 On Friday night, 3rd. August, 1934, Jack Kaske (a friend of mine), and I left the train at Katoomba en route for Kanangra Walls. We proposed travelling via Megalong Valley, Breakfast Creek, Coxs River and Kanangra Creek. It was extremely cold as we moved along the bitumen road in the direction of the marked tree. Our fingers and ears were completely devoid of feeling and a light drizzle of rain didn't add to our cheer. It was a great relief to start the descent into the valley but care was necessary, for, as a result of the recent rains Nellies glen was extremely slippery... At times the track became a watercourse and one hole in the middle of the path was quite eight feet deep! Near Camp Creek we tarried to light a fire, and endeavour to warm our innards with soup. On Friday night, 3rd.

 Fortunately none of the searchers had got further than the hotel, and we parted on good terms with both the policeman and the owner of the horses, the latter promising us really first class animals if ever we came back again. Fortunately none of the searchers had got further than the hotel, and we parted on good terms with both the policeman and the owner of the horses, the latter promising us really first class animals if ever we came back again.

 Practically every pedestrian camper suffers at some time or other from H. P. (Heavy Pack). It generally comes on in the first mile or two and lasts according to the stamina of the camper (and the length of the trip) from a few hours to several days. H.P. is a serious complaint and should not be treated lightly. It has spoilt the enjoyment of many a trip and should therefore be given weighty consideration. Your friends can't tell you about it, because generally speaking they don't know. Short of jettisoning part of the camp gear there is practically no cure for H.P. once the trip has begun. Practically every pedestrian camper suffers at some time or other from H. P. (Heavy Pack).
