News Flash

Just today a new dinosaur was discovered in deepest South Yorkshire.  It is believed to be the only one of it's kind ever to be discovered.

Look - it's a Rucksackasaurus

It enjoys walking in Derbyshire

Camping and practising for a Duke of Edinburgh Bronze award.

On my goodness how we have laughed.  Belle has packed so much stuff in her rucksack she can barely move - she actually fell onto her back and couldn't get up - as she said she is not a quitter - and she struggled and struggled until she got up.  It was so funny.  There is a problem though her pack is full of water, food, chocolate, tent and tent pegs.  When I asked her if she had put any clothes in NO was the answer, when I asked her if she had put any eating implements or crockery in NO was the answer -Oh my word she declared I am so unorganised and then she dissolved into fits of laughter.  Has she tried her walking boots on No not for about 3 years - Oh Dear!

Go Belle!
Like your style...especially since you've put chocolate before clothes! Get a clean pair of harvest festivals in there and you're good to go!

I will never forget the smell of my son and the stuff that fell out of his rucksack when he returned from his DoE silver walk. A good time was had by all and I am sure Belle will have a brilliant time. Ax

I completed my Bronze D of E camping challenge the week before Charles & Di's wedding! We survived on sausages and choc! Loved every minute of it. Hope she has a fab time. x
