I needed to hit the hills so headed out on an impromptu wild camp to one of my favourite locations, which has the added benefit of being not too far away.
A very cold forecast, with icy winds throughout the night and temperatures plunging below zero from late afternoon. The wind chill effect brought things down to double minus figures. I was nice and warm, using a new budget down winter sleeping bag, which should hopefully cater for more varied budgets. Clear skies as night fell made for an atmospheric and relaxing winter camp, more great memories made. I have tried to give a few tips to people who are just starting out in this video and I hope you find it useful, a list to some of the gear I have used is below.
Thank you for watching, enjoy our Great Outdoors and always leave no trace.
