We organised a family tramp into Woolshed Creek Hut near Mt Somers. It was a family trip because we had Simon, Anita, and their little one, and Clare, and her little one. So it was me, Katie, Gina, and the families.

I ran up Worsley’s and met Simon, Anita, and her friend Sarah at the Flying Nun MTB track. We wandered over to Transmitter Crag and Simon and I did some climbing there. The ladies talked lady-talk, looked after Elayna, and fed us delicious lunch goodies.
