iiiiiiiits Bivvy Time!
Finally cool enough to hit the woods tonight, first one this autumn. Bike’s loaded, bags packed, and i’ve got my dinky stove from go-outdoors so I can have a luxurious breakfast of instant coffee and a tin of beans & sausages!
Look out for strange lights on the hills above Winchester 😀

I’m new to camp cuisine. Any better suggestions?
Neither require fridging amd both can be boileded in the bag in a few minutes then use the water for your brew 🙂Posted 6 years ago
The LWWF meals are good if you get the ones that are without the added pasta/rice and add a pouch of boil in the bag rice/lentils/mixed grains or some instant noodles,pitta breads etc.
The chilli one with a pouch of those Merchant Gourmet mixed grains and some cake/muesli bars/malt loaf with your coffee does me.Posted 6 years agodoboMember
hmm im curious to know where you bivvy around winch area, wouldnt expect you to say on the forum though. one day i’ll kit up and give it a go.
I was genuinely wondering though if you take a small light to stealth camp or take a couple of thousand lumens bike light like everyone seems to own on these forums 😉Posted 6 years ago
Exposure sell a diffuser dome for the smaller power models, personally I use a cheap AA headlight and a small pound shop type torch for camp use, prefer to keep my bike and camp lighting separate.
Update on the pouch foods – the chilli is 290 cals, the mixed grains 550 so quite a good munch, add cakes etc and you’re well away. Breakfast is usually Oats so Simple plus a sachet or two of jam/honey.
If you don’t want the chore of panwashing, there’s enough room in the grains to pour in the chilli and eat from the pouch.
Lunch from pub/caff/burger van etc….Posted 6 years ago
Left at 5pm, met up with various others on the way, had a hearty meal at the Fox & Hounds at Crawley, followed by too many drinks and banter with a London couple who didnt believe we were kipping in the woods until I showed them my tin of sausage and beans!
Then back down to West Wood for sleep – except my mat had dropped off the bike earlier so I had to go back over Farleigh Mount to find it (it was right at the bottom of course), then back over again to get back to the others. Finally got to bed about 2am.
A little too chilly for my ancient sleeping bag so didnt really get any sleep, but the beans and sausages for breakfast got me going for the 2 hour ride home. Ace night but feeling a little jaded now (no, I haven’t had a kip this afternoon!)Posted 6 years ago
