Did you ever take an extended walk in the dark? No?
Well, - 12 k's in the dark certainly are an amazing experience.
Just get the 5.30pm ferry from Circular Quay to Manly on a Friday night, meet your Tour Guide Ian from Sydney Coast Walks, who are the official providers of "Oxfam Trailwalker" training in Sydney, a bunch of likeminded people and off you gomy first OXFAM Night Training
It was an amazing night, opposed to the forecast it hardly rained and we nearly had full moon all along our way around North Head. We got to hear interesting stories from Sydneys early days, the Q Station and last but not least walking on a trail with a few shy animals but nothing else.
It definitely did take away the initial mixed feelings about walking in the dark, and there will be another official training walk provided on the actual Trailwalker track in early July. Our Team can't wait.
