    Hello, there are a few of us new members from east Kent way who have joined recently and we're talking about meeting up at some point in the near future, not sure if there's stuff already going on in Kent already? So wondering who's about in Kent or if there's any other Kent or local members on here that may want to come and meet up too? Cheers.

    I'm in.
    I know of a good spot near Canterbury, all we need is dates.
    As a shift worker I normally go out mid week, but can make some weekends if the misses lets me:eek:

    I'd love to be kept in the loop too :D
    I could probably do most days with a week or so notice so I can change my days off for work :D

    But keep me in the loop.

    I'm definitely in, am away now for two weeks.

    I've been to forgewood with the kids, it's near Tunbridge. You can pitch in the woods & use fire. They do have some bushcraft courses run their, very nice.

    I wouldn't describe it as wild camping as it has regular facilities etc.

    It'd be good to meet up so I'm in for anywhere in the county tbh.

    Weekends generally better for me but can juggle work sometimes.

    Hi guys.
    I'm going out for a overnight trip on Mon 1 July.
    I'll be at the carpark from midday(ish) & will return the next day at about the same time.
    If you want to tag along then PM me, if not I'll just go to my stealth camp :cool: for the night.
    At the main camp site I have 2 camp chairs stashed away.
    The walk from the carpark takes about 20 mins, I carry my rucksack with all the kit I need plus 8 cans of beer :rolleyes:.
    OK guys, see you soon.

    Paul

    As much as I would love to
    I can't make that :(
    The lady I work with has chipped a bone in her hand (attempting to steal my gherkins) so I'm working with a trainee who can't be left on her own
    Hope you have a great time though :D

    Hi All. I have just joined the forum. I'm from Rochester and I am a shift worker. I am a bushcraft newbie. Did my first stealth camp last week with a friend. Slowly getting my kit together. I'll be up for a meet up if any more are coming up in the future.

    I may have access to a private bit of woodland near Ashford for a meet, it's a nice spot with a permanent camp set up, it belongs to a friends landlord and he has the keys to it but I can ask if we can use it for a night when the landlord isn't using it.

    We are out at the Wilderness Gathering from 15-18th and the following weekend there seems to be meets all over the place, so not sure.

    Hi everyone, still interested in a meet up for the area. Especially the land in Ashford that was mentioned as I'm an Ashford resident. Cheers Craig
