Toss the bedroll.
Learning to make and tie a bedroll properly is a challenge that once achieved few Guides will ever really forget. Playing 'throw the bedroll' [of course it' s to see how well the tying of the packers knot actually is!!] is met with cheers when the ting bounces and rolls or merey wobbles and then topples. Cheers and laughter with an appreciation of a job well done or groans and a determination to do better nest time. But the learning is there. When the 'next time' rolls around so too is the determination to 'do her best'. And this best is better than the last one.
