I have enrolled on the International Mountain Leader award programme with the Mountain Training Association. Becoming IML is far from easy or quick to achieve. It will take a good few years and quite a few trips overseas to gain log book experience days and do the training courses and assessments. On this road I will go to the Polish Tatra mountains in June to trek and get some days in. I like Poland and its people generally. I was last in Poland in 1997. Will see if things have changed, maybe it is now more pricey. In late October I am booked to do the IML summer training course at Plas y Brenin in Snowdonia, north Wales.
