 The Nostalgia Night and the Dinner were most enjoyable as both events attracted so many of our old Club colleagues of half a century, whilst the general fraternal spirit of both evenings added to their lustre. The Nostalgia Night and the Dinner were most enjoyable as both events attracted so many of our old Club colleagues of half a century, whilst the general fraternal spirit of both evenings added to their lustre.

 One member of that party became my mate during many miles of walking. His name was Gordon Manell. When he told me his name it sounded a chord in my mind. On arrival home I asked my father did he know someone by the name of Manell. "Oh, yes", he said. "When I was a night officer on the railway he was also one of the officers."​ He explained their friendship, when Gordon'​s father used to nurse me when I was a baby and my father nursed Gordon. One member of that party became my mate during many miles of walking.

-That was the start of a profound ​frindship. We became known as the hermits because we always set up our own camp and campfire. We had our own special menus, our specialty ​being salmon kedgeree followed by apricot sponge and custard. We lived well on our walking trips. We did become attached to another group who included Gordon Smith, Jack Lynch and Jean Travis (who married Gordon Manell later), Nanette Gorringe (who married Jack Lynch), Jess Martin and the Mullins sisters.+That was the start of a profound ​friendship.

-At this time I was working at The Sydney Morning Herald and one of my jobs necessitated working from eleven at night to eight into the next day. This meant that I had a few hours to spare on Saturday mornings, during which time I did some exploring before meeting the rest of the party at a prearranged rendezvous later in the afternoon. Some of my wanderings were in the area west of Heathcote and Waterfall. I found this to be a very interesting and little known area without any tracks or signs of any human activity. On one of my trips I reached a small insignificant stream which flowed in an easterly direction towards Heathcote Creek. This insignificant stream developed into a series of small crystal clear pools with a potentially ideal camping area. Having ​discoverd ​this delightful area I decided to keep its location to myself.+At this time I was working at The Sydney Morning Herald and one of my jobs necessitated working from eleven at night to eight into the next day.

 I did tell Gordon that I had found a beautiful area but I would not tell him where it was. He knew the region I had been exploring so at every chance he had he would try and locate it. He would set his tent somewhere near Kingfisher Pool and explore the surrounding country side. Where the stream entered Heathcote Creek it was still insignificant so Gordon ignored it. But one day he did decide to follow this stream and he discovered this idyllic spot. He immediately told the Club and soon it became a very popular rendezvous - Morella Karong (1936). I did tell Gordon that I had found a beautiful area but I would not tell him where it was.

 Our plan was to circumnavigate Dove Lake. On the road to the lake the heavens opened, and the wind howled. The first leg of the track climbed through forest to Hanson'​sPeak;​ this section was wet, but sheltered from the wind. On the way we met a group who had just left Hanson'​s Peak, and they warned us of strong wind ahead. Thinking that it couldn'​t be much worse than the wind we had already experienced,​ we went on. Soon after, we climbed above the treeline, and met the full force of the howling gale. Hanson'​s Peak was bare, exposed and incredibly windy - the sleet was blowing horizontally across the ridge. If I hadn't held onto the rocks, I would have been blown off my feet; as it was I was severely buffeted and stumbled frequently. The parts where there was nothing to hold were the worst, especially as these parts tended to be extremely narrow, with a 1000 foot drop on either side. The Gray's were wearing plastic ponchoes, which in no time were ripped to shreds by the wind. Our plan was to circumnavigate Dove Lake.

 We descended to Wilk's Lake, a hanging lake ringed with waterfalls, and then sidled high above Dove Lake in rainforest - sheltered from the wind at last. The rainforest was beautiful; mossy, green, and dripping. However, the track was steep, muddy and slippery, so much of the time was spent watching our feet instead of admiring the rainforest. We descended further and walked around the shore of Dove Lake, then back along the road to Waldheim. Looking back across the lake, our entire route was shrouded in grey cloud, which merged into the grey waters of the lake. We descended to Wilk's Lake, a hanging lake ringed with waterfalls, and then sidled high above Dove Lake in rainforest - sheltered from the wind at last.

-After the wind and sleet, the hut was luxurious; we stripped off our clothes, wrung the water out, warmed ourselves, and thankfully donned ​pajamas, the only dry clothes we had. Barbara rigged an elaborate network of ropes around the hut on which she hung all the clothes. Every so often each piece would be moved one place along the ropes to ensure that everything had a turn over the stove. The shoes were lined up beside the stove. It was still raining and the wind was howling when we went to bed, so we decided that if it was still raining tomorrow, we would leave the mountains and go to the reputedly sunny East coast.+After the wind and sleet, the hut was luxurious; we stripped off our clothes, wrung the water out, warmed ourselves, and thankfully donned ​pyjamas, the only dry clothes we had.

-be cooled immediately to minimize the damage to the overheated flesh. Examination then showed a blister about 10 cm high completely around the ankle area with all the skin blistered, broken and lifting away.+The first reaction of the unfortunate bystander was to pull the jogger and sock off but somehow we managed to get the offended foot into a water bucket. It is essential that a burn be cooled immediately to minimize the damage to the overheated flesh. Examination then showed a blister about 10 cm high completely around the ankle area with all the skin blistered, broken and lifting away. 
 What to do, with at least a four hour walk out and then another couple of hours to hospital. After an earlier casualty experience, some of us carried "​Betadine"​ an antiseptic which had been highly recommended. It was decided to cut open a plastic bag, liberally smear it with the "​Betadine"​ cream, wrap the plastic bag around the ankle and then cover it with an elastic bandage. Coupled with the difficulties of applying an antiseptic to the wound any other covering would have caused later problems with adhesion. What to do, with at least a four hour walk out and then another couple of hours to hospital.

-On the way in we had deluging, cold rain, and decided rather than run the risk of the ankle freezing up it would be best to walk as continuously as possible. This was done except for a + 
-very brief stop for lunch in a rock shelter, where all of us with no injury were glad to get moving again. Apart from a numbing sensation the patient did not experience a great deal of pain, possibly because the burn did not extend greatly into the shoe area.+On the way in we had deluging, cold rain, and decided rather than run the risk of the ankle freezing up it would be best to walk as continuously as possible.

 The casualty doctor commented on our procedure and said it was the best method that could have been adopted to minimise the subsequent treatment. The casualty doctor commented on our procedure and said it was the best method that could have been adopted to minimise the subsequent treatment.

 So you've just retired from the printery and you never want to see an off-set again. WRONG. Here's what you are really after, a nice cosy once a month printing job to keep the ink under your fingernails. Pick up the phone and tell Stan you want the job. So you've just retired from the printery and you never want to see an off-set again. WRONG.
