    wildcamping

    on a facebook page i use someone queried sites or wildcamping triggered a lot of debate about what is wilding from some that think roughing it is cold showers or using the onboard wc, then you have people living in the woods for weeks, where does wilding come in this? my definition would be a lack of provided facilities as opposed to basic services????

    My view would be that true wildcamping would be in the middle of nowhere, completely self sufficient for power, water, food etc. for a few days, and completely undisturbed (If you can still find that in the UK).

    In which case, although I have been known to do this, my preference is a pub car park, or at least a stroll from a pub, so strictly, what I do isn't really wildcamping. Doesn't bother me, I doubt I'll get drummed off the site for it.

    Usually, the nearest I get to it is either in the boat or the canoe.
    God bless Colonel Sanders. Marvellous man!

    Under canvas as far away from civilisation as possible, used to do it but nowadays need all my home comforts.
    Imho motorhoming regardless of location isnít wildcamping especially with all the mod cons and technology most of us have onboard.
    The most important thing is to enjoy your life - to be happy - its all that matters.

    well, for me, ''wildcamping'' comes from the French ''camping sauvage'' which is basically, sticking your tent up anywhere but on a proper campsite.
    i call what we do on here, ''parking up for the night ''
    of all the bodily functions that could be contagious
    thank god it's only the yawn

    60 grand will only get you a very cheap Hymer, unless you buy an old one.

    When I was young wildcamping was either a bivvi bag or a tent, nowadays I class wildcamping as anywhere I don't have to pay for the privilege.

    Wildcamping has a nicer ring to it than free parking, which is effectively all we're doing in a camper or mh.

    Hissed as a newt, fast asleep in a bus shelter on a minus 9 degree winters night, somewhere between Winkle and Buxton and hair frozen to the shelter bench.
    Now that's wild camping!

    Or is it just bloody stupidity?
    The real trouble with reality is that there's no background music.
