I have been a bushwalker for many years, although not a "extreme" walker. Most of my walks have been in the Great Dividing Range of NSW and the Sierra Nevada in California, although I have walked in various other places in the world. I only have two latest walks online.
The Mittagong to Katoomba walk is an account of the 7-day classic walk in the Blue Mountains.
During Easter 2007 I took my two boys (ages 7 & 10) and another family on a walk up Mt. Solitary, just south of Katoomba. This is interesting because it was an overnight bushwalk with children. We have repeated this walk several times.
In June/July 2007 I spent almost 3 weeks walking 400km across the Simpson Desert, definitely the longest walk I have ever done.
In January 2009 Darcy and I walked down Breakfast Creek to the Cox River, a stinking hot trip made bearable by a cool swim at the end. I hope to add some other walks soon, particularly my exploratory trip around to the South side of Mt Solitary.
