New Year Camping

So today I’ve been authorised holidays over the New year period.  In retail this is a pure miracle, which only means  one thing I’m going camping.

We have camped for several years now at this time. It’s awesome to bring in the New Year in a field with like minded people and start the year off how we intend to carry it on. The sites however vary, some years we have had lots of other campers or caravanners for company,  though some years have seen us on our own.

We do tend to get the odd remark about being crazy even from the caravanners. Rest assured we are not crazy and as yet have not had bad weather. Though I’d personally love to wake up to a snow covered tent. We own several tents one being a Soulpad 4m ease  which I imagine would look like an igloo with snow upon it.

This year though we will be trying out our new Palamos 6. Having used it during summer and autumn we want to check out it’s coziness in winter. All of our tents are canvas/polycotton of one grade or another no flimsy polyester here. Though to be fair we did start off with one and some of the top brands like OutwellVango have really come along way.



The only thing we have to do now is decide where to go. How far do we travel ? Do we use a CS site or opt for a larger site. Both have their pro’s and con’s. Will the weather be unkind before we leave ? I hope not and if it does decide to snow please let it be after we have pitched.

One thing is for sure though, once we arrive we wont have a care in the world.

Do you camp or caravan at Christmas or New year ? I’d love to read your take on it.

    Winter camping – go for it!

    There are some from the bell tent campers (any brand) on facebook who are going to Stonehenge Campsite.

    You could come here you like? You would have it all to yourselves !

    What do you do for heating?
