Stephen joined me for the first 5.4 km in Palgrave West, which was his longest excursion yet. He has had absolutely no trouble building up his fitness quickly. This was a mix of hiking, jogging and waterskiing behind him as he pulled hard. He hasn't pulled me onto my face yet but that day is coming for sure.
I've been working to prepare for Wilderness Traverse. The last couple of weeks are always intense.
