The most important camping trip of the year

The most important camping trip of the year

Undoubtedly we all have key dates and events and destinations in our outdoor adventure program (if you plan, like me, too much sometimes). For us THE key event of the year is the PMC - the pre-midge-camp. Or even more the L-PMC, the last-pre-midge-camp. You cannot set a date for it, because you do not know when the dreaded little monsters of the Highlands start to emerge, but from early spring onward you are acutely aware that you must not waste any opportunity for camping or you might find yourself one day with loads of itching regrets!

May is full of bank holidays in France, or rather, 'Jours Feries'.....affectionately known as Fairy Days in this house. Last week, the Fairy days fell on Tuesday (Victory day) and Thursday (Ascension), and, as is often the case, most of the schools declared the Friday also as a day off, or a 'pont' (bridge) day, (i.e. Bridging the gap to the weekend).

It’s a firmly established tradition that we have at least one campfire at the beach each summer. What was different this year, was the Harry pretty much took charge of the whole thing, assisted in a range of helpful and not so helpful ways by Chloe. Here’s their step-by-step guide to a successful campfire.

First Proper Camp

First Proper Camp

Dora had her first camping experience in our camper van in February in North Wales when she was 3 months old. We drove up enthusiastically only to find that all the campsites were either shut for the winter and looked at us like we were crazy, or didn't take dogs.
