codes and leave no trace of my visit.


Camps Playlist

I started recording my walks on video in 2012 to share the beauty of the walks with others. Above is a link to my new Camps playlist if that is an area which interests you.
