Walking Partner wanted for Carnarvon Great Walk


#1

Hi, I am a 45 yr married male looking for a walking partner to do the Carnarvon Great Walk.

I am a proud dad of two kids under three, thus why I will be tackling this track alone as mum has to stay back and look after the kids. I am a semi fit person who likes to compete in a couple of Ultra Marathons each year so am not concerned about the physical demands. Its just nice to have somebody to share the experience with.

I plan on completing the walk in 5 days, but can stretch it to 6 if its required for the walking party. I have a bit of flexibility as to when I can do this but am look between the last week of August and the first week of October.

Please let me know if this interests you.

Thanks, Jason

PS: I live in Chinchilla and am happy to pick anybody up if they require a lift and its not to far out of the way. Otherwise get yourself to here and I can take you the rest of the way.

Gudday Jason. Did you get any takers?

I have been thinking about the Carnarvon walk for a while and was thinking of sometime around September - outside the school holidays and before the weather warms up too much.

I spot you quite a few years but I spent 7 weeks trekking in Chile, Argentina and Peru through mid-April to early -June followed by a week of serious climbing in the Corillera Blanca and came back pretty fit. Lost a bit of condition over the last 6 weeks but wouldn’t take long to get it back and I might well be able to make your 5 day target.

I have a car club event on around the Queen’s Birthday weekend but am semi-retired and otherwise pretty flexible. In Brisbane so Chinchilla is on my way.

Let me know if you are still keen.

Hey Gmess, Nice to hear from you. No, no takers yet. I didn’t have high hopes since I didn’t give much notice and it takes a bit to plan something like this. I am still keen but also have a few commitments over the coming 2 months. Kids Birthdays etc. I’m a business owner so pretty flexible with times as long as I can swing staff to cover me while I’m away. I was also contemplating a smaller coastal great walk to for three nights if your interested?

Sent you a message. I have also been looking at the Conondale circuit as something short and close to home that I can fit in without much planning.
