oops, pressed the wrong button and made a new post by mistake ... delte the other please ...

the whole thing, except for the epping to berowra bit, which is pretty much just boring, being mostly along a highway in any case ...

but basically, all the rest of it, all 200-odd kms of it ... no food drops, etc ... at this stage, planning on late jan / early feb, for 12-15 days ...

so about 14k a day, while carrying all your food etc?? now when i did the south coast walk, 26k, 2 days, 18kg pack (i over packed :oops: ), i was buggered by the end of the 1st day. Ok, so taking into account that there are most likely people twice as fit as me, and who can pack alot better, basically, best case scenario = 14ks a day, with 15kg pack cuz u are travelling for 12-15 days with no food stops, with a very fit person = 4-5 days until they keel over and die :D And thats assuming your not carrying much water, as you need atleast 1.5L a day = 1.5kg in water x 15 days :roll:

no offence buuuuut........

Now Now Ozzy

Now now Ozzy, he may be fitter then you think? Not that I am one to talk I get tired just walking to the water cooler in the office. 200k sounds like quite a hike. So you have actually done this hike? I think a nice park by a stream with a TV and fridge in the RV and air con is a must have item.

lol ozzy, no offence taken :P ... not so much fitness, as just better packing ...

last time my gf & i did the south coast (back in jan or feb i think it was), we each had a tad under 10kg, and we had a nice port with our dinner of marinated roo steaks, sitting on the dunes at north era ... :lol:

as for your question Joy ... nope, haven't done it in its entirety before, but have done bits and pieces of it ... last walk of similar length we did was a few months ago, when we went to tassie early july this year ... we did the overland track + walls of jerusalem + frenchman's cap as one trip without restocking, which ended up taking 16 days, averaging about 17km a day ... t'was a bit cold, with daytime temperatures mostly in the below-zero ranges, and most places had ice covering the ground, but was great fun!! :P

Postby Joy » Wed Oct 19, 2005 11:13 pm

Err I don't know about these sub zero conditions but bits and pieces I could manage. Would love to get some pics and a story line on your next trip we could post it on the Parks review.

most of my piccies are just scenery shots, but anyways ...

but here's one of my favourites from one of last year's hiking trips ... and, erm ... that's a NATURAL rock formation, i swear ... although it IS in a protected area of national park ...

Well that is quite the rock. Not sure why the link is not working, I tried converting to a IMG but still did not work but you can still copy and paste.

Yes that is the ides pics like that with a overview of the region would be great content for our readers. Those will get you a plug, for the $ we would need prety good stories hopefully covering a region, i.e. a few parks etc.
