Tonights blog post is brought to you by the young leaders who clearly are not being worked hard enough!
We were aroused early by the sound of local wildlife and the harmonious singing of the indigenous birds. After the deafening cacophony, we slowing dragged ourselves from the warmth of our makeshift abodes, beginning the dreary trudge to the main tent. Wiping our eyes of sleep, we were met by our local guide who had prepared a large and bountiful meal which was made from the finest local produce.
After our large feast, the pack was rallied as they were informed of an early morning tent inspection, during which time the heavens opened in the form of a slight drizzle, it was as if the sky was falling.
The subsequent rush to prepare for the day’s adventures caused some to realise they had left behind vital supplies however with the cooperation of the natives, the supplies were temporarily replaced in a good natured trade – improving prospects of future relations.
The pack then received a care package of high sugar rations, distributed by the natives, to improve their physical prowess during the days upcoming challenges; the gladiator challenge and king’s sport (locally known as ‘AeroBall’).
Following the first set of trials, the heroic pack returned to base camp where they feasted on lunch fit for an adventurer. After this brief interlude, they returned to the challenge which they had not yet come across.
Upon their return some members of the pack, guided by the natives, constructed makeshift shelters in the local fashion. After a second sugary ration, the constructions were finished and so too were the clay models.
Following this, the pack retired to the main tent for the day’s final meal – tuna pasta – made from freshly brought Ikea tuna and a tomato sauce. With this last burst of energy, they went on a tour of the local area before settling down in front of the roaring fire with a warm hot chocolate.
They now retire to their shelters to replenish their energy stores in time for tomorrow’s adventures.
But seriously, it’s been a good day at camp and everyone is enjoying themselves.
Love and hugs the young leaders.
