Shot of the Day #87

Earlier this year a couple of mates and I made some history for ourselves…we hiked the famous Overland Track in Tasmania, Australia!

Having very little experience as it were, we managed to finish it, mind you within 5 days despite the recommended 8 days (due to poor planning of a return flight)…btw this can all be done in just over 7hrs by marathon runners :) Nonetheless we experienced some of the most dynamic and pristine landscapes in the world, all the while surviving off rain water (…from tanks),  dehydrated packet food…mostly dhal lentils, and naturally scroggin. We wouldn’t have planned it any other way (…if we planned); and although we did scavenge like possums from some of the better cooks, aka hikers, by the end of it we did feel a great sense of achievement…possibly akin to an adult caveman still being fed and living at home with its parents. So, all in all it was worth the stench of days old body odor, and cooking in the dark just to see this incredible sunset…
