Army Cadets

Both my boys have joined army cadets in the last few weeks. This weekend is their first camping trip and they are so excited. They used to be in scouts when we lived in Ireland so camping isn't new to them, however this time they are not using a traditional tent. The army here uses a hoochie. What is that you may ask? It is basically a tarp, some string, and a few pegs!

They had to pack their own food for this trip and each of them carries a small stove to cook on. Just in case they can't get it working all of their essential food can be eaten cold!

I wonder if they have settled in ok tonight as it was dark when they would have arrived.


  1. They are looking as if they're looking forward to it!

  2. I hope they had a brilliant time. My boys have done some 'back woods camping' no saucepans, just what can be cooked in the fire in foil and making a 'bivowack' to sleep in. Great stuff!


Thanks for taking the time to brighten my day :-)
