 lead off from Bogong and although our Long Spur was a headache, this was largely due to poor tracking. Such a track would not be following the Great Divide which you will notice doubles back from Mt Hotham around Omeo and Benatbra. Hereabouts it is low and developed for agriculture. I would suggest two alternatives ... down the Long Spur to Glen Valley, then transport through Omeo to Benambra. From BenaMbra, the Tin Mines Track leads finally to Kosciusko via The Pilot and the Ramshead Range. The other alternative would be to follow the Long Spur until it connects with Mt Wills, then Mt Wills, Glen Wills, across to Gibbs Creek, over Mt Gibbs and on to the Buenbar Hut track to Tom Groggin and then the Leatherbarrel route to Dead Horse Gap and Kosciusko. (A further suggestion still from Benambra on to the Nunniong Plain, the Cobberas, the Pilot, Kosciusko.) lead off from Bogong and although our Long Spur was a headache, this was largely due to poor tracking.

 trust you have had patience with MB during this outline of routes. Pour over your maps and you toe; will sae a dozen routes for the choosing. Many places are tracked ... many tracks shown or pre-existing have gone because of lack of use, or fires or washaways, or simply because it has been ndbody'​s business to care for them. To my knowledge no Huts for General Public use exist anywhere in the area planned. No wonder one needs to be a virile walker to make the grade! These lands are national property ... how often do we hear that they are wasteland because they are seldom visited and only then by the most adventurous! trust you have had patience with MB during this outline of routes.
