 It's well and truly winter time in Sydney and if you're like me, you'll add a couple of kilos at this time of the year. So blame the cooler weather for tucking into a little more nourishment than usual, or instead be creative and tell everyone you are adding a few extra kilos as "conditioning for the Six Foot Track and K to K in September". Whether you intend to participate or not doesn't matter it makes for a great excuse. It's well and truly winter time in Sydney and if you're like me, you'll add a couple of kilos at this time of the year.

 From the pallet of available weather and conditions for this time of year which varies from clear and hot through dull and rainy to a blizzard with snow, Maurice chose clear hot days for every day for us. He had to work to keep it that way. On day 7, his concentration slipped and going across Cool Plain the weather turned quite dull and cool. Maurice you will have to try harder next time. Of course, insects like the same weather and they came out in abundance. There was a continuous swarm of flies around each person: they varied from 747 March Flies to jet fighter flies. At a rest stop part walk up Mount Jagungal, Dick was seen to slap his leg and say "thirty three". This indicated that he was counting his daily March Fly kill. After another two days his total was 462. Well done Dick. You the playing your part in causing the extinction of March flies in certain places. There were mosquitoes mixed in the swarm and some times ants swarming on the ground and legs. At rivers and streams the Ninja Turtles fed dead and disabled flies to small trout, the record fly kill in one slap was seven and they were thrown to the fish. From the pallet of available weather and conditions for this time of year which varies from clear and hot through dull and rainy to a blizzard with snow, Maurice chose clear hot days for every day for us.

 Congratulations to Masumi, who is a visitor and whose only previous bushwalking experience was one day walk, she handled this tough, long walk with strength and perseverance. We hope she takes home good memories of this country. Congratulations to Masumi, who is a visitor and whose only previous bushwalking experience was one day walk, she handled this tough, long walk with strength and perseverance.
