Oh, by the way: had a fine time jogging up the hill to the top of Mt Kosciuszko on Tuesday - it's not much of a Mt but it'll just have to do. Went back up the hill the next day to descend back to Thredbo on foot - about 12 km, half of which were walked in pouring rain (yay thunderstorms). But I find that nothing is throwing me for a loop, tramping-wise; no matter how steep or how long I'm not having any difficulties. This is, well, wonderful. I'm glad I'm fit. Wish I could find a bathroom scale to see how the weight is doing but I haven't been successful in that regard - mustn't have gone to the right department store... :)
Gonna shut down the computer now and read up on Cape York!
