    Hello to everyone from Nottingham. I have joined the forum to get ideas and inspiration for wild camping, hill walks and anything outdoors.

    I have a few tents, but nothing spectacular and want to learn more about lightweight to ultralight gear without spending stupid money.

    Looking forward to chasing sunsets and sunrises from the summits with my son.

    We’ll soon put a stop to that kind of silliness

    there are plenty of bargains to be had here before spending silly money on new stuff. Quality gear bought second hand is a good way to start.

    Have a look at AliExpress, if you find anything you fancy you'll probably find a review on here. That's the way I went when I joined, they are a knowledgeable bunch.
