General Comments

Thanks to all the volunteers maintaining the shelters and track, you do such a good job and we can rely on them always being water for our overnight stop.

Food/Supplies Comments

As i did it sectional generally got supplies for each section before I get started.

Favourite Section

Balingup to Walpole


Enjoying all the fine shelters especially Waalegh Long Point, Rame Head and Blackwood

Personal Reactions

Having now done two end to end sectional - not sure if I will do another compete one at over 70 but hope to enjoy, Balingup to Walpole for many years to come.


Quite varied this year - very sparse on the northern section, Collie to Kalamunda possibly due to burns/bush fire, but highlight and echindna near Dookanelly.

Your Best Equipment

My thermarest mattress

Your Worst Equipment

I always bring far too light sleeping bag and then have to wear a fleece at night.

Advice for Others

Those first time should do a short trial section and weigh everything before you put it in the bag.
