Camping spots for falses.
It seems like an absolute age since I was last on here, and since I was last in the hills... Unfortunately I've been part-taking in the hijinks and tomfoolery that my 15/16-year-old self once protested against so fervently on this very site; namely drinking and pursuing women. Those posts were utterly tragic, I'd been listening to far too much Morrissey. Why didn't somebody tell me to wise up? (Not to stop listening to Morrissey, that is!) No doubt those old posts will be used against me in the future. Anyway, despite all that and the fact that I'm a big 18 year old "adult" now with a slightly less innocent view on everything, what still remains from those old posts is my perpetual passion for the hills, albeit slightly obscurred and buried beneath all the other aforementioned distractions that one is faced with. Now; in an attempt to combine both my love for the hills as well as drinking and pursuing women, could anyone recommend any decent camping spots in the Mourne's that one could: A) Get to relatively easily, as moaning non-walkers and the weight of one or two beverages will need to be taken into consideration... and B) Would be relatively "out of the way"? I'm trying to introduce a few friends to the hills and I want to ease them into it so to speak ie. with the help of Hoegaarden. My initial thought was to perhaps camp towards the "back" of the Annalong Wood, on the Dunnywater side if that makes sense. However I haven't been up that direction since last Summer and I'm unaware of what the current situation is there - by that I mean if the scummy feckers have succeeded in burning down the entire wood yet! Ideally I'd love to spend the day walking before slave-driving my friends to the top of Doan and camping there but I'm not sure if I could stick the constant gurning and complaining that it would inevitably entail. So if anyone has any suggestions for a suitable muggle-friendly place to camp then fire away. Oh, and before it's said - ALL empty bottles and rubbish will be taken back with us, no trace will be left. I've been on far too many litter lifts of campsites and my blood has been boiled far too many times to engage in any of that aul carry on! Cheers in advance.
