48 hours into Jamboree on the Internet

48 hours in and the Bishopdale & Harewood scouts are still at it! We have been using IRC to chat with scouts from across the world. Contacts include rangers, scouts, guides, cubs and keas from Australia, the Maldives, India, South Africa, Holland, Malta, Sweden, Finland, UK, Norway, Greenland, Iceland, the USA and many places in between.

One of my favourite contacts were a bunch of cubs from New South Wales in Australia whose leader was making his cub pack pedal on a bicycle to generate the power to keep them online!

Great fun has been had by all. We have two hours to go before the event draws to a close and we start to pack-up the camp.
