Just a quick update until Tracy has time to write this week’s newsletter.
A quiet 30km on the trail today, followed up with 30km tomorrow to test the legs after a rest. Only 3 weeks to go …

Saturday was a relatively straight forward walk from the Eltham Leisure Centre out to Diamond Creek along the Diamond Ck trail with a loop out Allendale Road, Reynolds Road, Perversie Ave and back to the Diamond Ck trail along Main Road.
Sunday was an early start, back along the Diamond Ck trail heading South to the Main Yarra Trail where we headed towards Warrandyte, then out along the Mullum Mullum Creek Trail to Tindalls Road (this is the final section of the Upstream Foundation 50km event.) Then return via the Petty’s Orchard apple festival.
I’ll let the Twitter timeline tell its own story.
And sunrise finds our intrepid band of walkers well into their ramble. “Super!” chimes Dick. “Rather” replies Anne … #OTWM
