Just an every day hike? Not quite ... at roughly 32 miles through snow on the first day these scouts should be congratulated on an incredible achievement in terrain they throw at the SAS for training. We can be confident that those moving on to Duke of Edinburgh award will walk it ... so to speak.
A personal note from Pete - "I genuinely have never been so impressed with a group of scouts. Their behaviour was fantastic and their determination was incredible. They are a credit to their parents and the leaders. Well done to all involved for the planning of a brilliant weekend."
Huge thanks from all parents to the leaders who organised and looked after our scouts, and, in time, I'm sure the scouts would say thank you as well. Once the aches and pains have subsided!
