    Hello there,
    My name is Michael, 60, and live in Consett, North West Durham. Im relatively new to all this, though i have walked/hiked and wild camped. From single over nighters to multi day treks and wild camping. I have just discovered the joys of hammocking! Im fortunate that I have many local woodlands within walking distance. However as they are all private Im hesitant about fires, though have hammocked in them over night. I have have a variety of gear, some cheap and cheerful, but do the job, and some more expensive.
    I love the outdoor life, and spend my days off out in the country, or up on the moors. Would like to meet like minded, local, people for joint adventures. Or if there is a local bushcraft location I could safely use, and learn from others.

    Hi and welcome from just down the road, Brockwell Woods is a top spot, Blaydon Burn area, they charge £8 a night to use their woodland and allow open fires.

    i was was looking at that the other day. Lots of wild opportunities where I live, not so areas where I would light a fire
