We can dream... Next significant walking idea

Postby GPSGuided » Mon 20 Mar, 2017 5:06 pm

It's autumn and walking season. Apart from all the local tracks, have you been thinking and planning of a significant walk in the future? Perhaps something caught your attention in a magazine, blog or Youtube?

Mine? Multi-day trek of Jiankou section of the Great Wall. A wild and spectacular section just north of Beijing. UL is a must for the challenges posed. Dreaming of wild camps on the Great Wall...
Just move it!

I would quite like to walk across the last few pieces of the Blue Mountains (from Penrith to Lithgow) that I haven't yet done.

Over the years, I've done various day-walks (accessible by train) that link Penrith to Springwood, and Lawson to Lithgow. So I just have to find a way to get from Springwood to Lawson. There's not an obvious walking route between Springwood and Lawson, so I might need to go from Glenbrook to Wentworth Falls, but that's extremely long for a day-walk.

I usually seem to spend more time daydreaming about places I could go than actually walking... I think I need to do something about it!

My longstanding plan for the future is the Dusky Track in New Zealand, but I doubt it's going to happen anytime soon.

Ribuck, I think it'd be possible with a generous dose of bush bashing. Good luck if you do try to forge a connection from Springwood to Lawson- id be interested to read a trip report!

LOVE the Great Wall idea!

I too spend far more time daydreaming about hikes than actually hiking. It's a sad state of affairs. I think I'd like to take on the AAWT or the Hume and Hovell trail (though I don't know much about it yet - first heard about it just a few days ago) but they're both very pie in the sky. I'd love to get back to Peru and do more than just the Inca Trail and Colca Canyon. Everywhere, really. There's so much to see, but as a parent of young kids it won't be happening for a good while. This is why I love reading other people's stories.

I'm in Tarkine mode.
Pieman Heads to Temma, North Norfolk Range (Hazelton, Lily, Woody, etc), Meredith Range, Livingstone, Parsons Hood, etc etc etc.

Although the Eastern Arthurs would suffice. And Denisons/Curly/Innes High Rocky. And the Frankland/Wilmot traverse, including Giblin and the Folded Range and the White Monoliths and . . .

...ooooops, just woke up.
