    Showers while wild camping?

    Currently the shower at home is broken so Looked for local public showers. This is on the Wirral near Liverpool. I can't find any! In Germany all major rail stations have public showers... Is there a map of such facilities in the UK?

    Camping or glamping - ?

    Probably a silly question on a cycle chat website, but is it just me that's noticed how much campers have been 'conned' into buying all those wee 'extras' to make a weekend under canvas more 'enjoyable' - ? Seems that for a couple, nothing less than a six berth stand up family tent is required...

    Fly Camping

    Horrific new style of camping which combines the worst elements of wild camping, festival camping and fly tipping. The various authorities recognise that true wild camping is low impact and harmless. This new style involves rolling up to a beauty spot by car, unloading a whole bunch of...

    Non-Stick frying pans for camping

    Myself and my wife while touring for three months each year, like where possible to have a fry-up for breakfast, and also eat fried chops, sausages etc for evening meals. For many years we used two Trangia non stick frypans, bought back in the 1990's, and they were fantastic (used on gas...

    Winter camping?

    Fancy the odd microadventure. Possibly freecamping (most campsites seem to close by the end of October anyway, if not earlier) Anyone got any tips for winter camping (or even bivvying). Am of course prepared for "don't", "just don't". But once I've recovered from this cold or bug (caught on...

    Camping Season is over !

    Well the camping season is over and the Lake Dennison region almost becomes a ghost town. So why not spend a cool crisp Fall day rolling around the closed roads of the campgrounds. I ran into 6 walkers in the two hours of play time, and a couple cars by the lake, but nowhere what you would...

    Hammock Camping

    I've been looking around for ideas about tents and things for touring, and increasingly I'm finding references and YouTube videos to hammock camping, and Tarp camping, which I confess I've never heard of. The idea appeals, especially in Japan where we'd need to travel light and the nights are...

    Wild Camping in Perth

    All the campsites in Perth are booked due to a festival, d'oh! Would it be legal for me to wild camp in Kinnoull Hill Woodland park, or would that count as "enclosed land"? Thanks. :smile:
