2019 is Off to a Flying Start
It’s the middle of March and my best intentions to keep the blog up to date have fallen by the wayside.
Unexpected events have thrown our planning for this year into a bit of spin but we are back on track.
We spent January in Tasmania where we had plans to hike trails we couldn’t complete in 2016 due to extensive wildfires. It seems that we may be cursed by the weather gods. Wildfires in Tasmania raged through much of January 2019 and put an end to our explorations. I’ll update the blog with our Tasmania 2019 wonderings. And I’ll try not to inundate you with too many posts at once.
We leave for the US in 2 weeks and will start on the Continental Divide trail about 2 weeks after that. It promises to be an interesting year with record snowfalls in Colorado. We are excited to come back and continue to explore and experience the wild and beautiful landscapes of North America.
Big Congrats to you both on completing six foot track. Bigger Congrats to Corky completing 60k Coastreck 6 days after six foot. Hope all goes well for you both on the Continental Divide trail. Look forward to your updates.Will let you know how we go at six foot, we are doing it 27th April. Cheers Terry
Thank you Terry. We are very happy to have these events out of the way. Good luck with your Six Foot Track hike. The weather should be kinder in April.
I’m very keen to follow your CDT adventure. Thinking about returning to the US for a long hike in 2020, but tossing up between the CDT and doing the PCT again. Off to do the AAWT again next month.
We are a little bit nervous about the CDT this year. Hope to make wise decision as we go along. AAWT is a logistical challenge. Wishing you all the best.
hey Dave we are planning a yoyo of the PCT in 2020 might see you out there 😛
Should be a great adventure.
