Last Friday, my “Treasure Box” came from the Adventurists (organizers of the Mongol Derby).  Better than Christmas, I was not able to wait to open it, and tore into it at my parent’s house.

Yes, its gold, what a suitable box for treasure!

Dad did his best to get a photo of me with my phone.

There were lots of other goodies in there too, I think I got a picture of everything, so here is the credit where credit is due part:

Some shorts style undies, made from Beech tree pulp.  They are very soft and come with some seeds to plant.

Drysack bags.  Sort of like the bags we would use canoe camping when I was younger, but much lighter (the material is more like that of a sail says Dad)

Torq water bottle and edibles.  I havent tried them yet... will perhaps save them for my first 50 of the season
