My name is Monica Shaw. I’m an avid walker, camper, and cook. I love to create awesome food experiences in wild places. I also love solitude. I love walking. And I love sleeping in tents.
This website is for other folks like me who want to create awesome experiences in the wonderful outdoors. This includes the best places to camp (campsites and wild camping), backcountry recipes, favourite walking snacks, recipes for dehydrated camping food, perfect packed lunches, and checklists and how-to guides to inspire your adventures and make prep just a little bit easier.
I live in Wiltshire and do most of my adventuring around the UK. Favourite haunts include: the Brecon Beacons, Snowdonia, and Dartmoor.
I get a lot of help with this website from my partner in crime, Andrew, who is always there to encourage my most ambitious food experiments, and to always put a smile on my face when we inevitably get caught in this wonderful British weather. I also share most of my outings with my terrier, Lucky.
