These are just some examples of ideas for aims. You and your team should create an aim that is personal and interesting to you – and suitable for your expedition area and mode of travel.
- Explore and document cairns in Scotland
- Investigate Roman sites around Hadrian’s Wall
- Photograph and describe interesting old buildings along your route
- Explore an historic place made famous in a film and document the scenery
- As a team, identify different team roles and rotate each day
- Create a series of communication signals to use within your team
- Do a fun team game or challenge each day to promote team building
- Make a video diary of your teams experiences, from camping and cooking to researching your destination
- Monitoring and evidencing the impact of a physically demanding expedition on the body by walking all day and measuring calorie intake, heart rate and pulse compared too normal.
- Decorate a white t-shirt, using inspiration from the scenery that you see along your route
- Search for forms of fungi, photograph or sketch them and record them
- List and film the different kinds of birds you see
- As second mini aim, draw all the different star constellations that you see
