Back from the Lakes


I returned from my Lake District trip yesterday and will write a post this week. Unfortunately it was rather less ambitious than I had planned because I had a problem with my back and the weather was a bit iffy. Actually the weather was better than the forecast with the wind not as strong as predicted. Although I had some heavy rain, it was nearly all at night.

I had three great wild camps and an interesting walk along some less frequented paths. I was glad I used the Nitro Lite 200, as I think I would have struggled on two pitches to find enough reasonably flat ground to pitch on with the Trailstar.

I also found out a bit more about the capabilities of the Nitro, including making one mod while I was out. I’m mulling whether to make quite a major mod which might make a significant difference in strong winds. The picture is from Stoneycroft Gill looking east to Brandelhow, Castlerigg Fell and Great Dodd at dawn.

  1. Looks like you had a good trip glad the weather was better than expected.Looking forward to the full write up

  2. It’s a lovely area that. I’ve had some nice wild camps along Rigg Beck which is just south of Stoneycroft Gill.

      1. Its tempted me a couple of times I have to admit but at the moment my luxury tent for 1 is the TN Solar Comp 2

      2. I’ve just had a clear out of some base layers and windproofs. Horrified at how many I’ve got. 😦
