Been helping out Jennifer get her stuff together for her Gold Duke of Edinburgh expedition. It's been entertaining as well as frustrating. They've got a great route through the Cairngorms starting with the Larig Ghru. It's even got a camp spot at 670m.
The frustrating bit wasn't so much about kit choice, she's borrowing our stuff, it was the food. I suppose feeding teenagers even in normal living conditions can be challenging but this takes it to another level. At least she's not heading into the wilds with Pot Noodles but she's got a combination of pasta packets, cereal bars a selection of sweeties. I did manage to persuade her that pitta bread and Primula is actually quite good for hill food. Ah well so long as they enjoy themselves
