Hi, Just wanted to say hello to everyone. I've looked through this forum before but never joined, thought it was about time I did. Local spots are the peak district and lakes. I'd also love to explore wales and scotland more in the future (when we are allowed). I don't have the time currently to do mutli-day hikes. So I usually do overnighters, I love to walk a lot, I'll just hike all day long and be happy (then sleep out in the wild). I'm interested in getting my pack into the lightweight realm. I want to be able to walk all day and into the evening without feeling like I'm lugging around a dead weight. I've tried a tarp and bivvy before but I didn't enjoy it as much as a tent. The tick crawling across my pillow didn't help! I probably should have used a bug bivvy (but I don't own one). Not much cash at the moment, so I have to be very careful with gear purchases. I currently have a full set of gear, so it's not stopping me getting out by any means, but some of that is pretty old and heavy now. I really need to change some of it out to lighten up. Doing it bit by bit currently. Excited to tap into all the knowledge on here and make my hikes lighter, safer and more fun!
