Hi Sarah,
We had to bail out at Mac Springs and head down Howitt Spur, where my brother picked us up. We mis-calculated a day of hiking and we were traveling slower than we had anticipated (10-12km per day, rather than 14-16km). It would have worked out that we had the last day without food. Considering the calories we were going through, and the unpredictability of the situation, we took the safe option. We will be back around Easter to complete it (King Billy to Hotham).

A great learning experience as it was.
Cheers,
Nick
