Just back from five days in the Peak District. I was assessing five teams doing their Duke of Edinburgh Award Gold expeditions. Appalling weather a lot of the time and I was really impressed with how all 23 of them coped.

I'm back up there again Friday next week assessing three teams doing their Silver expeditions. I certainly hope the weather is a bit better. Is the drought over yet?
Why use a sledge hammer to crack a nut when a steam roller is even more effective, and, is fun to drive.
