“In April 2013 my group and I were anxious for our first out of school D of E experience, however it ended up to be our best D of E experience yet (despite the wet weather conditions!). Indie and Theo were amazing throughout the whole week, from the minute we stepped off the train, they were always there to help up along the way. Broadening our navigational ability, and learning techniques I had never even known existed, it was the most educational practice expedition of the three I have done.

But the education was not just limited to hiking and navigation, I learnt huge amounts about Dartmoor’s (where we were doing our expedition) geology and history, making it an even more rewarding experience.

I feel thoroughly prepared for my qualifying expedition, which I hope to do with Indie next summer. Thank you from all of us!” J. Ganis
