I decided to go into the jungle today (even though I am rather nervous of the wildlife there) to see if I can find a) some fibrous, pliable bark or something, that I can use as a patch for the damaged dugout I found. and b) some sticky sap or latex or something that will serve as a glue to hold the patch in place. It's been a fruitless search, although I have found a taro plant, however. But I misjudged the time and suddenly night has fallen and I will have to spend the night in here. I am not looking forward to this.
