200km down, 773 to go

200 Kms completed. I’ve made it to the Walpole Motel after a long and gruelling 32 Kms walk through the Tingle Forrest. It was one of those spur of the moment decisions. I’d arrived at the Franklyn Hut at 12:15, stopped, and thought, I could make it to Walpole tonight. What I didn’t see coming was the 3 Kms walk uphill – it just kept going and going and going!!! Eventually arrived at the top with nothing left in my legs, but had to keep going. The track certainly teaches you many lessons.

What was beautiful today was the walk amongst the Tingle Trees. So stunning, so mysterious and so awe inspiring. So different to the coastal section.

Arrived at the motel and enjoy a hot shower – joyous.
