Ridgeway walk
« on: 18:39:25, 30/04/09 »
Hello all found this forum while searching for info on camping while hiking the Ridgeway walk. My partner and I plan to do it sometime.

We have been walking in the Snowdon and North Wales area and are trying to build up our walking so as to be able to tackle a long walk. This forum looks like it will be a mine of information on all things. Look forward to sharing with you all. :)
Merry meet and merry part.

Hi and welcome. The Ridgeway is lovely, we walked it a few years ago - did it the easy way though with B&B and luggage transfers!

Looking forward sharing our experiences.
Merry meet and merry part.

We did that before our walk as we were only occasional weekend walkers when we decided to tackle it. We walked every weekend and took time off work for a mid-week walk for the 2 or 3 weeks beforehand. I have a report on our walk starting http://www.whitehorsewalking.co.uk/ridgeway1.htm

I think you have probably done it the sensible way.
We have decided to really challeng ourselves and camp along the way, looking at some of the threads on the forum we may have to do some wild camping.  :idiot2:
We have done a practice walk today in Wales with all our kit and are very pleased with ourselves. We did seven miles. So the next  Bank holiday weekend we want to do two days together with some longer walks.
some lovely photos by the way. :)

I don't recall seeing a single campsite en route - I think people have wild-camped but it's not the most suitable walk for that. But where there's a will, there's a way.

If you get plenty of practice it'll be fine. And I expect you're more used to walking hilly areas than us - it's not too challenging in that respect. How long are you planning to take for the whole walk?
