One map must not be shared between more than 2 hikers.
One compass must not be shared bewteen more than 2 hikers.
No one should be on the hike without a scarf.
We are aiming to walk 14km on Sabbqth and expect to be out for 5hrs.
On occasions, we will be walking along the road and must have all hikers listen and following instructions exactly.
Everyone should have a compass of their own. The ideal situation would be for each hiker to have their own map as well.
Each hiker will need a small backpack with food and drink. Water, banana, bread, pasta, or anything else with lots of carbs will be fine.
We will NOT be hiking with a full rucksack with all our camping gear and food. That will be done during the Guide class.
I recommend that they buy a Base layer (or wicker) to remove the sweat from on their skin. Apart from that it is their usual waterproof jackets and trousers
We may be passing through fields of grazing cattle. If anyone is terrified of cows, please let us know BEFORE we set off on the expedition.
Hikers would be expected to plan and follow their own route based on Sabbaths experience.
Our expectation is that most of the group should be familiar with basic navigation at the end of the weekend.
