-If a fashion-conscious designer caught a glimpse of some prospectives taking to the track for the first time, I'm sure he would dash to his drawing board and with a few strokes here and there suggest some attire not only comfortable, but also functional and attractive. I remember my own experience as a raw prospective on the trip up Glenbrook Gorge. I arrived for the day in low lace-up kid shoes with kromhyde soles, and a woollen skirt. It poured all afternoon. While I hopped like bandy wallaby from rock to rock, shivering when rain trickled down my collar, Kath Brown enlightened me on the correct and practical attire for bushwalking, plus additional advice on what to wear to bed. By the end of the walk the soles were off the shoes and my knees chafed - so I took her advice about what to wear on the track. But to bed ah, that s a personal choiceThat's where the fun begins.+If a fashion-conscious designer caught a glimpse of some prospectives taking to the track for the first time, I'm sure he would dash to his drawing board and with a few strokes here and there suggest some attire not only comfortable, but also functional __and__ attractive.

-Kath's bedtime story was recalled during the recent holiday weekend. I sat watching a very experienced walker prepare for retiring. On went ski-pants, extra jumpers, night-cap and gloves. A -whole chapter could be written on the nocturnal disguise of bushwalk-ers for some people swear by three pairs of sox, others by hot water bottles, while the head-warmer brigade are a crowd on their own. Some snuggle down into hooded sleeping bags and look like Sherpas on the upper slopes of the Himalayas. Some favour balaclavas, others hark back to a bit of fur like cavemen ancestors, while many look as though they have the mumps - not to mention the ski- cap fans who like to look both warm and attractive+Kath's bedtime story was recalled during the recent holiday weekend.

 +That afternoon we joined the S.S.S.\\ 
 +To enter a cave which was rather a mess\\ 
 +75 feet of ladder we descended in all\\ 
 +And thank goodness none of our bods did fall. 
 + 
 +This ladder was all very well to do down\\ 
 +But to come up, was not so easy we found\\ 
 +So when we were down, a good idea would be\\ 
 +To look around to see what we could see.

 +But Judy and I wouldn't go we said\\

 +There was no space at all to rent. 
 + 
 +The next day brought forth beautiful sunshine\\ 
 +So off to see how many unnamed caves we could find\\ 
 +But this did not eventuate to much\\ 
 +And soon we were thinking of what was for lunch. 
 + 
 +The Signature Cave was one of two left\\ 
 +So down we hopped into that cleft\\ 
 +To find the hole the S.S.S. had blasted\\ 
 +And searching for this, about twenty minutes it lasted. 
 + 
 +This hole went from the Signature to Punchbowl\\ 
 +The excitement of finding it, from the S.S.S. we stole\\
