This was my first time ever going to Gilwell, yet alone Gilwell Reunion, so I wasn't really sure what to expect.
I camped with Rosie, Rich and the rest of the Freespirit ESU gang from Wales; and after my late arrival the night before it was a pleasure to wake up the bacon butties (a pleasure purely reserved for camp)
|And buying one of these... part of their fundraising efforts for the Jamboree.|
"ooo, that looks interesting..." *picks up leaflet and shoves it in bag*
"We could adapt that to work" *shoves more leaflets in bag*
*waits for freespirit people as they are selling stuff to random people*
"You heard of that before?" *grabs more bits of paper- which, if I am honest, I will most likely not look at again- and shoves into ever bulging bag*
But it wasn't just leaflets gallore, at a load of them you got to actually try out the activity as well.
Like making edable campfires....
|Nom nom nom|
|... and this was after me spending about 10minutes scrubbing them!|
And a campfire... although it was a sit down one, didn't want any of the old dears to pop a hip now did we? The guy running it was brilliant tho, really funny
That and getting to see a load of my friends from past adventures again... some of which I havn't seen in about 3 years, which is just shockly long.
Was a fantastic weekend, lots of ideas on offer and some very very good company
