Who would have thought three years ago today that this blog would have over 1100 posts, a million words plus of content, (ten+ novels’ worth!) over 15,000 images, and so many followers – someone every minute!
Some recent doings: Exploring a 6,000 year old Brock at Camster Northern Scotland last week:
My daughter Merrin launched it with this Facebook post back in 2015. She said, ‘Lately I have been working on a new website and Facebook page for my dad Steve’s incredible Hiking Blog “The Ultralight Hiker“. If you or someone you know is interested in hiking, canoeing, camping, hunting etc in Gippsland, Australia and New Zealand you might like to take a look or spread the word. The content has been years in the making so you will find hundreds of posts on everything from places to go, the best light weight equipment, inspiring explorers, wildlife and more. Visit: www.theultralighthiker.com for more! Thank you.’

Facebook also reminds me this morning that this was also the day three years ago when I published this story on Facebook and my old hiking blog: http://www.theultralighthiker.com/dusky-track-canoeing-the-seaforth/ What an adventure that was, but one I will probably not repeat if I want to continue breathing!
