Garden camping

As we are all in lockdown and no idea of when we will get out, I decided to follow the example of a fellow blogger, Matt (https://backpackartist.com) and camp for a night in my back garden.

Normally camping in our back garden would require earplugs to cut out the noise from traffic and aircraft. However, at the moment, everything is eerily quiet. The only thing that disturbed me was the noise of some cats fighting at about 3am.

I used my new Scarp. It reminded me of what a fabulous tent it is. The only problem I had was finding a spot in our garden that wasn’t sloping too much. Just for old time’s sake, I used my Alpkit Pipedream 600 sleeping bag. It was a bit too warm to start with so I used it like a quilt. As it got cooler I reverted to sleeping bag mode. It was nice to sleep outside for a night. Who knows when we will get an opportunity to do it in the wilds.

  1. We love this idea! My daughter would like to expand it out across the country and raise some pennies for the NHS, If its something you’d be open to sharing it’d be great… 🙂 Damon, Sierra Designs & Kelty
