I like my hiking a little rough. Challenging. A chance to get out of my comfort zone - like being on the trail after dark, with just a head torch and rock cairns to find the way. Or struggling with navigation and having the thought "Am I sleeping rough tonight?" (I haven't yet!) Or bashing my way through ridiculously thick bush, while cursing the guide book that made it sound so easy. It can be hard at the time, but the sense of achievement when I come out the other end makes it all worthwhile. AND I've got another good story with which to regale my friends!
Maybe you'd like this too. You're welcome to join us on the next adventure...
You DON'T need to be a super experienced bush-walker. We have walks to suit different levels of fitness, experience and appetite for challenge. You'll need appropriate clothing plus gear necessary to be safe and comfortable for hikes in the back country. (If you're not sure what you need, just ask. )
You DO need to have the right attitude. This is not a group for whiners or sooks. If the hill is steep, dig deep. If the weather turns grim, grin and bear it. If the group is lost in diabolical bush, have a chuckle then help figure a way out. If someone is struggling, give them a hand.
You get the idea. :-)
I look forward to seeing you on the trail!
From April 2016 we are using an event-based fees system, where you pay a small fee to attend individual events. See the Fees page for more information.
We have an active Facebook group for discussing all things hiking. Find at https://www.facebook.com/groups/14631366040...
