    Wild Camp A Month 2018 Challenge



    CLICK HERE TO REMOVE THESE ADVERTS
    After the OK from an Admin I'd like to suggest a challenge for you (and me) wild campers in 2018 and hopefully beyond.

    Some of you get out all the time and you are more than welcome to join in, this is also aimed at the occasional camper who needs a push/challenge to get out and about.

    The guild lines (not rules) are as follows.

    Head out for a wild camp at least once per calendar month.
    A camp out on the 31st of the month into the 1st of the next month, is just 1 night and it's only counted as the previous months wild camp.

    Pub car parks are allowed, but not if you have to pay for them, no problems buying their food and drink but if you pay for car parking of any sort that doesn't count.
    Wild and remote areas are great but it you only have time for a quick one mid week between work days then these count just as much.

    You shouldn't use the same spot as your "challenge" site in the same year, but if it get's you out don't stress about this one 12 times in the same spot is better than not getting out so shout about it.

    Multiple nights out in the same month cannot be carried over to the next month or use to fill missed months.

    How will this be policed? Your own enthusiasm and honesty should be enough.

    Once you have wild camped simply post up one or two (but don't fill the thread) with a photo or two of your Motorhome or Campervan at it's Wild Camping spot with a short description (should you wish) and a number such as 1/1 for a wild camp done in January through to say 8/8 for 8 out of 8 in August.
    If you miss one don't stress there is no shame to 7/8 if life gets in the way.

    If you are out multi times in a month please be reserved and only post up your one per month on this thread.

    Why?
    I'm a cyclist bike packer and wild camper and have been for many years.
    Every year a group of us (separately or in groups all over the UK) do a "Bivi A Month" challenge but Mrs Climber won't join me, but we love motor homing after hiring several vans over the last few years we've finally bought our own Campervan and she's agreed to "Wild Camp(ervan) a month in 2018"

    So it's Wild Camp(ervan) A Month for us in 2018 and hopefully beyond....

    Please sign up below if you fancy a challenge for next year

    Yeah, it's a good incentive to seek out the more unusual spots and brave the Scottish weather whilst avoiding the NC500 hoards in the summer!! We are up for it.

    I thought at most meets there was a charge so how can this be wild camping ?
    The most important thing is to enjoy your life - to be happy - its all that matters.
