Spreadsheet to Steps

Updated: Aug 30, 2018

As the good old Chinese proverb goes "a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step". And my first one will be this Sunday, 1st of July. By the end of August I hope that my steps will be equal to '=SUM(F:F)' on my spreadsheet.

In tune with the intent of this walk, I will keep to myself during '=SUM(E:E)' and will not be posting until my return.

Thank you very much to Webmaster extraordinaire Priscilla Kwok for updating this blog on daily basis.

After 543,164 uninterrupted steps (394km) I decided to take a bus between Orbost (Vic) and Eden (NSW). It was a hard decision to make and I am very disappointed.

Hi Augustin ... so good to see you on the Opera House steps. Congratulations on an epic journey. It's only a few weeks since I met you in the Merimbula Visitor Info Centre and I can remember describing the vista from the cliffs at Coaldale and entry into the Royal National Park. Bundeena is where my mother and her two sisters sat out the war years managing the general store. It's such a peaceful town still. I imagine you can see where the founders got the name New South Wales from after you walked the green rolling hills of our coast. Good to see some green actually. Cheers, Liz

Hi, I'm glad you got to Chamberlain Lookout at Kianinny Bay. I can see you liked it. Hope you have somewhere cosy to stay tonight and more than a block of chocolate to eat. :)
