I met Isabell at rock shelter, her 3rd last day. She was doing great, in high spirits and smiling! Really lovely to bump into her and her crew.

Isobel finished her AAWT walk today, according to Facebook. She had quite a few of us worried but with this now under her belt she should be ready for just about anything now.

Personally, I am happy she has finished safe and did not attempt any part of this walk solo as originally intended.

Yes, I concur Mr. Xplora sahib. She could have been in bother doing any part of that trek solo. Good for her that she finished it and came out in one piece.

This thread paints a good picture of a few of the members of this forum.

If you lack hiking experience you are going to die if you attempt a decent walk.

This thread proves you do not need to have x amount of years experience under your belt to be able to go hiking for a decent amount of time.
