-The cars were left 3 miles past Yadboro Flats the following morning and we followed the road 'til Kalianna Ridge. The track was very indistinct and the party became disjointed and scattered over several miles on the west side of the castle. Two of the more experienced walkers (again the secretary and Membership secretary) took a wrong turning and were mislaid for 3 - 4 hours, another striking example to prospectives. The track to the castle lead us through a fantostic natural tunnel through the mountains. Immediately after the tunnel, poised on two rocks the party came to a halt for lunch, although not an ideal place, there being no water and only a fire suitable for dwarfs. If you are a slow eater, your lunch will be considerably reduced before you have time to realize that several people are kindly helping demolish your food. I've learnt by experience. +The night was spent on Yadboro Flats and at 4 o'clock while trying to catch a wink, we were rudely awoken by a horn and a thud issued by the secretary and the now membership secretary, who were just making sure everyone was comfortable. What an example to prospectives.
