Youngcare Simpson Desert Challenge 2015 - Day 4

Members of the Youngcare Simpson Desert Challenge 2015 on Day 4

9 May 2015

Day 3 is complete and it was a strong day from all!

The Trekkers reached the night’s camp at around 4:30pm all are still smiling and having fun. They were read out a letter from Todd Winther, Sinnamon Park Resident when they reached camp which has given them some encouragement them to keep going.

They are feeling some very sore feet today but are pushing through. Quote of the trip so far from Scott, “There are feet around like Christmas hams, they’re all cut up!”

To track where they are at through Google Earth you can plug in the below coordinates.

Day 2 Camp: 25°45.2670 S
