Go for it! It's a great experience, great fun, a way of meeting people and trying new things, seeing beautiful parts of the country... and even though the expeditions are tough at the time, and you may wish you were in your bed instead of in a tent on the side of a hill in the freezing cold, you'll come back with such fond memories, and funny stories! lol!
I miss d of e... was at the gold presentation yesterday at Holyrood Palace...just can't believe that's it, I've finished!

However, there are other things apart from D of E which give the same sort of qualities that an employer would like, for example, if you were good at swimming and you worked hard at it, you would get prizes and awards. If you worked exceptionally well at university you would get an award to say so. If you did some martial art, and trained for gradings etcs you would get certificates to say so.
That was one point I was trying to get at :rolleyes: If such a person had these talents, why not multitask and use them towards D of E, and then you're halfway there already? There's no harm in doing that.
