Starting Hans Heysen trail

Postby digbyg » Tue 02 Jun, 2015 7:23 pm

Just to let everyone know, we start walking the trail on Tuesday 9th June. We will be posting to http://www.facebook.com/footlooseandfree if you would like to share the pain.
Starting at Cape Jervis and planning on 50 days to reach Parachilna Gorge.

The pleasure and pain, perhaps. Best of luck. It will be good to read your foot-loose and fancy-free reports.

Well that trip didn't work out quite the way it was intended. The track is not really suitable for through hikers, although bits of it are spectacular and walk is as good as it can get, a bit like the Vicar's egg. The trip is a bit difficult to find now on facebook, but the story is at https://iamfootlooseandfree.com/2016/04 ... june-2015/ if you want to follow up.
