Aricxi 20D Sil-nylon Ultralight 2 person Trekking Pole Tent Review

Aricxi 20D Sil-nylon Ultralight 2 person Trekking Pole Tent Review

Price £80 – £100 Weight – 1.2kg (ex pegs & guys) Score – 8 out 10 I needed a 2 lightweight person tent for my recent thru-hike of the South Downs Way and while I fancied splashing out on a Zpacks Duplex their waiting time was 2 months plus, so I decided to look at alternatives. After researching the popular alternatives and adding them to the gear comparison website I’m working on, I decided to take a gamble on an…

Wild camping – Uldale Head, Yorkshire Dales

Wild camping – Uldale Head, Yorkshire Dales

Location: Tebay, on the border of the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales national parks. Elevation: 530m I often look out for 2 things when researching wild camping spots – easy access to the M6 motorway and great night photography opportunities. This wild camping spot has both of these qualities and has the added benefit of being situated in a quiet area of the eastern fells/western Yorkshire Dales. Parking is easy and less than a mile from the motorway and the…

Wild Camping – Pillar, Lake District

Wild Camping – Pillar, Lake District

If you looking for a great 360 degree panoramic view of the lakes district and over towards the Irish sea then you will struggle to beat the summit of Pillar. This quiet and awkward to reach fell offers the rare opportunity to camp completely alone on the top of a high fell. With most of the other fells you often have to share camping locations with 2 or more tents, even in the depths of winter. There’s no water on…

Wild Camping: Wolf Crag, Haweswater Reservoir

Wild Camping: Wolf Crag, Haweswater Reservoir

Location : Wolf Crag, overlooking Haweswater Reservoir Elevation: 490m I discovered this beautiful wild camping spot while out on a day hike from Haweswater. This area of the lake district is far less crowded that most parts, largely due to it’s remote location and because it’s a dead end road within only one building on the whole reservoir. That being said it’s a great location because it’s only 30 minutes from the m6 the climb only takes about 60 minutes…

Wild Camping: Whernside, Yorkshire Dales

Wild Camping: Whernside, Yorkshire Dales

Location : Ramtree Moss , Whernside, Yorkshire Dales This is one of my favourite last-minute camp locations that I only really use when I’m confident its going to be a clear free evening. It’s a great location in either summer or winter, though be careful driving up to the start point if there is ice/snow on the roads as road up often isn’t gritted. The hike up is short and sweet, the location offers excellent panoramic views and it’s far…

Great Glen Canoe Trail Day 1 – Banavie to Loch Lochy

Great Glen Canoe Trail Day 1 – Banavie to Loch Lochy

We had a late start on day 1, largely due to a killer hangover from partying too much in Fort William the day before, and so we only set off paddling from Neptune’s Staircase at about 11:30 am. After unloading all our gear from the car-park at Banavie on the Northern Western side of the Canal, we slowly set about pumping up our boats and performing last minute gear checks. While we had a backup vehicle available in an emergency,…
