South Australia, driest state, in the driest continent. Oh yeah!! E2E3 put paid to that old chestnut, On a weekend when 4 walkers had to be rescued from the Heysen Trail near Blinman, E2E3 endured what can only be describes as appalling conditions.
A revised programme, due to an impassable Waukerie Creek, meant the group walked from Dutchman’s Stern to Woolshed Flat on Saturday.
Rainjackets were the order of the day, and stayed on ALL day. If you didn’t have wet feet, you didn’t do the walk. Some woozes in the fast group had to have plunger coffee at the Old Willows Brewery Restaurant, for lunch, however were quickly chased back on track by their leaders.
On Sunday, an impassable road and Waukerie Creek running too high meant cancellation of the Broadview to Wooshed Flat walk. This allowed walkers who had missed part of Saturdays walk, due to the inclement weather and fading light, the opportunity to do a catch up. Others did the Dutchman’s Stern circuit, whilst some just slept in.
