Having known the late Duke of Edinburgh for much of my life, I can tell you that His Royal Highness would be thrilled should you choose to partake in the Duke of Edinburgh award expedition.

All three of my daughters have done D of E expeditions. Not going to lie, they are gruelling if you get bad weather. On the other hand you get to hang out with friends, see glorious countryside and find out how to work in a team.
You'll need dried food as it is lighter than anything else and warm clothes. I'd also recommend you wrap your things in plastic inside your rucksack as if you get heavy rain, your things will stay dry.

I enjoyed DofE a lot! However if you’re not used to carrying such a heavy bag (and even if you are) you’re going to be really tired and have muscle aches at the end of it. My advice would be to bring as little as you can, as the kit really weighs you down.
