Adventures of A Wild CamperUnknown - 2013
I'd become officially addicted to what I called 'extreme sleeping' - a kind of addictive high-adrenaline sport--but rather than being defined by pushing the boundaries of physical activity, my particular pursuit was marked by a distinct lack of it. Challenged by a cocky Australian in Woolloomooloo, veteran globetrotter Phoebe Smith sets out to prove that the extreme camping experiences available in the UK could rival anything found elsewhere in the world. In this sometimes scary, frequently funny and intriguing journey around the country, Phoebe attempts to discover and conquer its wildest places. From spending the night in the decaying wreckage of a World War Two bomber at Bleaklow to pitching next to the adrenaline-inducing sheer drop of Lizard Point, Phoebe's extreme sleeps defy her perceptions of the great outdoors and teach her about herself along the way. AUTHOR: Phoebe Smith is a travel editor, writer and author of dramatic landscapes and wild places has taken her on adventures all around the world. Author of 'The Camper's Friend', Phoebe also regularly writes for Trail, Country Walking, The Guardian, Wanderlust and Australia and New Zealand Magazine. When she's not planning her next escapade, she is most likely to be found in the mountains, powered by nothing more than her own feet.
