I kept a very detailed journal and 41 years on I am amazed to see the detail and how I have changed. The abiding memory is of character formation and wonderful Lake district. It was 'white out' conditions a lot of the time we were there so we were excused lake swims and even had shorter expeditions. I remember walking on deep snow and camping in Eskdale valley on snow, which made it look like a lunar landscape. One group lit a fire in their tent! and the whole lot went up in smoke so then we had to sleep four to a tent designed for three. I will read the journals and return with more maybe at a later stage

I also have a picture of the whole course E283
