Oh boy. This will be a long one. Before I get into this I just want to say this was not AT ALL planned. I’m not even sure where to start, I guess I’ll start from when I got to my friends town.
So, we went to the shop first (they done my scratch card!) spent about half an hour in there. In the end we came out with: a pack of plastic cups, a disposable BBQ, marshmallows, a wooden spoon (it’ll be explained later) sausages, burgers drinks ECT.
I’ll skip to when we arrived at where we was “camping”. So, we arrive, set up the tent and that, collect firewood you know how it is. Nothing happened after that till about nine.
At this point we started up the BBQ, Ethan was on cooking duty as he was undoubtedly the best cook between us. They was divine to say the least. After we started up the fire. I would had got a picture but my phone died at this point.
Now I’ll skip to the best part/parts. It was about eleven, we was all chilled and that but slightly bored. We was trying to think of stuff to do. Forgot to mention we was all topless at this point, no homo but it was boiling.
Then, the idea was put out there. We knew we had to do it. The camp was full of an unnerving silence to the point where it was scary. We should walk to the McDonalds over three hours away. Incase you haven’t gathed we went through with this.
We packed up the tent instantly, put out the fire and we was off on the open road. Our first “road trip”. Apart from it being pitch black (the street lights go out at one in the UK) and funny as hell nothing really happend on the walk.
Three o’clock: we came across a massive two story super market:it was closed, of course. By this point we had been walking for a good two hours without stoping. We wasn’t giving up, we had gone wayyyyy to far to turn back now.
Four oclock: we get to McDonald’s . I can’t stress enough how incredible this felt. We saw the sign saying “24 hours” we celebrate our achievement. Only to get closer to see “drive through only”. We almost cried.
We wasn’t beaten, not by a long shot. So we went to the drive through widow. I do not recommend this they get very angry. They instructed us to come back at five. So what did we do? Waited till five on a near by bench. We didn’t come three hours to be told to go.
Five o’clock: we was waiting frantically at the door. Baring in mind by this point we was starving. They open. We sprinted to the counter. I knew what I was gettin get. That breakfast wrap was the nicest thing I’d ever had. I forgot to say but we decided we would get the bus back.
Six oclock: we was waiting for the bus. We was reflecting on the night goings on and establishing and getting to grips of what we had achieved. We walked the route the bus go’s so we obviously went that way back on the bus.what was a three hour walk was a twenty minute bus ride. My friend was out of it by now.
Not much happend after that I just chilled at my mates till half nine then got the bus back,and now:I’m in bed, tired and sore. My beds never felt so nice. Although it might not sound as good in text and I missed out parts, I can honestly say it was one of the best nights in my life, spending it with great mates. If you haven’t done anything like this before, your missing out. Live while your young! (No one direction reference)
On that note guys, I’m off to bed.finally. If any of you guys have done anything like this I would love to hear about them!
