Always we begin again

Always we begin again

St Benedict

At the last moment I had to cancel my Overland hike from Dove Lake to Lake St Claire in Tasmania in April. My father’s surgery was urgent and I was the only family member available to look after him post-op.

I forgot my disappointment as I coached my father through his rehab and watched the weather forecast for the Cradle Mountain area: metre-deep snow and biting cold winds. Three of the group bailed out on the third day. Another broke her arm when she slipped on an icy boardwalk. The guides said they’d been afraid of losing the group in the white-out.

Another opportunity to go with the leaders has come up at the end of January. Surely no snow then? Or at least not metres deep.

I’m training again in earnest and looking forward to the challenge and the company. It’ll be an Australian pilgrimage led by Sarah Bachelard and good preparation for the Camino Primitivo I hope to walk in Spain next year–Covid allowing!

What are you planning for 2022?
