THE MAN IN THE TENT is Tony Beardsall’s lively, informative account of his life since moving under canvas at the age of fifty-one. In this volume he relates the first four years of his outdoor odyssey, from his initial escapist trips, through his gradual move towards full-time outdoor living, to his decision to put the harsh British winters behind him and head off to the more benign climate of southern Spain. Sincere but light-hearted, this memoir recounts his experiences in Lancashire, Yorkshire and Scotland, alongside the mental journey leading to his conviction that a conventional life is no longer for him, despite the well-meaning advice of his family and friends. The second part of Tony's story is now available: The Man in the Tent: My Life under Canvas - Getting Started in Spain

    I spent four years sleeping in my car, but nothing happened worth writing a book about. Just people from the council would come and shout at me.

    *edit* well, there was that one time I got up in the morning and London was deserted, like it had been invaded by zombies or Daleks in the night. Turned out there had been a shooting and I was sleeping inside the area the police had cordoned off. (edited)

    I really enjoyed reading this. Probably a better read than his books that followed

    I've not read his other books but, like you, I really enjoyed reading this one. We'll worth it for a freebie.

    There was me, getting excited to hear about Adam from Eternia being turfed out of the palace and having to live in a tent with Cringer. But no, it was a typo….. 🥲 (edited)
