An epic few days to say the least lol
So after do all the introduction, getting lost in the mazz that is Dubai and losing my own body weight in sweat we head over to see wilderness camp about an hour and half drive from north from IMPZ ( home )
Wilderness camp is amazing situated in desert it is small set up designed to give the occupants a feel for living in the wild , whilst the instructors accomadation is air conned and really nice ( see pictures ) the Clints stay in tent that they have to erect and eat using food that they have to cook for themselves as a team using nothing more than gas stove ... Prity dam sweet if u ask me most if not all the instructor have the experience of cooking like this and it was amazing to see what we came up with, just showing off here but i made a curry with home made naan bread and it was f***ing mind blowing lol Ohh and getting to try the bad arse hamock that i have had for soooo long and it was amazing one of the best nights sleep ive had in long with was sweet coz there are slabs softer than the beds here lol
We rescive a few beifs from Carla who is the I.C of training us and getting up to scratch, from here we do i.es, walks, survial training, high rope, archery and sand boarding which is amazing and again a chance to play about and get some air time even if it was not intentional on my part but man i looked good lol from there on in the next day was driving in the desert to see one of the many International walks ( like duke of edinburgh ) which myself and one over insturctor will be taking alot of !! then for the fun heading over to the water about an hr south called Kalba where do the soft water stuff kayak etc I cant remember the last time i got in water and was still sweating in the water its amazing.
On the last day it was an early start to beat the heat and make the 10 km walk aross the desert to be picked up ready to go home for the weekend granted the sun was a b**** and even with my level of fitness and time in the desert this proved to not be and easy task but home we went a hospital to get cheast x-rays and blood sample. The NHS could learn a thing or two here about efficentcy no messing round in and out in like 30mins all 20 of us lol over than getting pushed into lead room with 5 over arabs and told to take my top off ( an offer in over circumstance i would not refuse ) i kind of got the feeling this was wat it was like for the Jew before getting gased ... sorry guys but its true lol .
Well we will see what the weekend brings :)
