  • Wanted: Hiking Companion

    • Telephone 0427 801 311 (Barbara) or email .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)

    I am looking for a hiking companion to accompany me with finishing the Bibbulmun track. I am currently recovering from cancer that I am still receiving treatment for, therefore, I am limited to only 2-3 day overnight walks at this stage. If you are a compassionate person with an understanding that sometimes I may need a few rest stops, feel free to contact me.

  • For Sale: Low Alpine backpack

    • Telephone (Jack) or email .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)

    Regretfully, selling my Lowe Alpine 45L Beartooth Air used to hike the entire Bibbulmun Track. It sits off your back and is good for weights up to 10-12kg. The side pocket bellows are handy for a goretex and/or fleece. The lower pockets can accommodate a 1.5L bottle. With a hydration bladder, you could carry 6L of water. The top lid loops can be used to carry a sleeping pad. Possibly best used as a couple with your partner carrying the tent or going without a tent as I did in a LiteHike system. Washed and waterproofed after each section hike of the Track. Price: $100.

  • For Sale: Tyvek tent groundsheet

    • Telephone (Steve) or email .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)

    Tyvek is widely used as a groundsheet for protecting the bottom of your tent. It is breathable, waterproof but very tough.

    It is made from high density polyethylene fibres and has a similar feel to paper with a high strength to weight ratio. See www.bushwalk.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=53&t=23794&mobile=on for a discussion on the difference.

    Sold per metre off a 2.7m wide roll.
    61g per square metre, white.
    $20 per metre for BTF members.
    $25 per metre for non-members.

    Technical data sheet available at https://insulation.com.au/data-sheet-download?pid=4459.

    This style (homewrap) is more waterproof, more durable and therefore longer lasting than the 1443r style of Tyvek (which is more suited to waterproof stuff sacks).
