Loved the experience, it only got better the longer I went!
Fabulous track, fantastic facilities and wonderful hospitality in the towns along the way.
Mostly bought from track towns along the way, was very handy to have a food box kept at North Bannister Roadhouse for me.
Albany-Denmark for the coastal views, Walpole-Northcliffe for the unique landscape & Dwellingup-Kalamunda for views from the hills.
Meeting so many wonderful people in the huts, not something I’d thought about beforehand.
It was great to feel myself getting stronger, mentally & physically, the sense of self-reliance & learning the power of positivity.

Your Best Equipment
All of it! very happy with everything I packed and nothing was useless/dead weight.
Advice for Others
If possible, give yourself time. Without the pressure of time constraints I was able to take time out for rest & wait out storms, made all the difference for me.
