/ World challenge to Ecuador
They have been given a kit list not dissimilar to those given to kids on Dof E expeditions where they have to take everything but the kitchen sink.
One of the areas we are struggling to deal with is in terms of footwear. She wears inov 8 boots the rock light 365's which have done her for all the high Lakeland peaks in various weather conditions.
