Hi chaps. I'm pretty new here but noticed on the last thread that there are a few of you in the Gloucester/Stroud area. I'm in Stroud myself and would love to meet up with some like minded people and go for a camp out somewhere. I used to do a lot of sleeping out when I was a lad. Back then my mates didn't have kids and didn't mind gettiing a little cold and wet (being teenagers we weren't all that clued up!). Nowadays they're all wimpish and under the thumb so I only get to go out on my own. Needless to say I don't bother so much. I've got some gear and some idea. I know how not to get wet and to respect the area I camp in. It would be great to meet up with some of you and learn some of the finer points of bushcraft. So, anyone fancy a beer sometime?
