Thank you once again Andy for the terrific experience.

I have now got kitted out with all the correct things that I didnt have first time round. The vital things really, like a roll mat, a mug and well, a bag. A tad smaller but much easier to carry.

I would love to go back up there and complete another adventure with Lupine. Apologies in advance if you thought you could get rid of me that easily and thank you so much once again

I felt apprehensive about doing my gold final expedition up in the Yorkshire Dales with people I'd never met before.  However Lupine Adventure Co-operative were professional and friendly and it was the most enjoyable DofE expedition that I've been on.

Contact [with the supervisor] was just about right, and they didn't interrupt the flow - it was helpful to see them and they suggested improvements and broke up the day (and gave you confidence that you were going the right way..)
