Hi All
« on: June 17, 2017 »

Hey Guys,
I'm Mark, I've been camping on and off for years and "proper camp" with my family each year. But I also love wild camping, I mainly cycle so my kits can be a bit larger than back pack.

I used to sleep under tarp but recently upgraded to a polish laavu poncho tent. That my brother and I share. I know it is quite weighty but on the bike I can get away with it.
I am have way beteeen army surplus gear and basic bushcraft. Shying away from the more expensive gear.

I am also starting to plan and prep for some hiking and camping, with my first trip looking like being annalong.

I hope that I will be able to increase my bush craft and find appropriate places to practice.

(The garden only take you so far!)

Hi and welcome. I'm starting to cycle myself but I don't think I'm game enough to cycle & camp yet :)
Annalong will be the perfect spot to do a bit of testing and messing with Bushcraft. Good luck  8)

Hi Marlowe.  Welcome to NI Wild.  It's always interesting to hear what gear others use and where they use it!
