Thanks for sharing folks! I'm very jealous of those of you who have more trips planned this year!

Mucker & DK some of those photos are "Christmas Card" quality!
I would love to be greeted my a crisp frost or low, rising mist as I come out of my hibernation (sleeping bag and layers).

I'd like to try the winter camping, but I'm worried I'd never get my tent fully dry afterwards and get mould. Am a bit paranoid about that, even if the tent is packed dry I still pitch it and air it for an afternoon ASAP afterwards. I guess I could buy something small and cheap so I don't worry about it for the winter!

The winter months can be great! You get spoiled having campsites virtually to yourself and the weather can be glorious if the sun shines. It's my ambition to camp in the snow but haven't managed to find any yet when I've been camping.

I would say some form of heating is a good idea, be that EHU, camp fire or woodburning stove installed in the tent, but there's a real thrill to being out there in the crisp weather and knowing you can keep cosy day and night.

There are certainly those of us who go camping on our own if no one else wants to join us, although a bit of company makes all the difference.

I was a bit unsure about the cooler months but just tried it each month to see how late in the year I could keep going till, and found it was possible all year with the right kit. Try it - you'll be hooked!

Crazy woman camping by herself on New Year's Day last year!

I'd love to camp in the snow just for the experience - but have to book my holidays 18 months in advance! So for one reason and another our camping trips are from May to October.

So we're off to Shropshire in 10 days for a week and then a week in October (originally North Devon, but has now changed to South Wales - the Brecon Beacons have called again!)

I'm hoping that with the news that we're going to have a little heatwave next week that it might, in fact, carry over to the next week - as last time we went to Shropshire it was cold and rained most of the time.

But, as you have seen, many people camp all times of the year and some on their own and they thoroughly enjoy it. It's just a matter of changing your clothes to warmer ones - especially for night-time.

Oooh, yes! Camping is so relaxing and is a different pace to normal life - I just love to sit and read in the evening and not just one or two chapters like at home, I can get really engrossed in my murder(s)!

Carry on enjoying it - it becomes part of you after a while and once it does - you will definitely be a regular on this site asking for advice/information on all the different gadgets and gizmos!!
