DofE Bronze Qualifying Expedition 18th – 20th May 2018
On a warm May day the DofE Bronze Qualifying group set off for the Dales from school and arrived at their start point. After sorting out their kit they started on their route. Navigation started well and the route although physically challenging at times was relatively easy to navigate. Meeting them at a checkpoint, spirits were high and the groups were working well together. However, as always they were happy to reach the campsite at Gordale Scar. After pitching the tents they set about cooking dinner, which was mainly pasta based! They were ready to relax and prepare for Day 2. It was a dry evening and with a slight breeze the midges kept away.
They were up early on Day 2 and camp discipline was good, cooking breakfast, taking down tents and organising kit – they were away nice and early with spirits high. The weather was again warm and sunny and everyone worked well to support each other throughout the day. Well Done to everyone who took part.
