Observations after a five day hiking trip:
- But the view is great.
- Two pairs of socks is the only way to live life.
- ALWAYS APPLY SUNSCREEN AND INSECT REPELLENT EVERY TWENTY MINUTES. IF YOU DON’T NATURE WILL GET YOU.
- Don’t bring a potato hiking. Don’t. You will only carry it around the Otways for five days before brining it home and putting it in an omelette. It’s not worth it.
- Wear a hat.
- Tiger snakes. Also brown snakes. Keep out of grass.
- Don’t bother with tents. Sleep out and wake up covered in dew and creepy crawlies. Unlike the potato, it’s very worth it.
- Gummy bear trail mix.
- GUMMY BEAR TRAIL MIX.
- The wilderness is great, because when Donald Trump gets elected, you don’t have to be there to watch the internet explode. Instead you can sit at the top of Ryan’s Den and watch the sunset, before going to bed, waking up at 5:55 and watching the sunrise.
- It’s much easier to wake up at 5:55 when you’re about the watch the sun rise from Ryan’s Den.
- Showers are overrated.
- Deodorant is not.
- Sunscreen. Insect repellent.
- North is usually where the ocean isn’t.
- They used to deforest the Otways to make tissues. TISSUES.
- Walking in people’s footsteps is a great way to not lose your footing when crossing a beach with twenty kilos on your back.
- My schoolbag is so light. It’s ridiculous.
- Insect repellent. Sunscreen.
- Rehydrated food is not as bad as trying to cook a potato. Crunchy lentils ftw.
- Think carefully before descending 350 stairs onto a beach that may or may not be crossable. You do not want to go up those 350 stairs.
- Insect repellent.
Here are some photos I took.
Wow, look at all those great and mostly sideways pictures. Idk how to fix that. Sorry.
