This is a practical session for those wanting to become independent on multi-day hikes. It is an ALL WEATHER trip, which means we will be going ahead in most weather conditions unless we deem it unsafe – the idea is to prepare everyone for all weather conditions in the outdoors.

You must attend Bush Skills 1 (Theory) on 1 Feb in order to come on this trip.

Please detail why you want to come on the trip and if you have any other hiking/running/biking experience in the “What Gear I Need” box,

Ronny and I will take the group on an overnight hike (either Mt Solitary or Six Foot Track). We can cover a few skills such as fire-building (without lighting it!) and tarp-building along the way.

You will be paired up, and will together plan:
– Food
– Track notes, pace, stops, precautions for weather events
– Transport in and out
– First aid
– Gear distribution (e.g. cooking equipment) between the pair

Minimum equipment you will need:
– Raincoat
– Pack liner (thick rubbish bag)
– Wool or polyprop layers
– Wool socks
– Sturdy hiking boots
– Basic first aid kit
– Cooker and fuel (shared between a pair)
– Head torch
– Plastic plate/bowl/fork

The club can provide:
– Backpack
– Tent
– Sleeping mat
– Sleeping bag (need to verify)
– Sleeping bag liner (need to verify)
