Bronze D of E Expedition in Yorkshire

Getting ready to depart on day two

A quick change of clothes after my canoe trip on the River Wye and it was back in the car to drive up to Yorkshire to be part of an assessor team for my friend Dave Nolan at Peak Mountain Adventures.

We had 6 teams out over the weekend walking on the local hills around Slingsby just north of York. All went well on the first day and all the teams reached the overnight campsite in good spirits and quickly got the tents erected and preparation for their evening meal.

On the second day, one of the teams were a bit late getting to one of their checkpoints which caused a moment or too but eventually turned up in good spirits after taking a little detour or so we were informed!

Well, I’m pleased to say they all passed their qualifying expedition and I wish them well with the rest of their award.
