Six go wild in Dartmoor!

Six intrepid members of Brownsea Island Lodge recently embarked on a mission to hike into the wilds of Dartmoor following a challenge laid down by one of it's members to practice some of the skills they learned whilst in the Scouts!

Brownsea Island being one of Dorset's themed lodges, the challenge was readily accepted by the team and soon saw them setting off at sunrise to their destination for a wild camp overnight.

Accompanied by three dogs the team carried all their own equipment, tents and rations for the weekend over an arduous route testing their map reading skills as well as their stamina!

Arriving tired but in good spirits at their planned destination the team enjoyed an overnight camp adjacent to an old mine before the return walk the following morning.

Now that the legs have recovered and the blisters have healed the guys are planning a return visit next year!
