Trekking through Tassie!
Plans Change. But living on a boat we are used to that. On a boat however a change in plans is usually due to weather. The scheduled plan for our ‘walk’ in Tasmania wasn’t changed due to weather – but instead due to injury. So four weeks in Tassie tuned into eight weeks, a ‘through –hike’ (depending on your definition) tuned into two ‘section hikes’, and an estimated early-autumn finish turned into a mid-autumn finish; the hike that I’d scheduled to take 30 days to walk still took 30 days to walk, but we actually finished in Dover 53 days after we took our first steps in Devonport.
The attached document is essentially written in my usual diary style, with a bit of an introductory blurb at the front. I apologise for the size. To keep the size down I used mainly ‘small’ copies of the photos and so some of the images may be a bit fuzzy. The word document was 16.6 Meg. I am used to the files getting bigger when I save them as pdf but for some reason the program has increased the size to almost double at 30.3 Meg.
