comment Where in Europe is wild camping permitted?
"Wild Camping" seems to have many meanings depending on country and activity. For some, it means parking your motorhome overnight by the side of a main road, but for many others (myself included) it means wilderness camping in mountains, miles from the nearest road, house or other person. And sheep don't issue fines!

@HorusKol: The current UK situation is a bit "H&S gone mad" in some ways. Aspirin for heart attacks is the most obvious critical use. You can 'suggest' to your patient that they take one from their personal kit, or ask another party member for one.

comment Is it legal to light bonfires on UK beaches?
England and Wales are no slightly, but almost TOTALLY different. Unlike Scotland, Wild camping without landowners consent is certainly not legal. (but it's still done, of course...)
