D of E Assessing – Mid Wales

Group leaving the wild camp

Toward the middle of August, I was asked by Gateway Outdoor to step in as an emergency assessor for a open gold D of E walking expedition in mid Wales as due to an emergency situation the original assessor had to return home after the third day.

I meet up with the group and their supervisor on the final evening, which entailed a walk in to a remote camp near Glaslyn lake north of the Plynlimon mountain range. I agreed to meet up with the group on route to their final destination Machynlleth and then it was time to leave the group to cook their evening meal.

Well I’m pleased to say that I was able to congratulate the group on their success and wish them well on completing the rest of their award.
