Today I looked up the Girlguiding Walking Qualification. I found out some interesting facts:
You can skip Level 1 if you have completed Silver or Gold Duke of Edinburgh awards. I have done this.
For Level 2 & 3 - You need to go on first aid training that is HSE approved for 16+hrs. I checked costs online - this is an expensive undertaking... To be queried with relevant adviser at a later date.
A log is required to record the required 20 minimum 10k or longer walks.
At this point I decided with PJ's help that we would sort out our various logging methods into a book which I have been saving for a good use. It has a lovely painting of a loch by Brian Cook on the cover.
Having logged our memorable or significant walks since we started recording them (May 2012) I have found 14 so far are over 10k.
You can use walks completed in the last 3 years. I will love looking back at this notebook in years to come, remembering the walks and the associated comments I have included (such as the pints in the thatched pub in Maids Moreton.
This is a picture of icy Loch Ordie which we visited yesterday on a 13.5mile loop walk incorporating one terrifying snowy muddy steep but short hill.
