TRAINING. Sweden’s Nest 7 were out in the Småland highlands for a field day consisting of various activities on Saturday, 24 April.
The first activity of the day was abseiling practice. The group went to a quarry, fastened a rope to a strong tree, and then took turns descending a cliff with the help of abseiling equipment.
On one of the cliffs, the participants had to abseil down into an inflatable boat, if they didn’t want to go for a swim.
After the abseiling was over, the participants joined the other members, who had set up a campsite, and grilled sausages together.
The day’s second exercise was to try to make a fire with just wood and a piece of string. The participant had to create friction by spinning a wooden stick against a piece of wood using the string.
