 This year was quite extraordinary in that the walk attracted 38 walkers who planned to complete the 46.kilometres. Maurie Bloom was heard commenting, -"​these day walks always attract a lot of people"​. It took Jan a few moments to quieten the excited chatter and give us our instructions for the day. We would meet up on the hour, every hour, to ensure everyone was coping and after lunch it would be every bushwalker for himiherself. This year was quite extraordinary in that the walk attracted 38 walkers who planned to complete the 46.kilometres.

 On a hillside in the Ivlegalong Valley beneath a spreading Eucalypt, Rob Webb's ashes were scattered and his spirit allowed to run free. In a brief ceremony, over 40 of Rob's many friends listened to Jan Mohandas recall some of Rob's outdoor experiences and his love of the Bush. On a hillside in the Ivlegalong Valley beneath a spreading Eucalypt, Rob Webb's ashes were scattered and his spirit allowed to run free.

 My veteran was right about being at the back. By the time I'd unpacked my first-aid kit and helped out a fellow walker with blisters, Jan was calling out that we were on our way again. This may well have been a blessing in disguise as I had no time to sit down and stiffen up. In fact I drank my cup of steaming black coffee as I walked down the road. My veteran was right about being at the back.
