GSWW: Great South West Walk FKT

After being unable to get into WA for the second year running (No Delirious WEST again). This year the FKT of choice was the Great South West Walk. Down in South Western Victoria, the 250km walk covers forest, the Glenelg River, the Southern Coast and the spectacular headlands just outside of Portland. The trip down to Portland in itself was an adventure as we hit a Roo just outside of Seymour.

Fortunately, the current lockdown rules don't limit the amount of exercise you can do AND this entire FKT route is within the lockdown zone. So it was on!! Speedy early morning section through the bush and streets, running past Bernhard at Pearl Beach (I was ahead of schedule), he then caught up to me at Warrah Trig. And the sun came up as we were hitting the sandy GNW trails on the way to the tip (sounds worst than it is... it's a
