Day 61

Start:  Coffs Harbour Finish:  Coffs Harbour Distance:  0 Total:  965 Today was a much needed day of rest. It was my last day off before I finish my walk on 15 March in Brisbane.  I can’t say that I slept in late because I still woke up around 6:00, but I refused to get out … Continue reading »

Day 60

Start:  Urunga Finish:  Coffs Harbour Distance:  18 Total:  965 I was back on the bus this morning, returning to the small town of Urunga where I ended my walking day yesterday.

Day 57

Start:  Kempsey Finish:  Eungai  Distance:  21 Total:  906 I really never know what to expect from the weather when I go to bed at night.

Day 56

Start:  Telegraph Point Finish:  Kempsey Distance:  18 Total:  885 Last night I was fretting over how today would play out because I didn’t know how I was getting 18 miles back down the road to where I stopped walking yesterday. But never worry about things you have no control over.  I’ve learned by now it … Continue reading »

Luckily for me it’s 1:30 in the afternoon and I’m already nice and cool in my motel room in Kempsey.  I knew the heat and humidity would be an … Continue reading »

Day 53

Start:  Coopernook Finish:  Kew Distance:  18 Total:  850 Another good, productive day of walking but not much “action” to report. I survived the three consecutive meal regiment at the Coopernook gas station with minimal damage to the digestive system so I count that as a win.  When I got up this morning around 7:00, I … Continue reading »

Day 52

Start:  Taree Finish:  Coopernook Distance: 14 Total:  832 Today was an easy day, even though I had a two hour period of rain where I had to get all covered up with my poncho. But when you’re walking through unfamiliar territory, there’s always a hidden surprise waiting just around the corner. Today’s unexpected surprise was … Continue reading »
