The Expeditions

The hundredth John Dye Expedition took place on November 15th 2004 and the number continues to increase.

When John started his Expeditions there was no way of predicting how popular they would become, or what enthusiastic interest they would arouse in the Explorers, as they've become known. The seventh Expedition was recorded by John, and he started keeping regular records with the ninth Expedition.

Over the now-traditional post-expedition tea in the Blue Parrot (Mave's Pantry), Acharacle, the Explorers often produce sketches and drawings of the day's events - and many of these are included in the Expeditions recorded on the pages below. Another tradition during the walk is the Tunnoch's Wafer ceremony, when John produces an inexhaustible supply of Tunnoch's Caramel Wafers from his leather gunny bag - it's worth going on a walk just for this!
