I wonder the same thing about the tracks. You know what governments are like with cutting out and cutting back. There have been NPWS cut backs in staff levels for years. There are just a hand full of workers taking care of ever increasing work areas. I think they, the rangers, will do the best they can, but it will take same time – a bit sad!
Thanks for you highly positive comments, Cranky Bear, they make me want to jump in the car, rush back down there, and do the track again. Can’t do that though, I’ve got a growing list of walks that need me to walk them, so for now it will just have to go on the “to do again some time” list. Thanks for taking the time to watch it and for enthusiasm increasing comments!
Our videos here on Hammock Forums are more real life than anything on TV. I feel like I get to travel to where ever the report is from too. It’s great to be able to travel so far, do a hike along and be back in time for... well, anything!
The vines start life at the top of the trees, after their seed has being number twoed out of a bird, that lands somewhere in a tree and leaves a message. The vine then grows down to get to some water. Then, it wraps itself around the tree and strangles it to death, that’s why they’re call Strangler Figs. The tree rots away, over time, leaving the Fig standing on its own.
I call them zig-zags, everyone else calls the switch-backs, or switches. Yes, I did briefly think much snakes would like the downed trees. Chubby Mullets and Elvis was a coincidence. lol Let’s not up set the Elvis fan club! No comment on the snoring, don’t want to get you in more trouble than you put yourself in – thin ice, MedicineMan lol
It was surprisingly cool behind both curtain waterfalls. I’m not sure if there was much of a difference between the water and the rock face though, I didn’t that much notice. As soon as I walked past that water dripping down and got between the water and the rocks, I could feel a big difference. At a guess, 10C, 50F. Oh and yes, you must find yourself a waterfall to walk behind, and you must film it, so I can see!
Thanks for the “break it up” suggestion, I’ve spent most of today thinking about the pros and cons of doing that. I’ve already made the next video, it’s 23 minutes, so I can keep thinking about which way to do it until the one after that.
Anyway, MedicineMan, thanks for the three lots of watching and for all the great comments! It was super great to hear from you, and you gave me something to think about all day.
Come to think of it, there is another place, just west of there, where there are “almost” too many waterfalls. Last time I did some of them I got waterfall overload. That was the “Waterfall Wonderland” video I made a while ago. I’d have to take you there, for sure!
Long kevlar pants and shirt is a great idea! I’ll look into it!
