Malvern Hills

Saturday 7th January.

After a festive season of eating and drinking too much, it was nice to get back out on the hills.

Today we took a local couple out for a days navigation.

In May this year, Sue and Fred will be completing the TGO challenge. Click HERE to find out more.

This is a backpacking event over 15 days, covering somewhere between 180 to 210 miles depending on the route chosen.

This is by no means an easy undertaking!

We covered some basic skills they would need for the challenge, like map and compass, relocation, map reading ‘on the go’, contour interpretation to name a few.

Although the Malvern Hills are no comparison to the Scottish Highland, practice is practice!
