    When you take kids camping

    might of been done before , but just a reminder with summer nearly upon us. if camping with the kids ,grandkids give them all a whistle on a lanyard . especially around rivers. May even come in handy at a caravan park with all the sicko around today, explain its only if they are in trouble and out of sight.
    we all love our kids right?

    can't agree more. munchkin (11yro) had his 1st 2 scout camps awhile back, 1 was a night excercise round-robin and the other similar but over a full weekend. I set him up with a first aid kit with enough to cover him if something went wrong, hydralyte (anti-squirts / dehydration fluids), whistle, pocket knife / multi tool, whistle, waterproof matches, compass, 2 x glow sticks, a printed area from near-maps and I forget what else.

    showed him how to locate visible features in the area he is in that he could find on the map and orientate the map to "N" against the compass, that way he new if anything went wrong, he could locate the closest track / road or sheltered area near to him and his group.

    won't be much longer before I start to teach him map reading etc as he wants to follow me and my old man through cadets at the start of next year.

    The last time I went camping in Yarrawonga I caught an 80cm Murray cod from Lake Mulwala and brought it back to camp still alive in the bait tank. I tethered it with about ten metres of line and let it swimming freely to keep it fresh for dinner that night.
    Most of our camp crew girls were going into to town, so I took some of the boys up river for a fish for yellow bellys bug didn't get any. We got back before dusk and I see my Cod floating near the bank with a small log next to it. I screamed "WHO THE F**K DID THIS" so loud the whole camp site heard. Some guy came down from the top of the camp site being really apologetic. He told me that he seen his young boys playing near the waters edge for ages and wondered what was so fascinating when he saw the bludgeoned fish on the bank.
    I was so cut but really couldn't do nothing about it. Both kids came down to say sorry and their dad gave me two full 9kg gas bottles. I was pretty happy with the gesture, but still cut about the cod as most of our camping group had never tasted Murray cod and were all looking forward to it. No more legal cod caught for the rest of that trip.
