In the evening there was a blind-fold trail that, as the evening progressed, simultaneously got easier (vegetation more trampled) and harder (it rained, making the ground much more slippery).

Wednesday, July 29th
 

Due to the weather forecast (there was a severe weather warning issued) the wet weather plan was called into action and so the Scouts visted Bristol Zoo. During the day the rain was torrential, but it did ease into the evening.

On Thursday the Scouts had a "backwoods" day, incorportating pioneering, cooking on open fires and bivvie building. To avoid the morning rain some of the pioneering was done in the barn. There was also the ever-popular low ropes course set up by David Chadwick.
