We have been having fun at The Exmoor Centre this morning rigging up a parachute to create some covered space.
Tomorrow we are hosting an event for Experience Exmoor, we are hoping to provide some Bushcraft days at The Exmoor Centre this year and tomorrows event is a test day to get some photographs and feedback for publicty purposes.
With Exmoors unpredictable climate we put out a plea on Twitter for a Parachute and our friend Melanie Hudson came up trumps via some of her contacts with the beautiful sky-blue parachute you see in the pictures.
Neil from Experience Exmoor and I set out first thing this morning to rig up the parachute. After much Laurel and Hardy style antics trying to get ropes over branches we managed to create something resembling a parachute creating a great covered space in the process. The ‘chute gives a welcome splash of colour in the drab winter landscape and we can’t wait to get the Bushcraft Guinea-pigs out there tomorrow for an exciting day.
