Camping with Style contributors all share a common love of the outdoors, nature, travel and camping, and are all either family or long-time friends. Find out more below.
“I’m at my happiest when I’m outdoors, and I’ve never lost my childish curiosity and desire to explore the outdoors.”
Shell is a full time marketing consultant and a freelance travel writer living in Cheshire with her boyfriend, Alistair and two Persian cats. She has a grown up daughter who’s recently graduated from University and has moved back home.
Shell gets cranky after spending too much time indoors, and is more likely to be found walking up a mountain, photographing fungi in the woods next to her home or walking around the village chasing Pokemon. As well as anything that allows Shell to spend time outdoors, she also loves snowboarding, travel, yoga, walking, photography, music and animals.

“Time and children are both really precious commodities: both seem like daunting challenges even without adding a camping trip into the mix.”
Suse is thirty-something. She juggles an enormously packed life, holding down full time jobs as a business analyst, parent and wife. She is a published scifi author, is about to start a small business upcycling clothing, is working towards a degree, and still crams an amazing amount of activity into the rest of her time including camping (which is how she met Shell). She lives in Nottingham, UK, with her husband, small daughter and a retired racing greyhound.
Suse will contribute to the site by writing articles about how to prepare for camping on an already packed schedule, and how to cope with going camping with a small child in the group.

Alistair Davitt aka Mr CWS or Him Outdoors
“Spending time outdoors is a big deal to me, perhaps even as big a deal as finding out that Neil Gaiman’s American Gods is about to hit the small screen….and that’s saying something!”
Alistair loves the outdoors and is always keen to try new things and go on the next Camping with Style adventure. He loves testing technical gear and often accompanies Shell when she goes walking or camping, dealing with the tedious finer details that include navigation, and remembering to pack the tent pegs and mallet…which come to think of it usually get left behind. Hmmmmm.

“Never let your dog put out your camp neighbours BBQ, it’s generally not appreciated…”
Tiffy is one of Shells sisters, and is a talented signer-songwriter living in the Midlands. She and her boyfriend have two dogs and a boat, and love messing about on the river equally as much as long walks with the doggy-boys. Tiff is also a keen camper who shares Shells philosophy of camping in style, and she contributes to this blog by writing about camping and getting outdoors with dogs.
