How many TrailRiders in Australia now?

I, of all people, should know but, as I've said in the previous post I have been a bit disconnected lately and coming back into the world I think it about time for a stock take.

The majority of Australian TrailRiders are in Victoria, courtesy of Parks Victoria and John Kenwright and, at the last count, there were 14 that were publicly announced and available to use. At that stage there were plans for more that I was privy to but not yet to be included in the "official count"

At that stage there were also one in the ACT, one in Tasmania, three in NSW and one in WA so that, at the last count, meant 20 which is the number I've been using loosely for a while.

Hello there and tune in at 10:20

Hello there.

It has been the longest gap (ever) between posts at TrailRider tales as I have struggled with health issues - chiefly an adverse drug reaction to sleeping medication. I am well and truly back on deck and full of things to write about.

The urgent matter, if you read this in Central Victoria, is to tune in today at 10:20 (Thursday 13th October) to ABC Central Victoria and hear Caitlin O'Reilly from Parks Victoria at the Grampians talk about the TrailRiders there and the upcoming sherpa training (another post)
