Trail finding on a bike ride with friends and surrounded by beautiful ripe blackberries. I had to stop. My passion for crumble created a perfect chance to demonstrate fixing a stained map of Hampshire.
Deftly removing my head map I tied 4 sturdy knots in each corner to create a bowl shape from the square fabric map.
Then it’s the usual. Enlist the troops and dive into those brambles!
Pretty soon the map/bowl was filled with delicious and rather squishy dark berries.
Likely to get crushed
I stuffed the map straight into the top of my back pack where it was least likely to get crushed on some of my favourite Hampshire Trails.
Foraged to death?
Thankfully the map had done its job. No staining or runny stuff inside the rucksack. BUT it really had suffered itself. Had it been foraged to death?
The pictures say it all!
It’s another tail of map hardiness. Why not share one of yours?
