If you mean "wild camping", then yes - many thousands of people
do this every year.

Tips? Pitch late, strike early - and select a site hidden from
roads and paths.

Good tips. Taken on board.

When you say absolutely no fire - does that include even a trangia
stove for some tea?
And what about drunken yobos? Are they ever a problem, do you know?

???

Well yes, but sometimes they come to you. But I don't know if this is
an issue - that's why I asked.

Leave no trace that you were there to avoid spoiling the place for
those that come after you.

When you say absolutely no fire - does that include even a trangia
stove for some tea?


Stoves are perfectly OK. Beware though that lights might be seen and
thought to be people in trouble. Not really a problem in the summer,
go to bed when it gets dark and you can get up when it gets light. But
long winter nights can be boring without some light to read and play
games by so then you have to make sure you can't be seen.

And what about drunken yobos? Are they ever a problem, do you
know?

Provided you are far enough from a road then they will not be a
problem. The absoloute best way of avoiding them is to get to a good
camping spot and go a little further to the next good place.

Good tip Phil - thanks. Another one I've noticed is to lookout for
those big empty 3 litre plastic cider bottles.

Oh - And while you're at Westminster stick in an expenses form for
us? Ta.
