Survival trip


Remember how you had to plan and prepare for a survival experience on Kakepuku?
Well, plan and prepare for the same thing for Wednesday - it will be foul weather no doubt. Underfoot it will be wet, slippery and muddy. Shoes need to be water resistant and grippy. Socks need to be thick and warm. Pants need to be warm. Your raincoat needs to be good quality to protect you from hours in the rain. You need a food, drink, spare socks and pants. A small towel might be wise. A showerproof, warm hat would be a VERY good idea. Your drink should be water or something healthy. No fizzy drinks or caffeinated energy drinks. Chocolate is fine with extra for mR WOody and Mr Abrahams. Bring two plastic bags for wet clothes and shoes.
Cameras are a good thing to bring but need to be in a water proof bag of some sort.
Mobile phones are okay.
We plan to visit Kakepuku, Yarndley's Bush and the Sustainable Backyard at the Hamilton Gardens.
If you all get your permission slips in by tomorrow morning we will have a trip to the garden area as a reward and you will get 100 class points. If you all bring the cash for the trip you will get an extra 100 class points.

I can't wait!

PLEASE READ! VERY IMPORTANT!
Hey people.
You may be wondering, who is this?
It is Cheetahlicious, named after famous Estonian singer.
I wanted to ask, will we be bringing our Kakepuku Catastrophes, because they will probably be destroyed in the bad weather.
I also have brought my permission slip in but I don't think you saw it on your desk.
Okay cool.
Will we be discussing this in class?
Also I want to point out that our Kakepuku day is on the Spellathon day.

I can wait.
I'm not to excited about the preparation because I fear that I will bring the wrong stuff and look stupid.

P.S. Here is a site that thinks 'people' (the word) is the plural of 'stupid'. It's really confusing.

Mr Woody I am sick today so won't be able to come on the trip today. I hope you get this in time.

Marz Barz said...

Hey Mr. Woody! Sorry, This is quite short notice, but, I will not be going to Kakepuku as my Mum said that I'm not allowed, because I am still quite sick, but also that Mum sadi there is going to be gale force winds and such, and that I should stay home to avoid getting even more sick!!!
Have a good trip everyone! I hope you all have good fun (-:

Thanks, Marz Barz. (-:

It was really fun today although it got a bit steep and very muddy. No I will not change my name to stunt woman but I must say it was fun flying down the stairs even if it did hurt after. the best part for me was going down and getting all muddy running and sliding down

Nei-Nei Neina-Marie said...

It was awesome right until we got half way. Then... well, you know what happened. I spoiled the trip completely, waahwaah!

MrWoody said...

you certainly did not spoil the trip, neina marie - you were very brave and no problem at all. :-)
