-Don Finch presented the Walks Report showing a fairly good roll-up for May jaunts. Barbara Evans had a party of 17 to Blue Gum, and Jim Calloway 8 starters on a day walk in National Park. On the same weekend Gladys Roberts'​ Middle Harbour Creek trip brought out six. Ron Knightley'​s school holiday camp at Carlon'​s attracted 7 adults and 9 youngesters, and John White'​s Instructional at Murphy'​s Glen was officially recorded as 20, including 12 prospectives - actually the numbers were somewhat higher. On May 14-15 Geoff Whitby'​s Grose River trip had 4 prospectives and an unspecified number of members, and Jack Perry in National Park for the Sunday also mentioned prospectives only (2 of 'em).+Don Finch presented the Walks Report showing a fairly good roll-up for May jaunts.

 Out of this arises the need to store every little facet of information in the brain. We realise that for some this may be difficult, perhaps impossible so it may be as well to note the information down on paper. One facet of information which was seemingly worthless at first later proved highly practical. This was how and where to find a cesstiomiades fly-infected leave. This leaf is bored with millions of little holes which the cess fly drills for the benefit of all walkers. There could never be more ideal tea-strainer than a cesstiomiades fly-infested leaf. Forget about the use of bracken and centrifugal methods and find a cesstiomiades fly-infested leaf. Out of this arises the need to store every little facet of information in the brain.

-We will now take the topic of food more generally into consideration. Many practical thoughts arise here for food presents countless problems on a walk. Many walkers will derive comfort from the practical suggestions as regards food contained herein. They may also derive amoebic dysentry and other such disintegrating diseases. In this respect dates are invaluable for they have great food value and always give you a good run for your money. ​Beleive ​it or not Energy chocolate is a Lifesaver. Never be without it. Along the most exhausting stretches you may suddenly collapse out of control. Reach for your block of Energy chocolate for it is so readily digestable and one little nibble gives you great strength to scoff the rest of it. Make sure that this collapse occurs well out of sight of other people otherwise you may have to share the goodies. Many people find the early stages of the walk exhausting and this is why you rarely see Chocolate after the first couple of hours. Some have actually felt exhausted even before the start of the walk and been grateful for their Energy chocolate.+We will now take the topic of food more generally into consideration.

-Eggs are loaded with vitamins. They are as good as pills but perhaps not so reliable. An egg is so vitamin packed because it is really a healthy chook in another form and most poultry-farmers simply stuff their birds with pills to keep them in good shape. The main thing to avoid is stacking boiled eggs with unboiled eggs because it is very hard to tell which is which. A simple scientific test to find out if the egg is boiled or unboiled is to crack the egg open. Sometimes this happeris ​when some lousy twit sits on your pack without asking. Firstly, scrape the egg from the walls of your pack. Don't eat it even if the sight of it makes your mouth water. Don't throw it away either for all the great film stars use egg as a facial conditioner. In just what sort of condition it leaves the face we are not sure.+Eggs are loaded with vitamins.

 The need for an all round improve in Nature Study was apparent on the Kanangra walk. F'​instance on one occasion a skeleton was found littered around and doubt about its identity arose. Russ Derbidge, whose best friend was an ethnologist named them emu bones and astounded his audience with his knowledge and his scientific approach. However, this conclusion was questioned by Laurie who pointed out that emus don't have fur on their legs and generally try to live and die in the Western Division and not in the Blue Mountains. When it was suggested that the emu had probably got killed at a fancy-dress ball in Bourke and had been dragged from there into the mountains by some rapacious dingo everyone was in a quandry. Whilst we're on this topic of nature it is worthwhile knowing how to distinguish between the male and female Raintree. Raintrees literally blanket the Blue Mountains in profusion because they like it there. They like cold blistering winds and the babble of freezing streams. Invariably you will camp under Raintrees but be sure to set camp under a male one. In the morning you usually make a lot of noise shaking the moisture off your ground sheet. It's rather puzzling where this moisture comes from. The Raintrees react turbulently to this noise and shower those below with water. The female tree, like all females is unpredictable. Sometimes they do it, sometimes they don't. The male tree on the other hand does it all the time even at the drop of a hat. Especially if you drop it noisily. The need for an all round improve in Nature Study was apparent on the Kanangra walk.

