Good vid , found this guy last week , he has a vid on the coast close to where Bopdude and I have camped . Thanks for sharing .
He doesn't make as many films as he used to as the filming tends to interfere with the whole experience of being out in nature.

He owns that woodland too. :thumbsup:

Now then what numbers are going to win me the lottery this week ! :rolleyes:

Now that is a contented man :)

Some amazing camerawork.....he has a natural eye for capturing nature on video.
Very lucky to own such a lovely wood too.......must be hard to leave it after each visit.

The Lavvu shelter kept him warm and dry for the night and blends in nicely with his surroundings:thumbsup:

I'm more tarping these days but I've got one of those Lavvu's and if I'm need a hill walking tent I've got a 35 year old Vango Beaufort 2. Its a bit heavy by modern standards and is allegedly for 2 but you'd need to be 'very good friends'.

Also got a big 4 berth job for the odd occasion that I can drag the missus out, proper sites only with all modcons.
