 Friday October 3rd

Weather: Hi 71 Low 52

On Friday the Traffic was horrible and it rained hard during at night. We set up our tents fairly quickly and we had a good first night.

Saturday October 4th

Weather: Hi 71 Low 52

In the night the rain had made the sand very hard to traverse as we walked up to get onward to the trail. On the trail we took brakes every couple of miles and we made great time. When we got to camp we spent a long time cutting wood to make a shelter whilst a few lads took the wood to build a shelter. We feasted on ramen noodles and had a good night sleep.

Sunday October 5th

Weather: Hi of 61 Low of 37

We did even better on the way back, we made it back 45 minutes faster. We got back to base camp had breakfast and headed home.

Even though it was a hard trip, in the end it was good fun and taught us a lot about backpacking
