Any girls out there keen to walk from Canberra to Walhalla? Looking at 42 days, 5 food drops. I have logistics sorted just need companion. I'm 48 and track fit, have walked Canberra to Mt Howitt in 2010 attempt. Oh and I'm a girl who's husband doesn't want her to go solo!!

Anne, if your food drops are not in then you may need to plan them carefully. Some Victorian roads are closed until the Thursday before Cup Day, the second Tuesday in November. Even then, roads may be closed until much later if the conditions are poor, like last year. Except for the Barries, which has tanks, water should be okay for most of the journey. Barry Saddle to Catherine Saddle is a long day, and water at Viking Saddle may be a long way down. There's a lot of information in the AAWT forum.

Melbourne Cup Day is the 1st Tuesady in November. The 2nd Tuesday in November is when the horse I back finishes the race.
I nearly had a psychic girlfriend but she dumped me before I met her.

Do tell, is that the horse that started in 2017, or is it from a 2016 start?
