It has been a very interesting weekend indeed. I arrived at the Plas y Brenin in Snowdonia for the Expeditions symposium (http://www.pyb.co.uk/courses/expedition-symposium.php) just to chat with some old friends and talk about boats and bits of kit for expeditions. I have been rocking the Pyranha Everest and its proven expedition history. I also suggest that the Fusion would be a suitable kayak for more placid runs, but this is another story.
On the sunday I assisted Spike Green with workshops about planning your own expedition. From Poland to Peru, Norway to Nepal we covered it all. Guided or DIY, river trip? lake? sea? options all around. DO you want to camp in the middle of the Himalaya or car camp all these options make the sport we do a different adventure every day.
It was a great weekend and the strangers in the morning were new friends in the afternoon. Those who missed the day or those who have any expedition related questions please just email firstname.lastname@example.org and I will be happy to answer any question you have about expedition trips.
Areas covered, Team, Gear, Knowledge, Aim, Money and Location. We also talked about going down gorges and blind horizon lines.
See you on the water.
