General Comments

Took me awhile but unfortunately one has to work to. Managed to finish before my 50th.

Food/Supplies Comments

Always seemed to carry too much food

Favourite Section

Peaceful bay to Boat Harbour even though it was raining and blowing a gale.


Card games with hiking mates after tea, swimming at Franklin River campsite, boy it was cold!. Sun set at West Cape Howe camp site, still clear nights.

Personal Reactions

Enjoyed both times of solitude and company


Quokas, roos alive and dead, bandicoots

Your Best Equipment

Shower rose for my water bladder and inner tent.

Advice for Others

Even if you can only did bits at a time, get out there.
