General Comments

Between the karri forests and the ocean near Peaceful Bay, it is impossible to pick a favourite section.

A couple of snickers per day let you hike a long way

...Everywhere after Dwellingup.


The people I met along the way were extremely generous, having beer, whiskey, wine and chocolate provided to me to help me through.

Personal Reactions

I am still hungry all the time.


Bush rats are sneaky, hang your food or risk sharing it.
