Playing catch up on the blogging...

I have managed to miss reporting on the majority of trips this year, so will endeavour to try a bit harder next year...

But here is a quick summary of a few trips this year (I'm pretty sure I've missed loads), which included....

Nantcol 2014, where the 6m was given the French makeover, and Tarquin was trusted with not eating it for 10 days







The bell tent facebook group at Britchcombe in Oxfordshire, where Tarq made a new friend






Stratford Overland Show - not a tent to be seen - Just me, Tillie, Tarq and fox shit





A trip to Hayles Fruit Farm again.  Tarq was impressed with help yourself fruit.  The Toerag got its first use with the inner







A dogless few days at the Wilderness Gathering, near Stonehenge. This time in the 5m Nordisk Tipi.  Where men are men (in skirts) and women are ...well a bit weird.  Made a lot of useless, sorry invaluable crafty things.  Rush mats, gill nets, twine.... and ate...and drank....

Spoon whittling...been 3 years in the making so far..one day..it will be finished...





an invaluable gill net. should I find myself lost, by a river, in need of a stickleback fry up


A weekend doggy sitting at Kingsbury water park...Just me, Tarq and Biscuit..no shoes...no sleep...no peace.... (5m Nordisk Tipi's first trip)









And yet another 3 trips back to Nantcol..!













Finally a foggy trip to Brook Meadow in Northants in November....

stopover in plymouth on the way..
