    "leave no trace camping" the Chief Scout way!

    Ok I admit it, I've always took BG with a pinch of salt. Yes he has slept in hotels when filming jungle survival etc. But the guy (I am led to believe) was in the SAS (TA or not it is still tough) he has climbed Everest again not easy. He is also chief scout, so with this title in mind he has a duty of care to do thing right. Yes, you would have thought.

    So here comes the rant!

    He takes Miranda Hart on a wild weekend (below)

    Skip to 23:58 and watch as BG lights a fire on grass on the side of a mountain! No preparation and no doubt leaving a big fire scar, jeez the git may have well had chucked some lager cans in there as well to finish the effect.

    Just to add insult to injury he must have had the wood shipped in by the film crew judging by the size of his bonfire.

    And the worst part is that viewers won't learn anything about Leave No Trace from this AT ALL....just the opposite.
