Overland Trail 1988
Thanks to the adventurous Hoban family, we walked the Overland Trail with children who had just turned seven and nine. They managed perfectly, the only problem being that one of them (luckily, not one of mine) ate her entire lolly bag on the first day and had to learn the hard way about the art of rationing. You can see from the final photo the enthusiasm with which they embraced the track.
My records inform me that Bruce and I walked the Overland Trail in 1975, 1988, 1992, 1998 and 1999. This is my favourite, though – the 1988 edition, the first with our children, but by no means the last. Every other time since then has been with our girls.
