Well, would you believe it, we snuck in our first part of the hike, which means we have unofficially started! After visiting various people and getting some more press, buying current maps and checking on burned out closed sections we walked from the official starting point back to our accommodation at Lilacs. Lilacs Cottages - www.lilacs.net.au - are about four kilometers up along the track. Good thing we had bought current maps and I brought an umbrella as we got rained upon and we got lost. Not seriously lost as the track pretty much followed the water anyways, and we had a map, but enough for a giggle. Tomorrow is thus technically a rest day and Sunday we don our heavy packs for the first full day of hiking.
