Silver DofE Exped

On Friday 28th October we began our Silver actual expedition in and around Nottinghamshire. On the first day we walked just over 17km on varied terrain. The whole group found it enjoyable and we were all in high spirits, although blisters were beginning to show. Even though it was October, the weather was nice and pleasant with sunny skies all day. On that day after ensuring that our bags were adjusted properly and checking that everyone was ready to go, we set off walking at 8:45am. Morale was high all day, and throughout parts we were singing, throughout most of it we were all bonding. By the end of the day we were all excited to reach the campsite. Once we had rested, we began cooking and setting up our tents. I personally cooked tomato chilli pasta.
