Hello South Coast Yes Tribers
Join us for out first Yes Tribe South Coast campout in Sussex. Whoop whoop
Stories from the Wild – we are combining an evening under the stars camping out in a nature reserve and listening to YesStories from the Wild .
Adam Cunningham White has just returned from the Artic – he will be telling a few stories of his life working and living as a Sami Reindeer Herder in the Swedish Arctic / Sápmi and what he learned from the herdsmen and elders of the tribe around the fire.
We are planning to run each campout this summer with a story from the wild under the stars to hear and learn the way other cultures live as communities and what we can learn from their elders.
Let’s meet at Haywards Heath Station at 6.30pm on Thurs 22nd March and we will take you to the secret spot in the nature reserve
The campouts work where you bring a little food and drink, we spend a little time getting to know each other and then campout for the night and then we return to the station at 7am and back into work the next morning.
Folks can come from Brighton 20 mins train or London 40 mins or if driving meet at the Haywards Heath station
I haven't checked the train times yet but we'll meet outside Haywards Heath Station at 6.30pm . Please let us know if you are coming
Please bring some food/drink to bring with you and please remember our minimal (or even better, no!) single use plastics.
Recommended kit list below.
NO tents, please - we want to stay low level!
Recommended Packlist (playing this on the cautious side and this list is for a full weekend, so pick and choose what you think you need for a night under the stars)
* Backpack. No larger than 40 litres. Ensure it fits!
* Waterproof stuff sack or two to ensure things inside backpack remain dry in case of rain. Especially important if backpack doesn’t have a waterproof cover.
* Shelter: Either a hammock (with rainfly) or bivvy bag (Bivvy is a waterproof cover for your sleeping bag - it’s the lightest, most low-profile form of wild camping). Your choice if you'd like to bring a tarp, too, if rain is threatening it's nice to have some cover.
* Sleeping bag: At least three season for British spring. Don’t underestimate the importance of your sleeping bag.
* Sleeping pad/ mattress: This provides extra comfort and insulation
* Walking boots/ shoes
- Padded walking socks
- Breathable waterproof jacket.
- Waterproof trousers, if rain is forecast
- Lightweight, active clothing to hike in. Base layer, top layer (could be waterproof jacket), lightweight trousers
* Change of clothes, including warm, thermal layers. During less-active camp time you will need dry, warm insulating clothes such as woolen tights and undershirts, dry socks, a light down jacket or a woolen jacket/pullover and warm trousers. Don’t forget a warm hat and light but warm gloves if temperature forecast for less than 18 degrees
* Basic first aid kit (campout leader will carry one of these)
* Re-usable water bottle. Minimum one. Ideally two.
Pack light. You can pack in case of all conditions but a too-heavy pack will decrease your enjoyment of the trip. Main priority is to ensure you stay dry and warm in case of poor weather.
