Guest Speakers – Jeff Buzza. 35 years ago Gayle, himself & 3 year old Chris spent 3 months, on horseback after reading the National Trial Guide. This was before mobile phones, digital cameras, solar panels, satellite phones etc. The trail runs from Cooktown to Healesville & covers 5330 km following the Great Dividing Range. At the time Jeff had a high pressure job & decided it was time to spend the time with family. 2 horses were for riding & 1 was a packhorse. Each of them had a saddle bad for personal belongings. The horse carried a tent, 2 mattresses, 3 sleeping bags, cooking gear, outdoor shower, water canteens. Fantastic experience making them realise you don’t need all the luxuries in life & they were able to experience the kindness of others they encountered.
