You going around doing orienteering around the jungle,
which obviously it's a lot more difficult
than orienteering on the flat plains.
'Cause you can't see a lot, obviously, for the trees.
So, that was quite difficult getting the orienteering done.
We just had to do shell scrapes and the washing facility
was our local river.
So we had the wash in the local river
for six weeks on the tour.
And then we had to have a boat 200 meters down river
because there was a family of crocodiles that lived there,
so it was quite exciting.
And I was on sentry there one day,
guarding a area where we set up,
and a little baby puma come walking past me
about 50 meters in front.
That was quite harrows,
kept looking around for the mum but couldn't spot it.
I didn't want the mum to come pay me a visit.
Yeah, that was an experience.
And as you was washing in the stream as well
you just get the fish coming in between your toes.
That took a while to get used to, that did.
But yeah, we lived on ration packs for the whole six weeks.
So, we all got back about one and half stone lighter.
So but it, no, it was a great experience, the jungle.
It rained for three weeks,
three weeks out of the six weeks we was there.
And you only had two, that's the kit.
One was your wet kit, one was your dry kit.
And you could only put your dry kit on to go to sleep.
But it wasn't a bad tour, it was alright.
By 6:00 every night you was in bed
because it's pitch black
and you don't move in the jungle at night.
So, it was the only time for six weeks
I really got 12 hours sleep at night.
So, it was quite a bonus.
