Day 1 - Wednesday 12/12/07 - Port Davey Track
A new adventure starts!
Today, at 12.55 pm, Matt started out from Scots Peak Dam on the first leg of a walk down to Melaleuca and, maybe, on to Cockle Creek.
Weather was fine, slightly overcast, with not too many march flies to bother him.
His aim for today was to walk to the junction of McKays Track and the Port Davey Track (maybe 3 - 3.5 hours) and camp there. He expects to take 4 days to get to Melaleuca, then 6 or 7 to Cockle Creek.
I don't expect daily updates, especially bearing in mind the problems he had on his previous attempt to paddle down the west coast but, as information comes to hand, I'll keep this site updated.
According to the registration log book no other walkers were planning to do this trip at this time, so he may not meet many, if any, other walkers.
