Hi From Norfolk

Postby Dave and Verity » Fri Jul 11, 2014 7:26 am

We've just aquired a couple of plots in Kettlestone near Fakenham. We plan to use it for firewood, and general enjoyment/relaxation. Very new to woodlands, so any tips/advice welcome. We camp out regularly in a motorhome with the kids and our Lurcher pup. The kettles never far away, feel free to pop over for a brew.

Welcome

Enjoy the peace and quiet

How long before you swap a motorhome for a Hammock and Tarp

Kelly Kettles are good

Welcome. Sounds great. I'm a newbie woodlander too so I know how you must feel - chuffed to bits and maybe a bit bewildered too

An eternity, I started camping about 30+ years ago, my first tent was 24" high at the front and 18 at the back. I used to carry enough food and clothes for a week and walk long distance footpaths. Verity used to come along with me after we met, she's 5' 3" and looked completely wrong carring a 15kg pack, mine was 20 -25. Nothing compared to military standards, but for fun it was enough.

As life has gone on, our backs and knees have decided they like a bit of squishy underneath them, tents got bigger up to the point where a trailer and planning permission was required. Then we got the motorhome, never looked back.

I like to doze in a hammock, especially when I've had an afternoon cider and remember neighbours from many a year ago having a Lurcher that used theirs whether it had a human in it or not. Happy days. I shall hang one up somewhere, and dissappear for a while now and again.

Oh and bewildered, definitely.
