CAMPING FOR BEGINNERS

Leave no trace | My top 5 tips for UK wild camping beginners

Leave the wilderness clean and tidy. With so many images of trashed wild spaces in the media today I had to put a video out there explaining all the leave no trace principles and my top 5 tips and tricks on how to abide by them.

Wild camping in the UK is fun and enjoyable if done properly and legally, this video is for beginners who are learning and especially those who have made the mess I find out on my hikes almost every time I go camping and backpacking. I know that most of you trusted trail hunters already know this.

BTW, I MADE THIS INCREDIBLE BIT OF GEAR
