Stuck in the bush for a couple of weeks?
How can you avoid boredom and enjoy life? What about laundry – with no facilities, how do you deal with it?
What about when nature calls? Where do you go when the closest toilet is a couple of hours drive away?
The Trailblazer Guide has the answer to Bush Life: The lifestyle, doing laundry and taking a dump. Practical illustrations included. Nobody will take responsibility for your actions in the wild. Follow our guidance at your own peril.
It’s December 2013. Umzimkulu Gorge, Close to Port Shepstone, South Africa.
Weather: up to 50 degrees Celcius (122 Fahrenheit), ultra high humidity.
Franz, Sheena and Troy went camping in an abandoned hut next the The Omen, a class 4 rapid on the Umzimkulu gorge.
In this video they share some life lessons for surviving remote bush life.
Note: Due to the Omen constantly roaring in the background, the sound is not its perky best (despite the Rode Videomic and heavy editing), but the message gets through!
Special thanks to Adam Gray of Oribi Outdoors for helping us get to our destination, giving us a ride and helping out with river safety. Respect bru!
