    Like someone else posted, I'm a long time listener but new to the forum.  Don't know much about forums, although I did join Reddit a few months back when Jamie had an 'Ask Me Anything' session.  I've been to Britain quite a few times, starting in the late 70's when I was about 20 and we camped for a month, from south to north on the west coast and then back south on the east coast.  On my trips these days, I book an apartment.  I regularly return to some of Jamie's earlier episodes, when I run across something elsewhere and then want to listen again to what he had to say about the same thing.

    Camping in Britain back then was brave!

    Camping was okay, Rich, as we had nice maps that helped us to find campgrounds.  And we met lots of nice campers, too.  I will admit that these days I prefer an actual bed and a shower as opposed to an air mattress and a sponge bath in the communal facilities.  :)

    My brother and I walked across the Lake District many years ago. Must have been circa 1978. We hiked from Keswick to Cockermouth, camping overnight. It was quite a trek. The best part was at the end, when we finally arrived at the youth hostel in Cockermouth, with hot showers and a real bed!
