Last Friday, under the invitation of the Headmaster, I was invited to Musbury Primary School in east Devon to talk to the children about my many adventures over the years. Ages ranged from 7 to 11 and as the school is so small, more kids were driven over from nearby Dalwood primary.
I didn't want to bore them with lots of talk, so mixed up the presentation with film clips from various projects, such as the Land Rover Global Expedition reconnaissance in Alaska and the Ecosalvage news footage, filmed just a mile from their school.
With only a short break to stretch their legs, I talked to them for two hours, describing the various parts of the world that I had visited and demonstrated the equipment that I had used. At the end, the questions came in thick and fast, so I guess they had managed to stay awake.
It's great to pass on my experiences and hopefully it will inspire them to get out there themselves and explore the world.
I would like to say a huge thank you to Headmaster, Clive 'Sam' Salmon for inviting me along and to the children for the very nice bottle of red wine!
