[Hope everyone is enjoying their holidays with some good laughs, friends, family, and plenty of good vibes — oh and don’t forget laughter … essential if you ask me] After returning from the bike tour I decided I was going to head into the bush for a four day hike on the back end of the Overland Track. The bush-walking (read: hike into the bush/forest) I decided to do was about four days into Pine Valley on the tail end of the Overland Track (a popular track that lots of people do that takes 7 days and heads a long distance from Cradle Mountain to Lake St. Clair where I started).

This adventure proved to be a pretty intense experience for me for lots of reasons. Most of those you’ll see at the bottom in my summary.

[Apologies for the potentially lameness of this post. I can’t get the downloading of pics working on this crapola computer]

So I rolled into Tasmania (land of cool chilled out people, big mountains obviously not as big as ours back home but whatever, and friendly people). I’ve been staying with a fellow friend and Oteshite Mr. Ed Parker and his amazing girlfriend Sof. They setup a room and have given me free rain to do whatever I wish while I ‘m with them.

After the first day of arriving her I ended up heading down to Port Arthur. This tourist junction is chalked full of some pretty amazing history (some tragic). Basically, this settlement was used to contain criminals of all different shapes and sizes. What made it different than most prisons is that they were attempting to try and reform inmates through hard labour, some cruel punishment, and other techniques. It really surprised me to see the types of life sentences that people were receiving. Like a life sentence for things like stealing a loaf of bread and some milk (yah no joke life for that!). But it was amazing to see all the energy put into that settlement by the inmates and realize that most didn’t really deserve the way they had been treated.
