Brill pics and well done  O0
 
4am!  Thats what time me and my mate usualy started walking doing most of the wainwrights. Set off from Barnsley around midnight drove up to the lakes got to our starting point around 3 30am. Had a drink. and started walking as the light broke.  :)

Just like you did  :)  we experienced many spectacular sunrises over the fells  :smitten:

Wonderfull  O0

I'm a bit moved now with all this sharing.  Thank you.
It's great to read your sharing...and know how special it is for so many too.

I guess I must have got lucky with both the sleep and the sunrise.

Next step.. to go out from my own house, on an evening, sleep out
somewhere, do a walk early morning and then be back before no one misses me.
That'll be fun.


Joe, I chuckled when I read this..  ;) O0 O0 ....

Well done dibble.. I haven't wild camped myself and would love to do it.. Maybe with some others, cos it would scare me on my own..   :)

Catherine i have had the pleasure of your company on many a fine walk and i am convinced you believe you are still 21. You have this enthusiasm not just for your exploits on the fells or life in general but your trip reports may it long continue. ;D  Congrats on your 1st wild camp and hear to many more. :) ;) ;) O0
Every journey begins with a single footprint.
Nuts about walking.

Yessssss!    O0 O0 O0
Great that you could experience all that - it's a lot of effort isn't it, but well worth it. And I think I just thought up a title for your first book -
how about "Western Sunrise" ?!

Sometimes courage comes as a small voice at the end of the day saying,
Ill try again tomorrow.

Thanks Chris.   It's really making me smile to think of all the places nearby that I
don't know and can now explore in different times of the day.   ;)

How was the Banshee ? I've just bought one off ebay and waiting for delivery so I can get out on my Second wildcamp in my own tent  :D   

Brillo, here it is..



I personally found it difficult to work out what went where, but it did help once I realised that it
has a side opening, because when I put it up in the garden I couldn't even find where the in and out
bit was, and I was crawling underneath to get in and out... so it was quite a relief ( pheww ) to
find out where the opening zipper was, lol!   :D

And, this is a proud moment... this is my tent and I slept ok in it!
...my bed... on a blow up mattress which you pump up with your foot on it...
 quite easy to do and oh so comfy and then my grandad left me this very warm sleeping bag  and
 can you see my little red pillow?  I hugged that to get to sleep.



And, for me, this is one of the best bits, apart from it all being a best bit, is to lie in bed and see
this sort of view..



The other thing I must add, is, I think that the space is great for one, but a bit squishy for 2,
nice if you are lucky enough to still be in the courting stage,   ::) :-*
but it all did very well for me and Lexi.  O0 O0
