To Bivvy or to camp?

by backpackingbongos

Thankfully the weekend is fast approaching which means that not long until our Lake District backpack.  Typically the weather for the weekend is for heavy showers and much colder nights.  This means the prospect of a bivvy (wordpress spell check wants me to change this to bevvy) on a mountain top is not looking as appealing as it did a couple of days ago when the sun was shinning!  I think being safely sealed up in a tent is going to be a much more fun option.  Still aiming to pitch on a summit both Fri and Sat night.  If you see two bearded men wondering around the Great Moss in upper Eskdale say hello!
