Looks amazing! That is not the same tent which you used on PCT?
Can i ask also what you use for a camping mat?
You’re inspiring me to get out and do some of these hikes in UK.
Thank you Kat
No this isn’t the same tent I used on the PCT, that was a non-free-standing tent from Yama Mountain Gear that used my hiking poles instead of regular tent poles. I still have and love that tent, but I just wasn’t sure what the terrain would be like so I decided to take the free-standing tent with me (in case I was camping on concrete etc and couldn’t use pegs). My mat is what I was using on the PCT, a women’s Neoair Xlite. I’ll add a gear list to the blog 😉
There’s so many incredible hikes in the UK, I’m hoping to hike the National Trails next year 🙂
Thanks Kat, look forward to the rest of your blog. I have a Camino planned for October, Salamanca to Santiago. Next year i will definitely plan for some of the UK trails, like the Pennine Way, Hadrians Wall or your recent one, WHW.
