This Ranger is an amazing one and did do 90% of the effort.
The 'new' tent went to camp for the first time. It is incredibly heavy and takes some putting up but once up that girl ain't shifting no matter the weather! There is also a lot of room inside for all the kit and 3 seperate bedroom areas.
Bushcraft fun with them.
They feathered wood with knives. They lit fires with fire steels using tampons, vaseline and corn chips - basic stuff they might have in their back packs.
The sieve method failed and they actually ended up just putting oil covered kernels into 'a bag of' tinfoil on the fire and it popped very well.
There were a lot of people on the site. Another Guide group made this brilliant swing.
A lovely summer afternoon in a field. No better place to be.
