Angie is chilling out at Francine's while Francine is at work. ( Poor girl!)
Angie is packing and repacking, checking list after list and making new lists. Trying to get everything together for the trip to Papua New Guinea.
This evening after work we will be training together for the first time. Francine, Karen Ross (friend of Francine's) and I. It will be dark so the challenge is not only to tackle the steps and the hills but without seeing where I am going. I'll see how well I measure up to the Aussie trained hiker?? I can only keep my fingers crossed cause I have to keep my toes undone to keep up.
This American girl had not met Wilson Rd. Hill, a very long and steep hill in the Terrigal area and I had to do it twice to prove that I could do it with a smile. A little slower the second time. The Aussie girls win the Wilson Rd. Hill!! Way to go Francine and Karen!
WE ARE 2 TRAVELERS WHO MET IN 2005 IN SCOTLAND. WE HAD SUCH A GOOD TIME WE DECIDED TO TAKE ON SOUTH AMERICA AND THE INCA TRAIL IN 2007. WE DECIDED THAT OUR NEXT ADVENTURE IN 2009 WOULD BE A TRIP OF A LIFETIME. AND THAT TRIP TOOK US FROM MOROCCO TO POLAND. THEN IN 2011 SYDNEY AUSTRALIA TO PAPUA NEW GUINEA FOR A HIKE IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF THE BRAVE AND COURAGEOUS AUSSIE MEN DURING WWII, THE KOKODA TRACK. THEN CHRISTMAS 2012 WE FOUND OURSELVES IN ARGENTINA AND ANTARCTICA. IT PROVED TO BE AN EPIC JOURNEY.
