Woodland Wild Camp with Kent Survival. Tarp and Bivi. Ribs, Cornbread, Devilled Kidneys, Scones.


In this video, I leave Norfolk and head off on a trip south to meet up with Andy from @Kent Survival in his woodland permission. We set up our shelters, Adirondack tarp shelter for me and hammock for him, before doing the other camp tasks and settling down to an evening of catching up, a rib and cornbread dinner, a few beers and a few laughs. The morning brings fine weather and a chance to enjoy the beautiful woodland, followed by a breakfast of devilled kidneys and scones (my take on biscuits and gravy).

Please do pop over and check out Andys video!

It was great to catch up and make plans for future adventures – thanks mate!

I hope you enjoy the video.

Thanks for watching!
