Eight scouts from around the County were fortunate to spend the day with explorer, adventurer and Scout Ambassador Ed Stafford at his home yesterday. The day was spent learning and enhancing their outdoors skills. We undertook fire lighting, cooking on an open fire, shelter building and hammock & tarp. There were lots of questions for Ed about his adventures and survival and top tips received.
The day was being filmed by the Scout Association for forthcoming video productions – so we will hope to be stars of the small screen!
We also get a mention on Ed’s facebook page.
It was a fantastic day and we would like to thank Ed for giving up his time for us – especially as he had just returned (Friday) from Panama where he was filming for the Discovery Channel.
Here are a couple of initial photos of the day.
