I've got D of E expedition this weekend in derbyshire

i've got a 3 day hike (only practice) but i cant decide how many shorts and trousers to take in this weather. I've currently got 1 pair of shorts, a pair of walking trousers and a pair of trousers that are kind of waterproof incase it rains. Does that sound right? Or should I stick in another pair of shorts?

general rule is take 2 of everything - one for wet and one for dry. s take 2x shorts and 2x trousers. thats all i took for my expedition, and i did a 5 day one!!

Stick in another pair of shorts. + exta socks in case its cold, sunglasses, insect repellant, painkillers, plasters as well need to be remembered.

Don't forget plently of change for the pubs along the route

Do they still ban mobile phones ?

I did my gold a while back now, I remember ******** myself once as I sat on a bloody grass snake !!! You should have heard it hiss (hence why you should take 2 pairs of pants)
