Outdoor Survival Mission

Leon decided it was important to take only five items for the overnight camp – after much discussion it was decided that the five items be :
Sleeping bag
Tent
Camping Stove
Soup
Matches
I pointed out that water was missing – but Leon pointed out that they could get water from the outside tap.

Essentially the idea was to accomplish outdoor survival for 12 hours….

They set up the tent..

..and so the evening began…

…with communal cooking of the soup..

…picking and collecting of the salad…

…and eating, of course…

Well, Alfie didn’t quite make it through the night, but of course Leon and Maya did – though early morning didn’t really go as planned… Maya woke at 4.30am, and couldn’t go back to sleep due to hunger….
Lessons learned ;
1) Don’t skimp on food
2) Don’t put the tent up next to the road
“Probably easier to do it alone next time”, said Leon ‘Grylls’ … 😉
