Larapinta 2019

Postby ChrisJHC » Tue 18 Sep, 2018 6:56 pm

I’ve booked my holidays for a solo E2E (West to East) next year.
Flying in to Alice Springs on 1 June then transport to Redbank Gorge (including food drops) on 2 June.

Anyone with the same start date want to share transport costs?

I thought I’d resurrect this thread now that we’re officially two months away from the Larapinta peak season.

Where I’m up to:
- gear mostly sorted - just some minor fine tuning
- new boots being broken in
- flights, hotel and transfer sorted
- dehydrated food sorted
- maps received and itinerary determined.

Training program (life permitting):
- 6-8 km pack hikes on Tuesdays and Thursdays
- longer pack hike one day of the weekend
- gym and/or bike ride other days
- multi-day hikes planned for Easter and May

See you on the Trail!

Fabulous, Chris. I will be walking in various parts of the West Macs during May, so I will just miss out on overlapping with you.

All we need now is some rain!

Hi Chris,

still up for a hiking partner?
I was planning the walk myself, just a week or so later. Could make it work.

I’m good thanks, August,

All prepared for being (mostly) on my own.
