Another Expedition Success for the 43rd Bristol Scouts

The second group of scouts from the 43rd Bristol undertook their Expedition Challenge Camp this weekend. Whilst it was glorious sunshine for most of the weekend, a short burst of rain didn't dampen spirits on Saturday as the Scouts walked from Congresbury to Backwell Scout Hut whilst carrying their overnight gear. Sundays hike took them from Backwell, round the back of Long Ashton and into Ashton Court and then the final leg home to the 43rd Bristol Scout hut with various checkpoints along the route.

28km walked in total, 1 pair of hiking boots destroyed, 6 meals cooked, 1 waterproof jacket forgotten, infinite amount of navigational skills improved, 1 ISS spotted and 6 very tired scouts!

Well done Scouts - the expedition challenge award well earned!
