Ok, confession time, even though I’ve worked for the Club for over year now, I haven’t actually done that much camping during my adult life. Bad I know, however as a child I was a regular outdoor adventurer; before I’d even turned 15 I’d camped in tents, tree houses and even bivouacs! The latter being during a brief, best forgotten stint as an army cadet!
So at this year’s National Camping and Caravanning Week I leapt at the opportunity to revive that outdoors ethos I had as a child, get back to basics and properly camp without any of the comforts of home.
Then I found out I would be staying in a Camp-let Concorde Trailer Tent, supplied by Camperlands. From the outside we see what appears to be at first glance an everyday, unassuming tent. Then I unzipped the door and entered!
