Tra lah lahhh! I leave for a very awesome hike with a bunch of girls in just 2 days. Its a 55km 5 day hike called The Whale Trail I am told it is absolutely beautiful and one of the best hikes ever. They have a 1 to 2 year waiting list so a friend and I were fortunate that another old school friend of mine had space for us.
We don't know the rest of the group but I guess 55kms of hiking will give us plenty of bonding time. The first 2 days are both 15km each and pretty rough but it supposedly gets easier. I have only ever done a one day one night hike so I am a little nervy. I have been praying for my back like crazy and for physio with needling today and then a 2nd session of Bowins therapy on Wed in case it does actually work which I think it just might. I have avoided tennis and surfing and anything else that might make my back worse so I think I am all good to go. Ye olde hiking folk...what to bring, little tips of what we should and shouldn't do, how do we make this as awesome as possible?
PS: Mel jumpy shot will be done on the last day to ensure no injury to 40 year old self.
