As in the heading, anyone use the Jimny to get to locations for a spot of wild camping?

Great pictures! I've done it a few times and hope to do it a lot more this year. These photos are from trips to Galloway Forest and Skye. I'm not sure where you're based but in Scotland we have really relaxed laws on wild camping apart from when a vehicle is involved, which is very frustrating.

I am down in East Sussex, right on the coast. Wild camping is a challenge in England. Very few places that allow it so most of us go in "Stealth Mode" Local woodland, large parks etc are all fair game if you can hide well enough. :) My photos are from yesterday in the grounds of a local secondary school.

I do lots of wild camping but the Jimny isn't much of an asset for it. Bikes are great, walking is better, motorcycles work too but a car abandoned on a remote roadside is a big beacon telling people you're doing something you shouldn't.

Wild camping in Croatia is not allowed but no one ever got ticketed for doing it. It's a stupid law no one cares about.

I've been camping, bushcrafting and doing "survival" courses for years (I really dislike the term "survival"). Zook just made it easier.

No ware is remote in the south east. I use local woodland sites around the edge of town, so park in the street with the other cars and walk into the woods. :)
