“We are positive and confident about our expedition hike as we take over leadership from our instructor.”

“Some of us are very challenged but the group is learning how to work as a team.”

“We have seen some interesting beetles and have been visited by a black kite flying over our camp site.”

“Greta did a great job in taking the lead in our missing person scenario, Tristan did well as the first responder with the snake bite.”
