Glad to support. England’s abundance of walking trails make it easy to stay wild.
Spending More Time in the Wild is even more fun with pets!! Thank you, Abbie, for the inspiration!

Into the wild I go, to lost my mind and find my soul.
I love taking daily walks with my Golden Retriever and going on 8 to 10 mile walks with friends - mostly in Northumberland and Yorkshire. I've done a lot of fell-walking in the Lake District, and have a huge appreciation of our beautiful countryside.
6 months ago I came across a Lake District day walk film made by Abbie Barnes which made me realise I hadn't been near a fell for 2 years, in fact I had stopped participating in all the outdoor activities I enjoyed. My work/life balance had become unbalanced, mental health issues can take many forms, I was never in a dark place, but I did have an illness and it's thanks to Spend More Time In The Wild, Abbie and everyone who supports the project that I was able to recognize I needed help.

"Go where you feel most alive" spend more time in the wild!!
I guess I would call myself a lifelong walker. I live on the prairie in Illinois but spend a large part of the year in the forests and sand dune country of Michigan

I love the outdoors a lot and especially when I feel stressed, or anxious, it's the place I go to to clear my mind. I live close to the water and also the woods and count myself lucky I do. When I leave my house, it's only a few steps until I've escaped the city life and entered the peace and quiet.
I spend 8 hours a day at work staring at a screen with one eye always on the Welsh hills... I can't wait to share some outdoor adventures with my son once he gets a bit older!

The mountains are where I go to breathe. Having had mental health issues my entire life, I discovered that all I needed to do to feel truly calm and in control was to put on a pair of boots and hike like my life depended on it. Thank you Abbie for your inspiration and passion in this project.
Nature means more to me than I could ever put in to words.
Life can be challenging and rewarding at the best of times inspire others and let others inspire you, together we will thrive.

Proud as punch to support the amazing work you do Abbie! As a park ranger I live and breath the ethos of spend more time in the wild. I can't thank enough people like Abbie and her Patreons for what they all do to support our parks and natural places. Our health, in all its forms, depends on the health of our amazing, beautiful and mind blowing natural world. If we all Spend More Time In The WILD and encourage others to do so just imagine the world we can create.
