Tell us the story behind your photo:
Gold D of E Expedition taking place in Scotland from Fort William to Spean Bridge in 1995. Our team name was Rug Rats and it was full of excitement confronting the stormy snowy weather along with my friends. Although we had a few disasters with a nut allergy scare and an extremely bandaged foot struggling to keep up with the boggy terrain. We never lost our smiles and positive attitude from day 1 as we kept on persevering through the tough times together!
