Have been wanting to walk this one for ages... day trip, off track.
Without waking the whole household, I quietly drove out of our driveway at 4am, moon still full & bright in the heavens above.
I'm always a little anxious driving into the area where this track is located....there's 4 river crossing to negotiate before
you park your car & walk the last couple of km's to the start of the track.
Since my car's only 2wd, I was counting on a recent dry spell, to keep those crossings nice & low. No problems....
After a couple of hours of constant climbing under the forest canopy, over, under fallen tree's, through patches of stinging nettles,
around landslides, I finally located the overgrown crash site.
Only view on the way up....
5 mins climb above the crash site is small shaded camp area, where I slung my Grand Trunk double, fell into it,
ate a few snacks & drank from my camelbak while my body cooled down.
Except for a small tiger, a pencil thin white lipped & a gorgeous 2m python warming themselves in the sunny patches on the track,
the return trip was fairly uneventful.
The crash is covered in more detail here. It's a sad sad story.
