VIDEO: DofE Gold Starts Today – 4 August 2013


Apologies straight away, dear readers, to those who’ll doubtless have found the coverage of my DofE Award adventures somewhat tiring. (However, I’m afraid it’s sort of tough luck: there’ll be yet more posts, photographs, and video content, from Norfolk’s Silver expedition and the Gold final practice in Cumbria, in the coming months.)


At last – and you have no idea how close we’ve already been to failing – it seems we’re all finally ready for our real (assessed) Gold trip, which is just as well – we’re leaving Maidenhead at around 9:00am this morning.

To whet the appetites of the remaining few online followers who still ‘want more’, here’s a short clip (filmed earlier this week) soon after laying the map-cards out on the floor of Luke’s house.

WATCH Andrew guide viewers through the route.
