To avoid catastrophic failure it’s advisable that expeditions should at least have a basic framework that participants sign up to. I don’t know how I ended up with the role of “Binder” again but somehow I have been tasked with coming up with a plan & route for a madcap weekend “up north”. I think everyone else took two paces backwards.
“Up north” can be jolly cold at the back end of November and the plan is to camp two nights on top of tall places, where, funnily enough, it can be even colder.
So far, the most helpful advice I have had from the expedition’s “Burley” is as follows:
“I'll have a bottle of Ouzo my wife brought back from Cyprus for me. Saving it for this trip to share ;-) Unless of course, I end up drinking it before then but I'll endeavour to keep it safe ;-)”
So we should be nice and warm, then.