-The participants of the Kanangra walk came from a variety of occupations. It is this variety that adds strength and vitality to the club. Everyone considered the walk rewarding in some way or another and so that others may experience such joy many offers of assistance for future walks have been received. Margaret has offered to be depth guage on the next walk again. If you're not sure of the depth of a stream then holler for a margaret. She manages to fall into every deep water hole. In fact shs is a professional depth guager and we are greatly indebted to her.+The participants of the Kanangra walk came from a variety of occupations.

 Don loves to sing. His enthusiasm for song is boundless. When others are frozen stiff you'll still get a gurgle from Don. Your morale soon falls when you get lost and on the next walk should such a situation arise Don has promised to sing his old favourite: "Climb every mountain, search high and low". When you're hopelessly lost the chilling notes of this ballad tingle the spine and boost the morale. It enables you to die in a cheerful mood. Don loves to sing. His enthusiasm for song is boundless.

-Most walkers prefer to spend the night under a proper roof, be it that of a Youth Hostel, hut, Bed and Breakfast place or hotel. In the wilds of Scotland, in the height of summer, camping is quite propular, but not for extended periods. Thus, a pack of much more than 20 lbs is  unnecessary,​ as food is either provided (though one soon tires of bangers, beans and mash) or easily obtainable. We found it very hard to break the home-grown habit of carrying with us enough food to last two to three days. Our large H-frames were the objects of many astonished stares and amazed remarks: "How do you manage to carry ALL THAT?" - a mere 35 lbs. In the midst of such civilisation memories of the warmth and conviviality of camp fires induced a feeling of nostalgia; the substitute of singing around a temperamental kerosene heater somehow lacked something.+Most walkers prefer to spend the night under a proper roof, be it that of a Youth Hostel, hut, Bed and Breakfast place or hotel.

 The interests of walkers are looked after principally by the Ramblers'​ association which is a legally constituted company. It has regional branches, again sub-divided into local areas, each of which conducts meetings and runs a walks programme often featuring combined walks with a club from a neighbouring group. The Ramblers Association makes its profits by organising walking and other recreational type holidays in Europe during the summer months, and by running two walking centres in Great Britain. The interests of walkers are looked after principally by the Ramblers'​ association which is a legally constituted company.

 North Wales offers an interesting variety of walking and climbing and thousands flock there in the summer. The mOuntains are contained in the Snowdonia National Park, with Snowdon the highest at 3360 feet and thirteen others over 3000 feet. Snowdon itself is a fascinating mountain. Four main ridges converge on the summit and along each is at least one well used walking route, some more challenging than others, plus numerous climbing routes, some of which were only put up in the last 15 years. The summit view is extensive, taking in the coast on the one hand with the rest of the Snowdonia massif and the lesser green rolling foothills on the other. For the less energetically inclined, there is a railway to the summit, so that as one crawls up the last steep slope one is greeted by a seething mass of tourists in their shiny shoes and overcoats. Tryfan, another interesting peak, is a wedge shaped hunk of rock and rubble tilting out over a placid lake and is the only mountain in Great Britain in which the use of handholds is essential in the climb to the top. It is almost impossible to get that "away from it all" feeling in Snowdonia, as the main arterial road from North Wales to London runs through the Park. North Wales offers an interesting variety of walking and climbing and thousands flock there in the summer.

-Yorkshire, ​Ehgland's largest country, has much to interest the outdoor enthusiast. In the limestone belt, spelios are active and here is found Gaping Gill, the largest hole in Great Britain, over 400 feet deep. In the height of summer, enterprising students from nearby Leeds Uni. have erected a gadget over the hole to lower tourists into and up again out of the hole at 10/- per head. The vegetation in this area is incredibly green and the white limestone outcrops and the low limestone walls across the fields make a very photogenic landscape. In the north of Yorkshire are the wild and lonely moors, least visited of any area in the whole country.+Yorkshire, ​England's largest country, has much to interest the outdoor enthusiast.

 The Peaks District in Derbyshire, the picnic ground of the citizens of Manchester, is perhaps misleadingly named, containing nothing over 2500 feet. The Kinder Scout Plateau, best known feature of the District, is deeply intersected by channels through its peat bogs, which constitute a challenge to the best of navigators. They are flat and featureless and the channels often trick one into thinking one is on a track; many experienced walkers speak with horror of the bogs in Derbyshire. The Peaks District in Derbyshire, the picnic ground of the citizens of Manchester, is perhaps misleadingly named, containing nothing over 2500 feet.

