Getting Ready for Bibbulmun Track

I have booked flights to Perth, Australia for 26 August and plan to start the 1,000km walk on 1 September. My son, Cameron, will walk the first week with me which I am very excited about. Hopefully my teenage grand daughters, Bec and Elle, will join me during their school holidays at some stage.

I am bringing some gear over for them to use so will need to pack carefully so as not to go over the weight restrictions. My gear list has not changed much from what I took on Te Araroa as I had that working well.

The first week of walking will be a shock for my poor body as I have put back on all the weight I lost on the Te Araroa and I have lost a lot of fitness and strength also. However I am sure I will be okay and end up fit and strong by the end and back to looking like the photo below.

  • Can’t wait to liven up my morning coffee with reading an update from you on this new trail. You have inspired me to contemplate walking the North Island of Te Araroa after your last blog. All the best Karen.

  • Good luck! I am sure you will have a very different adventure but you will enjoy it. Don’t try to go too far each day for the first week or so. For better balanced freeze dried meals, check out Radix Nutrition.
