Welcome to the newly created 'Out and About' forum. Some of you have been asking for a place to post about your travels etc and here it is. :D

This forum is for info about places, questions, answers and blog like threads. The whole idea is to build up a forum about places and information on places, not just in the UK but the world over.

Great idea. Now we can all brag about our holidays! :lmao: Seriously though this is a great idea. It might be useful if people listed places they have been to and are willing to share info./ give advice about for the benefit of others. :)

Just a thought, could we have a 'sites' sticky (kind of like the 'links' sticky in the resources section) to build up a list of bushcraft friendy camp sites and other accommodation?

Hello

I am planning a trip to the eastern part of Norway. the national park is called femundsmarka. I have never been before but from what i can find out it seems a pretty wild place. I'm going in late november to early december so there won't be much daylight. Its also going to be pretty cold though I expect the lake, femunden, won't be frozen over so early in the season. It at 62 degrees and 600m and above. I have been building up to this trip for some time but would welcom any nuggets of advice experience or even stories of camping in the freezer is all about. Or if you have any questions or are just curious.

Hello :) , how are ya? , I wouldnt think a National Park would be a wild place really, There will always be trails and lodges and ranger/park keepers about so you will be safe, and camping in a freezer advice? Umm From when i was in scotland i started shoveling snow with all my layers on and i was young and started swetting and could have died without guidance, so my advice before you do anything physcial take a layer off :p

Thanks all, its all to easy to forget about things like not getting sweaty. I just read a book about the eveny reindeer people. i guy dies because he left his tent without removing his thick outdoor coat, he only intended to leave the tent for a short time, which is ok but his tent burnt down and so he lost his warm coat. he was only a few miles from a village. if the indigenous folk can get it wrong, the likes of me have to be extra carefull

Hope to be visiting Amsterdam soon, and looking for any information on what not to miss apart from the Tulip gardens, Are there any good Bushy type shops there, whereI might get a souvineer related to our type of outdoor activities. Time will be fairly limited when there unfortunately, but will be good as a taster for possible longer visit later.

i did start a new thread but i didnt see this bit first! duh, so i have pasted it here.

Hello all,

We have been posted to RAF Brize Norton and wondered if anyone had any places that we could go walking around and possibly camp in?

My Husband grew up on Portland and i grew up in the west country, we want to re-discover the beautiful country side that we live in and miss so much.

we want to walk and possibly camp.

Any suggestions?

many thanks

Leanne

I have now been in the wilds of Bulgaria for two years and everyday is perfect. Four proper seasons and loads of wild locals to watch.
There is a free right to travel here and no-one stops you to ask why you are there or what are you doing. The only rules are buy a fishing permit for 30 levs about a tenner for the year and you can fish and take home from the rivers.
Anyone up for a trip let me know.
