Hi Martina,

And welcome to the forum. Your not strange - just adventurous!

You will find various single partent/solo meets going on around country (although possibly not for the next few months!!). Just keep your eyes peeled. I organised one this year, but it was just south of York, so might have been too far for you to travel (will be doing one again next year), but there is one next year being organised near Oxford (I think) on one of the other topics. Come along, everyone is welcome.

to Bob57 and anyone else who may be interested:

 

"......Anyway...if there are any adult solo campers of any gender or species who would like to meet the people they talk to online I am quite willing to have a go at organising something in my area. ....."

 

Hi Bob, Kay here, please count me in (if people don't mind dogs, it's 3 of them and all VERY WELL behaved), i attended a wonderful meet at bagwell farm in the spring (i think), it was great and everyone was so understanding as it was my first meet ever. However if you get solo campers (with dogs attached) meets going please let me know. The geographical areas you mentioned are fine with us :)....although we are rather partial to seaside and forest-like places.

Many thanks

Kay, Sky, Axel and Blade

Hi all, ...again...sorry i forgot my manners....i meant to say hi to everyone on here and if anyone (south east or south west preferred in terms of distance) at all has any ideas on solo meets i'd be interested to attend. We (the dogs and i) usually go on our own....but it' ll be great to meet up with like minded people who also usually camp on their own......we could exchange horror and not so horror stories maybe? ;)...besides it'll be good for my dogs to meet with other human creatures whilst camping.....as opposed to being stuck with me all the time. :), take care

Kay, Sky, Axel and Blade

Hi I'm 33 and recently single but determined to carry on camping. Does anyone fancy meeting up in the derbyshire/yorkshire area when the weather improves a bit?

Sandra just keep an eye open for pretty much anything posted on here by Me, Billy 106, Scooby, Brunos mum, or anyone else who posted on the Northern single and solo threads and im sure you will find something you can fit in with.

Hi there All,

I was wondering if anybody managed to get a singles club together for the single 45+ age range of camping and caravanning enthusiasts . . . If so I would love to be part of your meets myself.

Kind regards

In my experience of watching and commenting in the 'Solo' meets boards, Hornetman, Solo/Single parent meets seem to be intended for first time campers or those who are a little shy or nervous of attending the general meets on their own for the first time...especially lone women with children who are quite understandably a little hesitant. The idea being that once they make a few friends within UKCS and find out how the meets are organised and attended, they will be reassured enough to attend the general meets. In fact quite often when people show an interest in solo meets they are encouraged to try a general meet.

I am sure those people who are nervous of attending meets for the first time may well find a solo/single parent meet encouraging and of great help to them, and eventually join in with the general family meets. Many will say they attend both the general and the solo meets and thoroughly enjoy themselves, and good luck to them.

Those of us who enjoy camping/travelling alone and don't particularly want to muck in with families and hordes of kids but would still enjoy meeting up with other lone campers/travellers on occasions to swap stories and experiences over a pint or two seem to be looked upon as a bit of a strange breed - lol.

I doubt whether there are enough of us 'odd bods' within any given area to organise a meet.

A pal and I have been chatting about this as Scotland would be a camping Mecca but from south of Berkshire a bit far north to cart all my soft shell paraphernalia. Maybe a new singles thread entitled ‘Scottish Singles’ may attract a band of Northern adventurers Gabbie👍🏻
