A couple of ideas:

Firstly, were you the guy who was interested in the Hampshire 'fill the 
gap' footpaths party (southern England) ? If so I still have that in mind 
possibly for the weekend of 21/22 Sep but need to check availablilty of a 
couple of other people.
It's lowland (no mountains) but quite hilly and nice countryside, and 
could achieve a continuous swathe of mapped footpaths across southern 
England over 50 miles or so. Not sure about camping though.

I did also have an idea for a Black Forest (Germany) party but it hasn't 
happened due to limited interest - time to resurrect that?
