SoulPad Sponsors 6 Months in Scotland Wild Camp

February 15, 2013 19:00

Armed with a SoulPad 4000-ease, our new best friend Wayne Hall is soon due to set off into the sunset for 6 months of wild camping.

"With just my dog (Jerry) for company I'll be braving the Scottish elements for 6 straight months starting on Feb 27th 2013 & finishing on the 27th Aug.

I see this as a great opportunity to raise some funds for the very worthy 1charity 'Shelter' who do immense work nationwide helping families & individuals in times of real need.

The self-employed Tiler, who lives near the Peak District, decided to embark on the adventure of a lifetime after discovering that his rented cottage was about to be sold.

He said: “The idea of the trip really reared its head last September after spending a few days wild camping in Galloway Forest Park at Loch Moan.”

“I heard the news just after returning from Loch Moan that my home was to be sold by the landlords in the spring of 2013 — therefore a long trip became a real possibility.”

“Whilst we're camping out in the wilds, (where we tend to spend the vast majority of our time) we'll be as close to nature as you can get which will give me a unique opportunity to photograph, film & document nature & learn more about our native species like never before, plus Jerry will be loving every minute...one lucky dog on a 6 month vacation.”

“I'll be submitting reports throughout the trip & any special points of interest, rare species etc to the RSPB for Scotland, Scottish Wildlife Trust & the Forestry Commission who all claim to be just a little envious of my marathon trip to the wilderness......let's not forget it's Scotland we're talking about....almost double the rainfall of England & 'biblical' numbers of insects that live to bite you! Wish us luck & sincere thanks for your support.”

We wish Wayne & Jerry a successful trip and look forward to hearing how the SoulPad fared.
