Highlights of Camp

I'm back from camp! (I wonder how many posts have started off with that sentance similar to that?) It went sooo quick. 5 days with just friends!
I'm not going to go into great detail, but here are the highlights.


Highlight #1: Prusiking
Have you ever been prusiking? Wait, you probably don't even know what it is. Prusiking is a way of climbing ropes where you sit in a harness, loosen the knot of a loop and push it up, then put your foot in it and hoist yourself up. Then you loosen the knot holding the harness on and push that up, sit down and do it again. It's a bit hard to explain.

I like to think I owned, but I was 5th fastest in the class, so I infact did not own.But I loved it, even when I did get 5 blisters after climbing the rope 4 times. YEAH!

Theres a photo on my friends camera that I'll add later when I get the photos :)

Highlight #2: Archery
I love archery, and I know want to take it up as a sport, like you do with netball and basketball. The lady said I had a good posture, so I guess that's a start...

Highlight #3: Being with my Friends
Who doesn't like spending time with friends? No further information needed.

We also went to this little island, to a Naval Base island, to the beach a lot and make rafts (am I seriously the only one who know what a reef knot is and how to do it?). The camp was right on the beach.

Now this is off the topic of friends, but, I can't stand reading anything in a sort of bad condition. In this case, I don't think I'll ever share my things again. Ya see, I let my friends borrow my new Dolly magazine, that I hadn't read my self yet, but then I came back and the cover had come off. I had to get a whole new magazine.

Same thing happened to my Heist Society book. I bought it in Febuary, put it in my school bag to take to school then to have my drink bottle leak over everything. The pages on the in one corner are all puffy and annoying.

So yeah, pictures later.

I hate it when you let a friend borrow a magazine, and when they hand it back the cover of it has magically vanished. I get the biggest urge to rip the covers off every one of their books and magazines, gahh.
I want to try archery sometime, it sounds like fun :)

@ Braceface: Not yet! It was just a school camp.
