BRECON BEACONS 24/03/17-26/03/17
Last weekend, the Peru team visited the Brecon Beacons for a training weekend in preparation for their overseas expedition in the summer.
After arriving at Newcourt Farm campsite, they began learning the many skills involved which including putting up tents and planning the routes for the next day. Saturday included a 25km trek around the peaks and countryside of Wales whilst practicing navigating, carrying heavy loads and working together as a team to achieve our goals.
Sunday they trekked only a couple of hours carrying our bigger rucksacks up some steep gradients whilst finishing in the beautiful sunny weather of Brecon.
During the treks they got the chance to practice walking over a variety of terrains including rivers, boggy mud, forests, fields and mountains.
On reflection, the group felt that they all worked well as a team sharing out jobs evenly which included cooking, washing up and dealing with tents. Furthermore, they encouraged team members with group positivity and overcame all our obstacles whilst always keeping up morale.
Well done to all involved
