Studland, Dorset – February 2016 Microadventure

I decided to skip January but was refreshed and ready for another wildcamp night out. We’ve been to the coast and a lovely area in Dorset.


We had found some woods on the map but wanted to check them out before night time to make sure they were suitable and out of freezing cold wind. After a good walk we found a good spot and headed to the local pub for a few pints, dinner and the rugby.


Once it was dark we headed back to our spot in the woods and got our beds ready. I’ve brought a new matt – Alpkit Dirtbag and it was really comfortable. It takes up twice as much space as my Numo but it was worth it for a comfortable night. I’ll save the Numo for the bike-packing adventures.

The woods we were in was covered with wild garlic so by the morning we were infused!

It was pretty cold and still very windy in the morning at sunrise. It was still quite cloudy so we did get much of a sunrise. But still had an amazing view.






A year of Microadventures ( bit of a catchup from last year)

I’ve been a bit slack on keeping my blogs updated at the end of last year. We did complete the year of Microadventures! What an experience.

October in a different local woods.

November we rode up to Greenham common and had a wet and windy night without much sleep

December was a Christmas special with a fire, chestnuts, mulled wine, a barrel of homebrew and some light sabres! Well Star Wars was in the Cinema.




Now onto 2016!
