It was a day test walk, there was no leader, and the party almost entirely of prospectives. We decided to go on. Near Marley, with the darting black and white body already causing some irritationI managed to slither down a rock and sprain an ankle. We bound it with a great length of elastic bandage and went on. I contrived to slip and sit down in the outlet from Marley Lagoon, so with wet tail, wrenched ankle, and not the least little bit happy, we passed towards Wattamolla. Hereabouts the track becomes narrow, a slender thread of sand through dense underbrush and, as I limped along at a meagre rate of knots, the dratted little beast would hurl himself past brushing my uncertain legs, prop, and dart back again. Several times I was nearly thrown.

 +Some people think they are mad; parents think that it is a craze that will soon wear off; girl friends (the non-bushwalking kind) are furious with them; dogs love them; policemen ​tolerate them; train guards and engine drivers are openly envious of them. 
 When Bushwalkers aren't planning a trip they are thinking about the one that they did last. They live by, with, and for bushwalking and regard it not only as a sport but as a wonderful feeling, for after a hard day's walking, through some of Australia'​s roughest country, to camp on lush green grass with a warm fire and tummies full is a blissful feeling beyond compare. When Bushwalkers aren't planning a trip they are thinking about the one that they did last.

-NEWS FOR LAZY BONES OR HIP HIP HOORAY!+
 There are some rugged folks who can throw themselves down on a cold slab of concrete and sleep like babes. These tough people do not even mind a few boulders or roots in their tents. It's all the same to them. Some of us, however, prefer a little grass or a few leaves and a hollow where the hip will come. Many folks cast envious eyes at rubber air beds but balance the weight against the comfort and leave them at home. There are some rugged folks who can throw themselves down on a cold slab of concrete and sleep like babes.

-Now, however, Paddy has got the problem solved. He has on order some lightweight air-beds made from tough plastic. They will medsure 36" x 27h and provide comfort and warmth from shoulder to hip. The cost will be about 35/- and the weight less than one pound. Stock expected in a week or two.
