    UK up north get together

    Would it not be a good idea if some of the hammock lot from the north up to the boarders of Scotland got together for a few weekends. It is hard to find a group of lads and/lasses who hammock camp. The boarders area has some of the best hammock camping sites and it can be done as the Scottish law lets you wild camp.

    I live in Bristol but I'm normally in Carlisle for the first Saturday of the month so I could be interested in a meet.
    Where are you thinking of?

    I may be able to make a night on the way up, or coming back from Scottish trips further up if it co-incides.
    I have no dates for this though as its weather dependent on there being snow and serious cold.
