Issue 148 Kit Essentials: Sleeping Out

by and 2

Words Amanda, Hannah and as credited Photography as credited Let us try to persuade you that a night outdoors can be a life-affirming experience, rather than one that has you questioning your life choices. While it’s not technically legal to sleep outside in most places in England and Wales, can we please accept that this is a bit of a nonsense?
