Years ago we embarked on a couple of Halloween camps at one of our old haunts (pun absolutely intended!) in Canterbury. They were always, without fail, wet, damp, windy and cold.
So, this year, when we finally got the chance to go for a short camping break, it was October...the month of the damp smells, right?!
Err, actually, this October camp was just the opposite...warm sunshine during the day, very little rain...heavy dew, but very little rain (and wind)...but the nights were pure Winter! I'm talking, even with reflective blankets under our sleep mats (usual practice) and our mummy sleeping bags done up to the max, we still had to break out the emergency reflective blankets (the type that runners use after they've crossed the finish line). I reckon they literally saved our bacon! Especially when the condensation on the inside of the tent is ice!
So, what did we get up to on the South Downs?
Walks, walks and more walks...in the next few days we'll post some videos on here, so you can follow us as we wander the South Downs 🌄
Take care my friends
Ramble On! 🏕
Both Angie & Ian are avid walkers and campers...combining the two is like heaven on earth!
