Hi All

It has been a while since I last posted on this Forum, but we are going to walk the Otter trail to raise Funds for Autism and I would like to do a TR. We are leaving on 11 July 2014 and are a group of 11 friends and family. 6 Adults and 5 kids. Looking forward to a magic experience.

We are hard at work with our training and started to walk with our backpacks.
This passed weekend we went walking in the Langeberg Mountains. The mountains views were spectacular.

At the top we rested while enjoying the view.

Even it being winter time, we loved the wild flowers which were in abundance.

Unfortunately the weather was changing and we had to make our way down before being caught by the rain.

Just more than 3 weeks to go and we can't wait!!

I did the Otter Trail in the 70s, three times. I was young and fit and energetic back then. I loved it. I am so looking forward to this trip report.
