BARRINGTON TOPS TREK 2003 – Now Completed


Yes, the big trip is now over. I got home today after completing the trip on Wednesday October 22, 2003. I covered some 77.5km over five days of walking through the Barrington Tops. Though I enjoyed the trek immensely, I came out of it more injured and sore than any other previously. I can’t say that I found it extremely difficult, but still managed to come off not as well as previous trips that were more difficult.

Some how I managed to bust up my left shoulder, got severely sun burnt across the back of my neck resulting in severe blisters, stubbed a big toe and suffered severe impact blisters across the base of my feet and heels so that I couldn’t wear shoes for the entire fifth day. I still haven’t recovered obviously, but have some time until I return to work. The good news for those in the know – I didn’t have any slippery shoes that endangered my life this time out.

Anyhow, for all the news on the trip and photos, visit the Barrington Tops Trek 2003 page.
