Every few years I undertake survival walks in Western Australia's north.
I undertake these walks for the challenges that they present and the lessons that they also offer. And the lessons learned are immense and powerful.
These walks are difficult. Undertaken without food, water and bedding. A pack weight of around 10 kilograms. And they are undertaken at the height of the summer. For the uninitiated these walks could easily and most probably be fatal.
This walk was commenced just after Christmas in 2016 and terminated in early January of 2017. The video shown here was captured on day four just after I'd received notice that my walking partner was pulling out due to threat of a cyclone. So here I'm seen contemplating what that cyclone might mean to my "comfort" levels in the days ahead.
