Winter is back – this means the walk season is in full swing. The End 2 End 4 walkers today battled a very windy and wet day. All 80 walkers copped a drenching with the driving rain increasing to gale force on the bare hills north of Cuddlee Creek. Lunch was in the lee of the lower slopes of Mt Gill. Wet, but out of the wind. Soggy socks in squelching boots, and we hadn’t walked thru a creek crossing. In the end we all survived, with smiles on the faces (or was that grimaces’?) as we collected our choccy frog at the final bend. No delays as all jumped into the cars to get home for hot shower/bath and a hot drink. ‘Cept for Nick and Heather who waited for the last walkers to get in safely. Fortunately it’s not often we experience really chilly days with strong wind and driving rain, and I’m not in a hurry for them to return.
