 There were also several songs commonly sung around camp fires and at Reunions which gave favourable publicity for boots - indeed, treated them as a vital part of the bush walking scene... more about that later. There were also several songs commonly sung around camp fires and at Reunions which gave favourable publicity for boots - indeed, treated them as a vital part of the bush walking scene... more about that later.
  
-This thinking originated with the reading of an advance copy of Dot Butler'​s biography "The Barefoot Bush Walker",​ and coincidentally an article by Errol Sheedy in the January magazine telling how he was lured away from his original boots into sandshoes. This reading in turn revived some old memories including Dot travelling on the "Fish Express"​ one Friday evening in 1955 (yes, it was 1st April - All Fools Day) and we were going to Katoomba to take part in Geof Wagg's "85 Miler - Katoomba to Picton"​. From my seat opposite Dot in the same compartment on the train I noticed one of her sandshoes had a decided split in the sole, displaying either a bit of sock or some foot. In horror I drew her attention, and was rewarded with "Oh, dear!" Dot insits ​she added "Oh, well, it will let the water out," (on the many crossings of the Cox River). I was so worried about it, this sensible attitude didn't register properly at the time.+This thinking originated with the reading of an advance copy of Dot Butler'​s biography "The Barefoot Bush Walker",​ and coincidentally an article by Errol Sheedy in the January magazine telling how he was lured away from his original boots into sandshoes.

 Another memory is my own conversion from boots in the 1946-49 period. Earlier, during a number of freelance pre-war walks I had used sneakers - with rubber sole and leather uppers - but after being required to wear boots for about five years (in the army during World War II) and on finding they were standard footwear for most SBW Members in 1947, I submitted to the mode. Not for long. The jolt that went up the shin when walking in hobnailed boots along sealed roads on the last leg into Katoomba, Blackheath or Kiama soon persuaded me "there must be a better way". Another memory is my own conversion from boots in the 1946-49 period.

 Since the sneakers I'd worn earlier were no longer available, I tried sandshoes and quickly became convinced they were adequate in the easy conditions encountered in our Sydney-side bushland. I even made a few converts, including some of the most active of the new members and - almost to my surprise - the sandshoe suddenly "took off". Since the sneakers I'd worn earlier were no longer available, I tried sandshoes and quickly became convinced they were adequate in the easy conditions encountered in our Sydney-side bushland.

-Sinful pride urges me to believe that I had something to do with the widespread adoption of sandshoes for bush walking. Ordinary common-sense persuades me that it is likely other members of our Club and the members of other Clubs were probably moving towards the same conclusion about that time. By 1950 I had finally discarded boots, after a Tasmanian trip, and that wimpish school-boy who had been derided for wearing shoes was doing a bit of gloating over the downfall of the dominant boot. (But was there something else? Did something in my sub-conscious say to me, "You don't have to behave like an Army tank and trample everything down. You can tread softly, go around that prickly hakea, avoid squashing that tiny baronia. You can make the Bush your friend, not something to be beaten down". All I can answer is - yes, for years, walking in my wimpish sandshoes, I always thought the bush was a friendly place, an ally, not an adversary to be defeated.)+Sinful pride urges me to believe that I had something to do with the widespread adoption of sandshoes for bush walking.

 I think the final seal of approval - the apotheothis - came several years ago, when several young people were overdue on a Colo River walk, and Federation'​s Search and Rescue organisation took part in the search. Actually the young people walked out under their own steam a couple of days late, but in the meantime some worried parents had managed to reach the Rescue Headquarters organised by the Police out on the Culoul Range, and one mother sent a large donation to S & R, accompanied by a letter praising the devotion, expertise and kindness of the people "​wearing the dirty sandshoes"​ (the bush walkers). So, the sandshoe had become the mark of the bush walker! I think the final seal of approval - the apotheothis - came several years ago, when several young people were overdue on a Colo River walk, and Federation'​s Search and Rescue organisation took part in the search.

 Bob decided to take a short cut overland here, as the river does a massive 2 1/2 kilometre hairpin bend. So, covered in sun cream and beach attire, carrying our inflated lilos, we headed into the bush to go up, over and down. __NOT SO!__ Bob decided to take a short cut overland here, as the river does a massive 2 1/2 kilometre hairpin bend.

 Correspondence included a letter of return thanks from May Pallin, a letter of thanks from Warwick Blayden for being provided access to the Club's minute books and a letter from Dr. Martin Jaffee thanking us for our donation to the Save the Hacking committee. Correspondence included a letter of return thanks from May Pallin, a letter of thanks from Warwick Blayden for being provided access to the Club's minute books and a letter from Dr. Martin Jaffee thanking us for our donation to the Save the Hacking committee.

 Next came what Bill called the "Club Management Section"​ of the meeting. This dealt with committee decisions regarding the reunion. You probably read about that in last month'​s magazine. The Treasurer'​s Report indicated that we received income of $215 and spent nothing. Next came what Bill called the "Club Management Section"​ of the meeting.

Perhaps I should explain that around this time the weather was extremely hot and dry, and a number of walks were cancelled on safety ​grounds ​and on advice from the relevant authorities due to the risk of bushfires in the walking areas.
