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! 🏕
Sharing Our LOVE Of The Outdoors!
Doing what we love is what we're doing here...and sharing that love with you!
Walking and camping are two of our passions and we do both as often as possible...in fact we endevour to get out walking everyday.
Our local marshes provide our daily 6 mile walk and the surrounding Kent countryside is where we do our more expansive wanderings....unless of course we are away in a tent! :)
On here you will find me (Angie) rambling about our ramblings :)
Reviewing bits of kit is something I particulary enjoy...hey, if it doesn't do what it says on the tin, folks need to know...right?!
Campsite reviews, even how accessible the walks are that we do.
We are doing this for fun, with affiliate links possibly in the future :)
For now though, we will be sharing our experiences...we trust you'll enjoy the ride!
Both Angie & Ian are avid walkers and campers...combining the two is like heaven on earth!
