Bushcraft Weekend (Day 3)

[This is a continuation from DAY 1 & DAY 2 ]

It’s the last day of the weekend.  Aside from the horrible rain last night, which finally let up around about 3am, it’s been a fantastic weekend.  I don’t know when I got to sleep and stayed asleep, sometime after 3 when rain finally stopped, but I woke up at around 715am, which was good because we need to assemble about 730 for breakfast and find out what we’d be doing for the morning.  The course ends at noon, so we didn’t have too much time today.

Bushcraft Weekend (Day 2)

(this is a continuation from Bushcraft Weekend (Day 1) … Please read that first )

*YAWN* Good morning.  Sleeping was pretty rough.  I think partly because I’d had a coffee about 9pm and a hot chocolate about  around 11, I suppose.  It could also have been just the totally different environment from my normal sleeping quarters haha.  One of the things that kept me up was the sound of the A420 not too far from the camp, also there was some animal out prowling around for about 3 hours making on hell of a racket.  Many of us had compared notes on this in the morning.  As the instructors camp was about 10 mins walk through the woods from us they said they’d not heard anything.

Oh well on to the day…
