    Bugger it, I'm easily brought.
    Pass me that red dress and the map with the cabins marked.

    Though it wouldn't be a pretty sight!

    So wearing a dress and then visiting remote cabins is your Friday jolly?
    :)


    I am also one of those that prefer not to be in a group of people, as the main reason for me getting out is solitude, or intense quality time with my son.

    The list in Post no 1 is excellent, and there should be no need to write it down, as that is how we should behave at all times ( modified for circumstances)

    But I would love to know how you achieve the same hygiene in nature as at home. (point number 15)
    Impossible.

    Me in a red dress, is probably something that should only ever be allowed in an isolated cabin.
    The world is not ready for that!

    If he likes vodka, then he should have a word with his mother. Who his dad is..

    SCOTTISH ANCESTRY!

    Scots are the Finns of Britain?

    * Burning of rubbish on a communal fire whilst people are cooking
    * People with no bush skills doing dangerous stuff
    * Dog walkers
    * Posh dog walkers
    * Having no where to poop

    Why would someone want music in the first place in nature?! Natures own sound should suffice.

    Dog walkers plugged into their phones listening to music with no idea where their dog is or what it's doing.
    Dog walkers who scoop the poop into a plastic bag then hang it on a bush or just leave it on the ground.
    I love dogs and there is no better companion in the woods. But these idiots make me want to commit something I shouldn't. Especially when a polite request to remove such offences is met with rudeness or indifference. Says it all!

    Agreed about these plastic bags hanging off trees, as the Hon Sec of the International Dung Beetle Society, i can confirm we are having trouble getting supplies.

    A recent trip to tarr steps there were SIXTEEN bags of dog poo thrown in the hedge or hanging from the hedge on the walk down from the car park to the river. Less than half a mile... to say nothing of the little piles that were not picked up. Despite polite notices and a poop bin. Grrrrr!

    I might poop in a bag myself. It would be better than finding a tree! Also, it would scare the posh dog walkers.
