Personal Reactions

Unsure what this means

Wildlife

Wrens, Roos, robins, mice, rakali, glimpsed a tiger snake in the Peregrinup Planes, “Pack Animal”(haha), cockatoos (red tail and yellow tail), frogs, sea snails, spiders, sea birds, emus and lots more I can’t remember.

Your Best Equipment

Icebreaker merino wool shirts and underwear, Sea to summit large nylon poncho easy to put on and easy to take off and a great windbreaker. Altra lone peak 5 shoes were great aswell.

Your Worst Equipment

Mountain Designs Carbon Fibre Trek poles.  The poles broke 6 hours into the the hike. Had to be resupplied at Dewellingup with Leki ones.

Advice for Others

Get wool clothes and socks.  Your legs are going to get conditioned between 8 and 11 days and you’re going to find it easy to knock out the kilometres but not at first.
