Sounds like you and the lads had a great time. All that bonding away from there mums!
Just wondering, are the tents TN Laser Comp 1's? As that's what I use when I'm on my own. I've been thinking about taking my had away, he's only 4 but already loves the outdoors.
My only worrie is, that as something that I love and what him to love it to. And if he hates wild camping I'll be gutted. But then again he might love it, which will mean that I'll never get away on my own.
Back in the day, at the right old age of 15. I thought nothing of hitch hiking to north wales for the weekend with a fiver to my name. Which is'nt to bad as I lived in Glasgow. A the days when kids were safe.
Me and a couple of mates headed up Grinds Brook from Edale. Then across to the Kinder Gates, and on the Downfall.
We then headed on to the trig point at 078893. Before turning towards Fair Brook. As we then headed back towards Grinds Brook we came a cross a husband and wife crying, when I asked what was wrong they said that they were lost, they pointed in the direction that we had come and asked if that was the way to Grinds Brook.
I said no! And pointed in the direction we were heading.
They then asked what time the helicopters came, I said what helicopters? And they replied the ones that come round to make sure everyone is of the hill before dark!
Any way it turns out that have had been wondering a round for hours lost. They had a GPS, no fuxxxx idea how to work it, no map or compass.
So we walked them back to Grind Brook and there nice car. And as they pulled out of the car park the guy rolled down this window and asked which was the best was to Derby. I gave him dircetions to Shelfield and wished them good luck.
