Outdoor Bloggers join together

This is cross posted on a lot of outdoor bloggers sites.

has set-up an e-petition to try and get the Government to legalise Wild Camping in England & Wales

"We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to legalise wild camping in England and Wales. Currently without the landowners consent it is illegal to wild camp on the moors, mountains, National Parks and MOD land. It is time to give people the same rights as those given North of the Border in Scotland to allow them to wild camp in these places without threat of legal action."

The deadline is 24th May 2008; you must be a British citizen or resident to sign the petition.

To get this petition taken serious; it needs a minimum of 200 signatures.

Please pass this to other websites that may have an interest in the outdoors, it needs plenty of support.
