Some Comments from Recent Participants at Gold Level
Some Comments from Recent Participants at Gold Level '' Overall, the whole expedition went smoothly. Everyone was in good spirits most of the time and the route provided a great variety of scenery and levels of toughness. There were tough parts but this is what separates gold from the other awards. Our assessor gave us enough freedom and independence to make us feel self-sustained but still provided support and accessible/useful advice, which allowed the whole experience to feel more enjoyable and free, less like an assessment. ''I felt that the expedition went really well. The route was nice and the views from the top of the hills (enormous) almost made the effort of climbing up worth it. The map reading was challenging at times but quite fun, overall the whole experience was challenging but very rewarding at the end of each day.'' We all worked well as a team, sharing our tasks and encouraging one another when needed. The summer weather was lovely and allowed us to see Herefordshire at its best. At the end of the expedition, we are all tired and achy but very pleased and happy to have completed a hard expedition.
