Squatters

It was a fine night last night so it was simply a matter of having my sleeping bag out on the ground and going to sleep under the stars. Perfect, or it would have been if it had not been for the Police Helicopters flying about overhead for about two hours and stopping me from being able to sleep. By the time they left it had started to get cold so I pulled up the hood of the sleeping bag, something bit be on the ear I brushed it away. A short while later something bit me on the eye lid, so I brushed it away again. Something bit me on the ear again; again with the brushing away. After about five minutes of being bitten I gave up on the hood and slept with my head in the cold. Occasionally during the night I would pull the hood up so as to keep warm, it would soon be taken off again.

Did a few press ups in my sleeping bag this morning so I would be warm enough to get out of the sleeping bag.

I’ve been reading your blog for a week now and I have a lot of respect for what you are doing, especially as the cold nights are coming. I’m going to put a link on my blog and give some money to the woodland trust. I noticed you’ve been using wet wipes for washing up etc. isn’t there something a bit less disposable you could use? But then again if all your weekly rubbish amounts to just a few wet wipes I don’t suppose its that big a deal.

Have run out of wet wipes and I'm now using evian!
