Spent Saturday night alone in the woods nice and comfortable it was as well.
Missed my usual buddies but someone has to get out there and count the trees.
I didn't have far to carry my gear but at my age I was puffing by the time I stopped at my destination, after catching my breath (I have asthma) I made a monkey boy brew and scoffed a buttered bun, Anchor butter, yum yum, only had a few minutes to climb further into the woods where there is a flat Plato and lots of beech leaves on the ground, trouble was I didn't have the strength to get up there, so I stayed where I was.
Pictures of my tarp set up shows how and where I slept, the ground sheet was placed over the fallen tree and attached by some nails that were left by previous people, this enabled me to rest against it whilst sleeping as the ground fell away towards the tree.
Had a fairly good night in the summer weight sleeping bag inside Mill Com bivi bag.
Picture of the food is what I had for evening meal, I had the same for breakfast plus plenty of fruit.
The dawn chorus was well worth the trekking up hill the day before, blooming marvellous it were, heard the badgers as there are plenty in this part of the wood but no sight of them unfortunately.
