Hi there this is G Gangster here to talk about our classes return to the Matai Islands.
In class we have been talking about returning to the Matai Islands( for further info. on the Matai Islands go to G Gangsters Sustainability blog) for two weeks and we are only allowed to keep the clothes on our back and ten items in a backpack (Not including a packed lunch). We are in groups for this experience, so in our group we have assigned different people to different jobs e.g. Hunting Equipment, Cooking Equipment, First Aid etcetera... The Island that we are going to is untouched by man so everything is as it would be as it was 250 years ago before James Cook first settled in New Zealand.
Here Is my list of ten Items that I would take (I was put in charge of Hunting Equipment).
1-2 liter Camelback
2-2 liter Camelback
4-Roll of Nylon String
5-Hatchet (small axe)
9-Fishing Tackle and Rod
10-Small gas bottle
Everyone is excited about their trip, yet at the same time a a bit nervous. We will be traveling in a Grumman Albatross sea plane, 1 week from now.
Will write soon.
