....these two lads show you some great skills - from making tin can cookers, preparing and cooking pheasant (of course we know how to do that!!) and packing a hike bag. Cool site - maybe some of you could have a go at something like this?!
Making a Bed Roll ..... not down hill!
A traditional bed roll consists of a single ground sheet, a roll mat, a sleeping bag and camp blanket – rolled and tied up for easy, quick unrolling and portability. It should be waterproof when travelling
outside and transporting between vehicle and tent etc when raining, as it is rolled with the ground sheet providing a sealed outer cover. For further demonstration of this please see one of your leaders. Even if you have other types of bed you need to make sure you can keep your bedding dry. Beware black bin liners rip!
