I'm planning a solo walk in the Vic Alps, about 7-10 days, leaving soon. I've walked a lot in Tas, but not at all in Vic. I was injured earlier this year, & had to stop walking. I'm much better now, but still wish/need to be cautious with how much I carry.
I'd need to do at least one food drop between Rumpff & Hotham. I'm wondering if trying to get a drop close to the Mt Speculation campsite is a good idea/possible? Could I drive to Lake Cobbler, then take the drop to near Mt Koonika, or closer to the AAWT, along Speculation Track? What is this track like?
Unfortunately, I only have a 2WD car! Can that make it as far as Lake Cobbler? I read somewhere on some government site that it is not recommended to drive 2WDs past the Bennies as the track is too rough. Is this still/true? overkill?
Is there another place/s that is better for a food drop? Ideally, a choice with minimal walking or pushing my old car along rutted tracks. I've driven my car along a lot of dirt roads in Tassie, but one of these days it's gonna be too much!
Great forum. I've been learning a lot.
(ps: I tried to post several important questions weeks ago, but got an error.
I emailed the admin, but got no reply.
Hope it works this time...)
