    I'm the only person in my school who wants to do the Gold Duke of Edinburgh award so I have to do my expedition externally through a company meaning I won't meet the people i'm on expedition with until the actual expedition!

    Has anyone done their expedition without knowing anyone else in the team? How was it? I'm nervous haha

    I did Silver through Cadets with people I'd never met before. Wasn't too bad, think of it like intensive friend-making XD Just don't be a mong and mess up navigating.

    Does the DofE Expedition company ask for any general details about you? e.g. age, sex Maybe they'll put you with similar people
