DofE Nav Practice - Venford Reservoir
@AdamEvans: A day on Dartmoor practicing our feature-finding skills. Included map reading, walking on a baring, pacing, timing, contouring, and justification of position. A few minor hiccups due to some boundaries being marked in blue and some leats in black, or not marked at all, however we muddled through and concluded it's much safer to use contour lines and other non-movable features to prove your location! Perfect weather for a day on the moors.

Introduction to the Quay - The Quay Climbing Centre
Introducing Miriam to 'proper' indoor climbing. Group of 3 climbing doesn't usually work however using auto-belays made it go smoothly. Tonio peaking at 6a, Miriam 6b and Adam climbing 6b+. A grueling session left all participants aching for days. Other colleagues very jealous!

Birthday Celebrations - Dart Rock Climbing Centre
A family climbing trip to the indoor wall in Buckfastleigh. With 3 self belay walls and approx. 10 roped walls, as well as two bouldering rooms, the centre has a wide variety of difficulties. A brilliant way to spend a birthday!

Zig-Zagging the Avon and Kennet - Avon and Kennet Canal, Dundas Aquaduct
After a somewhat distracted morning with a roof tent, this was the first proper trip in the K2 for AE. With RM as front man, AE had control of the rudder leading to a much longer trip than necessary. Once the steering was under control, the return trip was a somewhat serene experience despite the physical strain. With no wind and, by some miracle, no rain, the perfect weather for paddling led to a successful afternoon, even returning before dark. Max speed: 9.3km/h Moving av.: 5.9km/h Total: 16.5km Moving time: 2h46m Stop: 33m
