What a lovely hike we all had. I feel sorry for Brigitte Broich who broke her wrist whilst ice skating two days before the start of the hike. The following members were on the hike. Three persons arrived from the UK specially to do the hike. Namely Gaynor McTurk, Sue Emmett and Dave Emmett. The rest of the team was as follows. Yours truly Neil Ransome, Hanneke Stoathamer, Francois van Jaarsveld, Penny Allen, Bruce Rodrigues, Anni Marusich and daughter, Lorraine Handel and Richard Perrelli.
The first night the 12th December those who drove down from Gauteng stayed at the Harkerville hut. The ones from overseas stayed in Knysna and had to be picked up next morning. Bennie tours came to collect us and we were transported to the start of the hike at Goud veld Hut. From there we had to walk 7.5km to Millwood hut for the night stop. Over the next four days we slept in the following huts Rondebosse, Diepwalle, Fisantehoek, and back to Harkerville Hut.
The weather was very good to us, lots of sunshine. The hike was fantastic. Walking through forests, crossing steams, listening to Knysna Loeries, and having great social evenings. What more does one want when you hike on one of the top trails in the country.
