This four-day trip did happen, solo.
Met many older people doing longer MTB (150km loops in a day) and bushwalking trips - 8 day, followed by one night's rest then 9 day wilderness walks while at Thredbo YHA.

Thank you all for reading, and consideration.

Hi there,

Just reading this now, good to hear you did it solo. I did the walk in Easter from Geehi flats (to Townsend, Kosi, onto Ramshead and finish at Dead Horse gap car park). Had thought about cycling back to Geehi but was a bit worried about leaving my bike in the bush so ended up leaving a second vehicle at Dead Horse gap for the return home. Where did you leave your bike?
