Took seven of my workmates out for a pleasant little overnighter with some wild swimming and a pub supper (and LOTS of ticks.... and bilberries)
Had three newbies, with no experience or gear, so I had my work cut out. So I thank mike for finding the time to get some photos.

Looks like a great trip out. If you're organising any more overnights with hammocks in North Devon, I'd be interested in tagging along. Still haven't fully sorted my gear out but I have enough I think to cobble together a working system. Just haven't tried camping in it, just hanging out in the woods occasionally.

Well... if you can cope with ripe language and boyish silliness (firefighters are the same the world over), you are most welcome.
Don't sweat the gear, I can usually be relied upon to dig something out.

Well, I worked offshore oil for several years and the film industry for several more, I'm sure I'll cope Smile
