This blog was written between 2008 and 2016 as part of the camping shop Adverture Centre Ltd and it’s website CheapTents.com. The shop and website have permanently closed but the blog contains popular posts about the outdoors that are still relevant and being read. For this reason the blog has been moved to free hosting on WordPress in order to keep the content available. If you enjoy our posts and/or find them useful, please share on social media and link to us. Thank you!
