  • Our Top 5 Less Obvious Winter Camping Tips

    November 01, 2018 00:00

    With the right preparation winter camping can be a very special experience.

    1. Weather Updates. 
    A wind-up radio will never let you down. Keep your shelter free of snow and ice and don't allow it to build up. 

    2. Hot Food & Drinks.
    Think soup, stew, porridge, tea, coffee, hot chocolate and hot pear cider.

    Img_68713. Heat.
    Hot water bottles are great for warming up your sleeping bag before use. Don't be tempted to have a campfire too close to your tent, or to heat your tent with noxious b-b-q's.

    4. Be Realistic. 
    Don't book yourself in to a campsite in The Highlands if your kit is really only meant for summer camping, or if you've never been winter camping before.

    5. Entertainment.
    It gets dark early and with fewer folks around to chat with you'll need to consider taking a good book!

    Why bother? Fellow SoulPadder and Facebooker, Sandra Squire explains: -

  • A Day at Latitude

    July 18, 2017 00:00

    Meet Evie. Evie is 15 years old and started a paid work placement with us at SoulPad today. Here Evie reports on her experience at Latitude Festival over the week-end; -

    "The day starts with a car crammed with pillows, snacks and excitement. We were en route to Latitude with a strong lineup and British weather ahead (which to no one’s surprise was a refreshing drizzle and overcast skies.) I was beside myself with joy, despite the pins and needles in my left foot.

    We oozed out of the car and prepared for the trek to find a perfect pitch. Now, professional festival-goers like ourselves insist that one trip from car to camp with our luggage is the only way to do it. And so we did; sleeping bags balanced on arms decorated with numerous bags, we trudged onwards.

    Once we had finally pitched our tents and found one of SoulPad’s own, Mark, who’d gotten lost in the sea of tents, we were ready to hit the festival.

    Latitude 

    Latitude has always been one of my favourite get-aways: it isn’t too far away, has a wonderful line-up and is always so beautiful, and for me it is that exactly.
