Yes. Of course. As this discussion highlights, it's a great excuse for overindulging in chocolate.

I found 2 positive to getting into 'bagging' things:

1. My list of places I wanted to visit was getting more and more distant and involving more and more driving. Bagging summits & lakes & islands has given me the motivation to visit many local places I'd never viewed as interesting. And many of them turn out to be wonderful
2. I've never been good at day-tramps. The minimum that seemed worth getting out of bed for was an overnighter, preferably a 4-dayer ... fading to minimum of a week as I ran out of new local short trips.

So: lack of imagination, I realise. But anything that gets me, and others, out of that door and into the hills (or lakes & rivers) has gotta be good.

Not a great chocolate fan. But I can see it might have the same effect!

Anyway, mp, back to your list.
More problems: It has both Mt Forestier and High Yellow Bluff, but not Mt Macgregor, which is the highest peak on the Forestier Peninsula. It has Tatnells Hill instead of the nearby, higher, Lichen Hill.

Back to chocolate. I actually had a day out yesterday without chocolate. Took it, didn't eat it. Felt weird.
The pizza on the way home more than made up for it, however.

If it were me, I would definitely say eight chocolate bars is too much for me. My stomach tends to shutdown when I’m walking and I often have to force myself to eat the evening meal and sometimes I skip it.
Except for home made trail mix which includes a little chocolate, my sweet reward comes at the end of the day after dinner (or no dinner) as one or two squares of Lindt chocolate or a hot chocolate (depending on the weather and how I’m feeling).
