My eldest lad of 9 is off on an Outward Bound type course first thing Monday with school, and they've sent him home tonight with a list of extra gear required. Most of which we have already for camping trips, but I'm stuck with
Re-sealable plastic bags for VERY muddy/wet clothes.
Plastic bags with the Zip closures.
Does anybody know where I could get some large ones in the Pompey area on a Saturday?
The Sailing/Walking bags meant for keeping gear dry.
The Marine superstore at Port Solent sell Henry LLoyd Storm Dry Bags in various sizes that are surprisingly cheap, and would be useful afterwards.
If anyone has used them perhaps they can help with the following.
a) would they keep water and mud in as well as they are supposed to keep water out?
b) Are they washable, so I could clean them up and use them as they are supposed to be used later on the RIB and when camping?
Any Other bright ideas?
Remember they are for a (Bright like his father
) 9 year old to get to grips with, and I must be able to go and get them in the Pompey area on Saturday morning.
