Hi Triathletes

I have been reticent about posting on this forum. Not being a triathlete, I felt I did not belong. However, Michelle thought that this event I am taking part in might be of interest to endurance athletes.

It is a 3-4 month walk touching on 4 deserts - The Gibson, Tanami, Great and Little Sandy Deserts in Western Australia.

The track I am walking is the Canning Stock Route.

A SPOT tracker will record my progress.

I arrive in Kalgoorlie, Australia 5th May. One week of preparation before I go on the trail. The supply drops will be done by first driving the whole route, dropping supplies of water and food 21km apart. This will take us two weeks. It is slow going even by 4x4. Then at Billiluna the support vehicle leaves me and I start my walk down the Canning.

Let you know how it goes.
