The Bibbulmun Track 2013 in aid of Epilepsy Action
This was my first real foray into the world of long distance hiking, the likes of which I plan to experience again! On the 27 September 2013, my 50th birthday, I embarked on a journey of 1003 km, walking the Bibbulmun Track, in South-Western Australia, to raise money for Epilepsy Action. I completed that walk 52 days later, on 17 November 2013.
I'd like to thank all that supported me. Thanks to your generous donations I managed to raise £2265.23 for this worthy cause.
Anyone who happens to read my ramblings will notice that the posts had dried up over the past four months. Fear not, I am still alive and very well! My attention to the blog has been remiss as I have been embroiled and a little overwhelmed by a special project that has now reached its conclusion and I am happy to announce here!
The law condemns the man or woman Who steals a goose from off a common: But lets the greater villain loose Who steals the common from the goose.
A rambler ascending from Belstone with the intention of reaching the summit of Cosdon, will likely pass a fine granite post close to the boundary wall of Skaigh known as Ska Corner (Grid SX 63307 93312). Closer inspection will reveal the intriguing inscriptions 'SZ1' and 'DC1’.
