a small water colour set always comes with me on camping trips - great entertainment and the best way to relax and record where you are. don't forget the loo roll either (watercolour paper is too stiff)

Another great blog entry Nick! I'd add to the list a bag to carry it all in and the smaller the better. Whatever size bag people use, whether 20 ltr or 120 ltr, they always manage to fill them to overflowing and it's no fun walking miles carrying your own body weight!


Nick, very cute the way you patched those two different blog entries together. Started off as a comparison of all the different kinds of camping, ended up being your personal recommendations on how to "wild camp". Still very enjoyable, don't get me wrong. I totally agree that Wild Camping is the 2.1 of camping for the 10s. The more Bear Grylls, the better. So the question beckons Nick... when will you take on Extreme Camping? And where will you do it in the world??

ps: reminder: NY's resolution, to reply to blog messages...


I encourage anyone to do whatever level of camping they can, emphasizing the need for a minimalist approach. It's good practice for one day when many of our modern conveniences might not be so readily available.

Think you may have another book idea here... I love reading this stuff...getting out and doing it is another thing but all in good time I guess...xxx

Brilliant! I really enjoyed reading this. Can't wait to get hold of your book and read more.


Really awesome. It is not easy to manage a life of camping whether it is consist of few days in a dangerous environments as well


Just found your page...excellent stuff. Would be interested in your thoughts about narrow boats not the 70 foot pimped out monsters but the more hippy small beauties with noce log burners.
If you know your water ways and got some time on your hands you can find some loverly rural spots to chill watching the water life.

take it easy
