    First hang outside of the backyard

    A buddy found a great piece of 20+ acre woodland where the land owner is happy for me and him to hang whenever we want so popped out there today to be shown round. A lovely place with a great mix of tree's, lots of spruce and douglas. Also lots of old English woodland/coppice. Pretty little pond with a small feeder stream nestled in a couple of shallow valleys. After the guy showed us round we where itching to get the tarps up and fire up the Kelly kettle for a nice cuppa.

    This is the first time ive had a chance to get the kit setup properly, it still needs a bit of tweeking but thats half the fun!
    This looks like a great way of sleeping and im looking forward to a few overnighters in the coming months.

    Many thanks to everyone here for the great information!

    Heres some pics (awful iphone pics sorry!)

    Me all tucked in..


    Lee having a brew..

    That's a great introduction and welcome to the forum.

    Your tarp has great coverage. You have a nice little spot, enjoy it. But while your enjoying it give us some pictures and a video or two. Thank you so much for posting.

    Nice spot. Good score on the land. Correct me if I'm wrong but as I understand it, it can be hard to find land to camp on.
