Good advice.Just confirming it is 3 times in 2 hr 30 mins (@ 2 1/2).I probably could do 4, still at same pace or little slower but I have to add 45 mins there and 45 mins back to Mt Dandy making it a long day out. Still got to do the household chores too
QUOTE(Fordy @ 3 Jun 2012, 06:39 PM) [snapback]14069[/snapback]If you are doing 3 repeats of the Glasgow track comfortably then your training preparations are going really well.hmmm 'comfortably'… hmmmm, the third could be better discribed as Clumsily 2 hour climbs, is that in reference to the real Kokoda track?
Yes, the Glasgow track is rocky, uneven, slippery due to loose rock/stone not mud. I do it 3 times a session to feel I made the trip worthwhile. Would I be right in saying that's 2hr 30 mins for the 3 up & backs?
Perfect directions to Mt St leonards. I went up and back today and had a very good day.It is 7.5 km, some sections steep but quite easy under foot (not rough and slippery).I went up in 2 hr 30 mins and came down in 1 hr 38 mins.Compared to Dona Buang, hmmm, Mt DB definately has many more sections to it where you have to plan your steps and watch…[Read more]

The info…[Read more]
Hi all, I realise this forum is a getting on a bit but I have a simple question,Can someone, in detail, tell me where the "High Lead Track at Powelltown" is. Eg where I park the car, then where do I go. I have been looking at maps and cannot see it.ThanksGeoffrey
Hey Howie,I so happen to be traveling to Adelaide for Easter and am going to go up the side of Mount Lofty, apparently there is a cafe at the top in which my wife intends to stop at while I (we) do the hill a couple more times.
OK, I have made a decision. I am going with the Scarpas. I feel I will need lightness on my side.When I returned the Mammut boots I went to a different outlet of Mountain Designs and was served by a boy who looked no more than 18 years old. I said I was returning these as I thought they may be too heavy for Kokoda. The boy said yes they are, and…[Read more]
