    My mistake D!
    I of course meant England rather than the all encompassing "UK"!
    You are very lucky to have so much space up there that can't be patrolled by farmers in their green Land Rovers!

    Not so Grasshopper! There's a distant land, far to the north (but very definitely still in the UK!) where more enlightened views prevail.

    Wild camping is no problem throughout most of Scotland, leaving aside urban parks and folks gardens, as long as you use 'common sense' and get there 'under your own steam'.

    Paddling, cycling or walking all perfectly permissible. Pitching up 10' from the car is less so. Disclaimer: - check the details on www.outdooraccess-scotland.com

    This is all just in case any good folks from across the pond get put off coming to the 'best part' of the UK

    Welcome from the north of Sweden!
    Hammocking is so fun!

    Welcome!

    Very envious of your New Zealand trip!

    Check out the DIY section for some great ways to save some money so you can obsess without worry of breaking the bank!
    "Love the earth and the sun and the animals, despise riches, stand up for the stupid and crazy, hate tyrants, argue not concerning God.
    Have patience and indulgence towards people, re-examine all you have been told in school or church or in any book,
    dismiss whatever insults your own soul.
    This love above all love has leisure and expanse."

    Hi Trev

    You will fit right in here with your 'Illness'. Most of us here are quite sick and lots have it terminally.

    Welcome to HF.

    It's been said before by others in one or the other welcome-thread -- the best way to say welcome:

    Welcome to the madness!

    Hey Fronkey,
    Come on, seriously? I have a good name?

    Yours is way better, puts a strange image into my head.....some weird creature, half frog, half donkey!
    Not sure which way round is funnier though, front frog half or back frog half

    Cheers though and thanks everyone for the very warm welcome!
