 John White gave us a verbal report on the weekend spent by 20 of our members at the Barnardo Boys' Homes. He said that the boys had for the most part not enjoyed a very good start in life, and the Home was run as a home, rather than an institution,​ so as to give them as normal an upbringing as possible. Mr. Green, who was in charge, suggested that we might take some of the boys who lacked normal contacts with the outside world on trips with us. He invited any club members on walks nearby to call and have a cup of tea with his wife and self. Heather Joyce said that it was better to take 2 or 3 boys on a trip than a larger number, so that they would become part of the bushwalker party instead of getting together on their own. David Bennett thought that if we encouraged them to come on walks when they were at the home they would know where to come to when they left. John White gave us a verbal report on the weekend spent by 20 of our members at the Barnardo Boys' Homes.

 "But why should I?" you ask. "I carry 30 lbs and there'​s nothing wrong with my walking."​ Very well, my friend, but have you ever had the pleasure of carrying 10 lbs less - obviously what you've never had you can never miss; try a 20 lb. pack on your next summer weekend trip and I'll guarantee you'll never hump 30 again. And then there are the heavyweight walkers who are really off the beam; struggling up a ridge on a hot day and wishing for the energy of some spritely member of the party, who seems to pace it off so effortlessly. Well, maybe they can't have all the stamina they'd like, but they sure could help themselves no end by shedding a good-sized hunk of that superfluous ballast. There is undoubtedly a critical pack weight (which varies somewhat between different people) where, with moderate walking experience, the pack seems to become an integral part of the body and makes little or no difference to the staying power. As we add avoir-dupois to this critical figure, so the pack begins to act as a powerful brake on the body and holds us back; now the weaker the walker, the more severely will this brake act per additional pound above the critical. It is up to the individual to determine his own critical weight and try to adjust his pack accordingly,​ if he has any desire at all to derive the maximum enjoyment from his recreation. "But why should I?" you ask.

-Having, I hope, established a case for lightweight walking (as if one were needed) I will now prove that it is quite feasible to __start__ off on a summer'​s weekend trip (Friday night - Sunday night) with a gross weight of 20 lbs. on your back, and without any undue hardships, either. If you are more particular in selecting and preparing your gear and are prepared to accept a little more austerity in some directions, you can get this down to 15 lbs. Maybe you can reduce still further but you will start to cut in on essential equipment such as happens with the Marathon pack. You will notice that my lists provide gear for a self-contained walker, and include tents, for even if you share a tent, you will have to carry it yourself (theoretically,​ anyway) for some part of the trip. All weights have actually been determined, not guessed, and while variations in item weights do occur from one article to another, they shouldnot ​be large enough to upset the final figure unduly.+Having, I hope, established a case for lightweight walking (as if one were needed) I will now prove that it is quite feasible to __start__ off on a summer'​s weekend trip (Friday night - Sunday night) with a gross weight of 20 lbs. on your back, and without any undue hardships, either.

-The party for the assault on Big Yengo Mountain was to be Binnsie, Hooper, Admiral and self. In case you are so iggerunt as to be unfamiliar with Mount Yengo it is alleged to be a large flat-topped object, height 2158 feet, eight to ten miles east of Putty on the back road from Windsor to Singleton, and overlooking the Upper McDonald River, some 35 to 40 miles north of its junction with the Hawkesbury near Wisemant ​Ferry. I say "​alleged to be" because, like Cloudmaker, Mount Yengo seems to have quite an attraction for cumulus cloud, and only appears when I'm well away from it.+The party for the assault on Big Yengo Mountain was to be Binnsie, Hooper, Admiral and self.

 The bride (of course) was late, which was a good thing for several other guests whose taxis had been held up in traffic jams on the way. We late ones converged on the doorstep with the waiting priest and photographers and were telling each other in a gush of typical Bushwalker frankness what a fortune each of us had squandered on taxis and here we were ten minutes late in spite of it, when two white ribboned cars drew up at the church, one backwards and bewildered and the other frontwards and in its right mind, and out stepped the bride.

-On the tender air of evening was wafted a faint elusive scent of carnations and hyacinths, and time (and Grace) stood still for one breathless shining instant while Henry took photos. At the threshold of the church stood the bride, gentle and pure as the moonlight, sensitive and soft as starlight, and I'm drawing this picture specially for Geoffo because he, poor fellow, was not there to see it; he was already inside - standing down the front with his back turned and trying to pretend he was waiting in all patience, but the frequent screwing round of his neck so he could look up the aisle and get a glimpse of the doorway through which his Grace would appear gave the game away. To the interested spectators Geoffo'​s guarded performance looked as obvious as Garth getting undressed under a groundsheet on Cronulla beach - and Pete too, the time Betty ran away with his pants and him standing helplessly there clad in nothing but a coating of sand and his hair all wild about his head while half a dozen of us held up a screening groundsheet,​ shouting, "​Hey!!! Bring back my shorts!!!"​ But I digress. Where am I? In Church. Oh yes. I get a side view of the staggeringy ​impeccable second-best man and it is the same Stitt, with every hair in place.

Although a dry season, there is considerable water in the creek and the rocks were damp, slippery and cold, but the fire is warm. __Scene IV__: Camp - Mob is gathered around small camp fire by Don Reed while large one built by Stitt is neglected.
