    hi there . i followed gazo's link from the bbs .
    i used to do a lot of wild camping when younger . only took a 58 pattern feather sleeping bag and sometimes a goretex bivi( my mate and his dad work for w.l gore so we got them cheap) our stoves and food . would spend friday to sunday out in the woods .

    walked the west highland 3 times and rough camped it every time too . just the bare essentials = sleeping bag ,bivi,spare clothes,waterproofs and cooking stuff

    i used to work for silva uk in livingston near edinburgh . i was on the production line making the multinav gps and used to test life boat compasses too. a bit of advice . dont buy a multi nav . not worth it and they are old hat now anyway lol

    not done much in the last ten years but im itching to take it all up again

    take care
    paul

    not got exciting stories lol. we were just three guys that enjoyed going wild camping . we would go to the same place mostly . we used to bury food i.e in tins and so on . we dug a fire pit and had our bed area all dug level and under a tree for shelter .we used to tie two army ponchos up as a basha although we did get a sheet of dpm goretex and made a basha that we also buried there so we did not have to take it home every trip. the site was 5 miles from home . we got dropped off on the friday after school then on sunday we would walk home

    its days i miss to be honest and i would go back now if i could .
