Training Report

Day 4 of training. (Yep, we’ve done 4 days of training for fourmonths of canoeing and we start in two weeks – don’t know what you’re worried about.)

Reporting back after acclimatisation (getting sunburnt) and camouflage (we’re both brown) training.


  1. Explore local rivers.
  2. Gain expertise in dealing with wildlife.
  3. Utilise outdoor skills

Mission report:

  1. Task 1 success. Nathan managed to fall out of the canoe.
  2. Task 2 success. Confrontation with a very scary swan avoided. Mooed at several large cows. Chased some sheep during lunch break.
  3. Task 3 success. Remembered loo roll.

Next report due at the end of alcohol resistance training.
