Alton Webteam: April 2018
Our four senior girls completed their Adventure Challenge with a planned walk from Alice Holt to Heron's Way campsite in Tilford. It all started very well on Good Friday with the morning being overcast but at least dry. By mid-morning the rain had set in for the day but Daisy, Libby, Josephine & Sophie were still in good spirit and made good time to the lunch stop. Unfortunately that is where all the planning was put to one side as it changed to a completely different sort of adventure....
Well let's say I managed to get my car stuck in mud from which, with the help of two AA vans, the girls and a 4x4, it was extricated. The girls got absolutely covered in mud whilst helping to push the car and lots of laughter was heard.
After a clean-up in the cabin that was our base the girls set about keeping the fire going. A supper of sausage and chips was most welcome, then there was more chopping of wood, eating sweets and generally chatting before the girls turned in for the night.
Saturday brought a dry day and after breakfast the girls were collected.
To the girls, my thanks for all your help with my car and for staying so positive throughout our "adventure". It is a time I hope you remember as I do, with a smile. I hope next time the weather will be kinder.
To Peter & Robert thank you for all your help with getting my car out of the mud.
To Glenda thank you for holding it all together and sorry that you had the inflatable mattress with the puncture.
It was certainly an Adventure, so girls what do we do next????
