During the Term 1 holidays I embarked on a three day hike through Deep Creek Conservation Park with my friend Alice. It took a lot of planning before hand
but it was a really great experience. I learnt lots about planning every detail, as I had to map out the walk, book the campsites and organise the
correct equipment, which we borrowed from the Outdoor Education Department.
We also had to organise the safety procedures, where we had radios and walkie-talkies so we could always be in contact with my family at base camp. As well as planning I also had to learn about perseverance on the walk. There was no turning back once we started walking and no way to pull out. I had also injured my toe the day before and was struggling with the pain of that.
Alice helped me through and made it quite fun by playing games such as, I spy, along the way. It was an awesome experience down at Deep Creek, it is such a beautiful place with so much amazing wildlife. The walk was definitely a challenge but I leant so much from it and will definitely do something like it again.
