We’ve past so many awesome beaches over the weeks but often we’re pushing to get to the next camp or wild spot to set up the tent before dark, so we’ve not been having as much fun in the sea as we should! So today as soon as we arrived in Hahei we pegged it down to the sand :) I’ve been eyeing up the Lilo-ness of our bed mats for some time and after a bit of bobbing about it quickly escalated into a game of International Kings of Surfing! Wahoo! ;) Cookie nailed some big waves first so I had a lot to beat. But with a lucky set of awesome waves I think I covered the most distance. I think points go to Cookie for style, and to me for volume ( of screams )… Roll on the next competition!
Woo hoo! This was brilliant fun, worked much better than I imagined :) I’ve often wondered while fording some of the rivers over here, whether our Therm-a-rest Neoair mattresses would take the weight of our rucksacks and be usable as a makeshift raft? Would mean we could swim across while holding on to the Therm-a-Pack raft, even if it was too deep to ford like the Okura River.
Well them Neoair’s support the weight of me in the water, so I think the answer would definitely be yes! Probably need a bit of structural support by lashing the poles on too, but I think we’re on to a winner, bring on the next big river crossing :D
