Wildcamping – fuelling the fire.

Once upon a time, in a land not too far away, the verb ‘wildcamp’ didn’t really exist. You may now be saying “but I wildcamped ten, twenty or even thirty years ago ” and for many of us, that is true but for most who did, that act was rarely the goal or prime objective. […]
