Solo gear set-up for the South Downs Way

In a few weeks times I’ll be embarking on a solo hike of the South Downs Way. For the first time I’ll be using a tarp for camping and this post describes my solo gear set-up and shows my first attempts at a series of tarp pitches.

Across Sussex on the New Lipchis Way

Blessed with two glorious spring days, I set out with a trusty Jack Russell to walk the 39 mile New Lipchis Way from north to south through West Sussex. It was a stunning and diverse journey that took us deep into ancient rural landscapes and through the heart of the South Downs National Park, before descending to the Cathedral city of Chichester and finally the sea at East Head.
