My Bronze Expedition Log

We started our exhibition at Spelga dam on the Friday morning. We thought it was great getting a day off school to do our Duke of Edinburgh.

As we descended one of the people in our groups sleeping bag string snapped and so we had to reattach that to his bag before we continued on.
