Before Christmas (yes - I am only just getting around to blogging about this particular event), I went to the wilds of Dartmoor with my brother-in-law Owen who is a Summer Mountain Leader.
This was specifically for Navigation training. Don't get me wrong - I already had plenty of navigation experience...... I was just a little bit rusty!
By the end of the weekend, I was back up to speed and ready to go on my Munro Marathon with the necessary skills under my belt to not get lost. Or, if I do get lost, to find myself again!
A couple more training sessions are scheduled in the diary. One on Salisbury Plain - home turf and personal stomping ground (I don't know why the army have to use it so much). And another full weekend practice expedition over Easter in Dartmoor. Isla will be tagging along too this time as she will be a year old and better able to cope with several full days of walking!
Watch this space!
