My first guide camp since 1997

    I have been asked to help out with a local division camp (It's not my division but they needed extra adults) and I am actually quite excited to be camping again after such a long time of not camping. We just take our Brownies away to a house with bunk beds so it's nice and easy.
    I've been emailed the kit list now and I'm realising there's several things that I don't have. Can anyone recommend a decent roll mat?
    I will have to go and dig out my camp blanket and get it updated!

    check out the self inflating air beds which are really good, much better than a roll mat and not much bigger

    Thanks. I've been looking online at the self inflating ones. Too lazy to pump one up!

    Just get a non-inflatable one (cheaper) and get the Guides to pump it up. Just tell one of the keen ones that they can get a badge. [​IMG]

    It's common knowlege that guides aremore masochistic tahn scouts.

    Personally, I prefer the French 'everything but the kitchen sink' approach to camping. Bed rolls? Not on your nelly!
