Episode 5: Plan an expedition from your house

Published by Jonny Berry on

In this final part, we bring all your new skills together to plan your own expedition

Here we bring everything you have learnt over the past 4 episodes together to create your very own adventure. Now it is time to get outside and start exploring your local area!

The 4-minute video shows you what you’ll need to know to plan an expedition from your house.

There are a few items you need to plan your own expedition:

  • A map
  • A permentant marker
  • A length of string
  • An aim for your expedition

Here is a great link to find OS maps cheap!

We suggest getting the laminated active maps as it means if it rains or you write on the map with the permeant marker you can clean it off and the map won’t be ruined.

If this is the first episode you have come across, find episode 1 here.
