I tried on my gear for my Kokoda trip early next year, my pack was 20kgs boots are comfy and I thought I would add a baby on the front. I headed to the beach towards the sand dunes, it was a beautiful day. The trash talk has already begun with my 2 best mates that are going on this trip with me, it’s great to have a laugh and trash talk each other about who is the fittest and who will need help carrying their gear, this is healthy banter between friends and we know each other really well. It’s only fun if all parties are having fun, if it upsets someone it’s not ok. be mindful of who you joke about.
I walked 6.2 kms my daughter slept the whole way, lots of back sweat but a good morning, we are looking forward to this trip and catching up once again, which is few and far between. Set some goals and work towards them.
