The Bibbulmun Track is a long-distance walking trail in Western Australia. It runs from Kalamunda in the east of Perth to Albany, and is approximately 1,000 kilometers long.

When your first told your terminal they make you write out a list of things yourd like to do if you make it through the other end. One of my items was to walk the Bibbulmun Track in WA. I still haven’t gotten there, my health goes up and down like a yo-yo every time I get a bug and most of my training courses have been on the east coast.

It was researching the thousand kilometer trek that made me realize how futile bugging out would be. Dont get me wrong I believe in having a 1 day bag, a 3 day bag and a 10 day bag for emergencies but to rely on a knapsack to live out of just wont happen.

To trek a thousand kilometers you require food drops and a minimal calorie intake of 3000 calories a day to keep up a 10 to 15 kilometer distance per day. Bugging out is great if you have some where to go that is already set up but with out some where to go you’ll require enough food to last three months with a calorie intake to start a garden and set up adequate shelter. The Alone television show is a good example. They haven’t succeeded in setting up a sustainable system with enough food, its about who takes the longest to starve.

I’m dedicating this year to finishing off training courses and trying to put back on the ten kilo Ive lost in the past year. Then using the next year to get back into rehab and train for the hike. Id like to try and organize sponsors so I’m not only hiking a track but also raising awareness for Transplant Donation and maybe raise money for depression.

Well that’s my goal for two years time.