 The proper angle for viewing is from the Budawang Range itself, a mile or so north from Currockbilly. From that angle you can see how the Ridge reaches out from the main north-south massif, first high, rocky and treeless. About 1 1/2 miles east it plummets down 800 feet into a timbered saddle, then sweeps up 600 or 700 feet to a square forested top. The proper angle for viewing is from the Budawang Range itself, a mile or so north from Currockbilly.

-Two big spurs drop away from the northern face of this bluff. One - the nearer - the westerly - The Ridge - falls quickly at first, then flattens out (flattens! - that's a lie!) and continues to urdulate ​along beyond the upper end of Yadbora Creek. After a couple of miles that look tolerably flat it falls into another saddle, goes up 300-400 ft on to hump-backed Sugarloaf, drops 300 ft and promyny ​rises 500 ft to another square block of mountain. At this point the elevation is about 2600 ft, something over 1000 ft below Currockbilly and 2000 ft above Yadbora. Several ridges plunge off into the creek which has now changed to an easterly course.+Two big spurs drop away from the northern face of this bluff.

-When I traversed the Ridge - or rather, traversed part of it - early in April, I was in a good position to make comprrisons, as it was only a few weeks earlier that I had followed the Gangerang Range out from Kanangra to Mount Moorilla and back - and that's another ridge designed somewhat on the Dig Dipper principle. The main difference lies in the repeated rise and fall of The Ridge while Gangerang is content with one really good saddle - Gabes Gap.+When I traversed the Ridge - or rather, traversed part of it - early in April, I was in a good position to make comparisons, as it was only a few weeks earlier that I had followed the Gangerang Range out from Kanangra to Mount Moorilla and back - and that's another ridge designed somewhat on the Dig Dipper principle.

 There is another important distinction. Gangerang has been trodden by many feet, so that even in the unrelievedly rocky spots you can follow the scraps of many boots - in fact I found Gangerang easier than ever before, the track more obvious, if the gradients unimproved. On The Ridge there had been others before me, but their numbers must have been small, there was little evidence of their passage so picking the way was a "​do-it-yourself"​ job. There is another important distinction.

-Before tackling The Ridge, of course, it was necessary to get to the vicinity of Currockbilly. You may assault it from the rear, coming in off a timber cutter'​s track about six miles north of Mongarlowe: or you can sneak up on it from the north, using another timber trail that leaves the Mongarlowe Road near a property called ​Tilloween ​and following along the crest of Budawang Range. The latter is slightly longer, but gives you a scenic preview of the Ridge and a big sweep of country to east and north.+Before tackling The Ridge, of course, it was necessary to get to the vicinity of Currockbilly.

 With a 3 a.m. departure from Sydney, and using back roads from Marulan via Bungonia and Dallen Ford, I de-bussed at 8.45 on the Saturday morning near Willoween. The dawn had been misty and clouds were still lifting off the Budawang Range as I crossed the paddocks to pick up the logging trail at the foot of the ascent. The day promised brightness, but more heat than I preferred. With a 3 a.m. departure from Sydney, and using back roads from Marulan via Bungonia and Dallen Ford, I de-bussed at 8.45 on the Saturday morning near Willoween.

-It is not much of a climb to the top of Budaway Range at that point, and less than an hour from the car I breasted the ridge and was looking out to a hazy blue gulf with The Castle, Mt. Renwick and Pigeon House forming a jagged ​northeastern ​skyline. The Ridge, much closer, looked quite imposing and when one ran an eye along its turbulent length and mentally worked out times and distances - well, just a bit disquieting.+It is not much of a climb to the top of Budaway Range at that point, and less than an hour from the car I breasted the ridge and was looking out to a hazy blue gulf with The Castle, Mt.

 For something like a mile and a half the timber road continued south along the crown of the range, ascending gradually. Then, just before the ridge narrowed and became rocky, the road ended, and it was a slow scramble through fairly dense undergrowth,​ down to a small saddle and up the other side. For something like a mile and a half the timber road continued south along the crown of the range, ascending gradually.
