By the time we had eaten and packed our gear it was quite high and we set off back to the Evans Look Out road to leave our packs for the taxi manto collect and take into Blackheath.

His early walking activities were entirely ​in the racing direction. Someone from the N.S.W. Walking Club picked him out from a number of his school mates as something out of the ordinary ​and suggested he should join the Club. He did so in 1921and in 1922 he proved the discernment of his nominator by winning the 20 miles championship. Since the he has won about 20 championships,​ both Club and State. At present he holds the State 32 to 50 miles track-walking,​ and the Australian record for 24 hours. He also held for some while the Australian 50 miles championship,​ but a Victorian subsequently made better time on the same test.

-Scenery being one of the main attractions of bushwalking it may seem trange that Gordon has taken only two important walks far afield, one to Barrington and one to Tumut and Kosciusko. The explanation is that what he has seen of other +

-parts only makes him love the southern Blue Mountains more. However, this year he +
- +
-is off to New Zealand and a taste of mountaineering,​ and it will be interesting to hear whether this type of scenery attracts him as much as his beloved Cox and Kawmung. +

-This year is the first year bushualkers have taken part in race-walking,​ and +

-Gordon thought this a pity since the other method would have put the N.S.TL Walking Club on a sounder basis financially,​ and better able to send teams to +
