They'd clearly lit a campfire here recently.
He looked around nervously.
He'd just endured three days of rope knot practice and invasive nature projects
before finally managing to grab his clothes and make a run for it.
He didn't want to be recaptured now and taken back for their last night barbecue.
Unfortunately it was at least 3 days walk to the nearest Ranger Station, he reckoned.
He just had to hope none of them had got a badge for tracking craft.
