“Follow me, I’m the Pied Piper”
(Crispian St. Peters – The Pied Piper)
Well, now that I’ve shown what music I was inflicted with as a child …
Last week our training session was organised by the Oxfam Trailwalker people and they did their best Pied Piper impersonation for the many teams and parts of teams who joined in the walk. We walked the second section of the walk, from Churchill National Park to Lysterfield Lake, then turned around and came back again – about 18 km. This was the second section of the trail, which we’d done the previous week and this time it was much easier, with the temperature well below 40°C, it was only 30°C, and our water issues sorted out.
Chris, Sherry and Cristy all had better offers on the day so weren’t able to join in the fun, and Gwen and Frances were still unimpressed with the hill. However, on the return journey we all felt very noble after both helping another team work out where they were on the map, as they were feeling a touch geographically challenged, and helping a lady get her baby’s pram over the gate, as the gate was very narrow and the pram wasn’t.
