Hi! I'm keen to find some hiking companions in SE Qld for day, overnight & multi-day hikes. I'm based on the northern end of the Sunshine Coast, and would like to do a lot more exploring of areas within a day drive of here (that's a lot of exciting options!). I work a rolling shift-work roster, so have 3.5 days off every week for adventures. Unfortunately, these are often weekdays, making it much harder to find companions, hence the need for this note...
I'm female, mid 30's, fit, fairly experienced in hiking, easy-going and restful company (apparently), extensive first aid training, have lightweight hike/camp gear, 4wd van, sit-on-top kayaks x2.
The catch? I'm a photographer... so sometimes frustrating to those who prefer a fast hike
Ideally, I'd be so happy doing one decent multi-day hike and at least one or two day/overnight trips per month... that seems like a pretty good work-life balance
Also, have 3 weeks holiday coming up in early August... keen to have a big adventure (so any suggestions appreciated)!
My interests run along the lines of conservation, environmentalism, low-impact travel and getting a long way away from the beaten track.
I'd love to talk to any of you who might be interested & see if we'd get along... looking forward to hearing from you!
