About Us

When Nicholas and I embarked on our camping journey, I had no idea what an incredible adventure awaited us. The abundance of information out there seemed both confusing and demanding, making it feel like camping was an expensive endeavour. Finding the answers I needed quickly and easily proved to be a challenge. That’s when I realized I had to take matters into my own hands and share my wealth of knowledge by creating this website.

How I started my camping journey

Let me take you back to the beginning of my camping escapade. For the longest time, I had been declining Nicholas’ invitations, convinced that camping wasn’t my cup of tea. I cherished my luxurious vacations abroad, basking in the guaranteed sunshine rather than dealing with the unpredictable UK weather.

Everything changed one fateful day when I returned a pair of school trousers and unexpectedly walked out with a tent priced at a mere £45. The surprise on both Nicholas’ face and mine was priceless.

With a tent in hand and no clue about the essentials, I was determined to make our camping holiday a budget-friendly adventure. And let me tell you, it turned out to be one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.

Why you should give camping ago

Now, let me share with you why you absolutely must give camping a shot. We often overlook the beauty and history that the UK has to offer, and I believe it’s crucial to expose Nicholas to as much of it as possible.

Camping allows us to disconnect from the chaos of everyday life, relieving the stresses of work and home. Unplugging from technology, especially prying Nicholas away from his beloved iPad and PC, instantly earns camping a huge thumbs up in my book.

The true essence of camping lies in spending quality time with Nicholas in a natural environment. It’s about embracing the freedom of running wild and exploring without worrying about getting a little dirty. It’s an opportunity to connect on a deeper level and create lasting memories.

We hope you enjoy our website

We sincerely hope you enjoy exploring our website, as Nicholas has been an incredible help in building the Pitchup Outdoors platform. He even aspires to share his own diary on the site soon!

While we may not have a YouTube channel yet, we’ve been hard at work capturing various moments on film. Our videos aren’t just informative but also filled with fun and laughter. We’re eager to share our experiences, whether they’re extraordinary or challenging. We believe in providing an honest and authentic perspective.

Join us on this exhilarating journey, and let’s make the most of every camping adventure together!
