 There wasn't a sign of the ghostly Mark or any other Foys, but his "tomb" was plainly occupied. Camping gear lay in a mess on the floor, a pot steamed on the fire, and a lot of empty milk cartons were lying around. But the resident had bolted. Whimsically named for Mark Foy, builder and owner of the Hydro Majestic on the plateau above, the hollow rock shelter known as his tomb was one of various features visited on a Sunday stroll along and around the slopes below the hotel. An old coach road leads down to it from the HM itself. Much carefully built stone walling had gone into the construction of the tracks nearby, perhaps to accommodate the anxieties of Edwardian visitors who didn't want to trip—much less to fall. There wasn't a sign of the ghostly Mark or any other Foys, but his "tomb" was plainly occupied.

 Maurice Smith's walk down Ettrema Creek was already gone by the time the weekend of 11, 12, 13 April came around. It went a week ahead of program. Eddy Giacomel had 6 on his Angorawa Creek, Colo River walk over the 12, 13April. The walk went to program. Greg Bridge moved his Katoomba to Carlons day walk to another day. Anne Maguire's Sunday walk out from Wentworth Falls went to program with a party of 20, but Jim Calloway's Bundeena to Otford test walk the same day suffered a slight wasting away, with numbers dwindling from 16 at the start to 15 at Little Marley. The rot stopped there however, and they caught the 1821 train home. Bill Holland was also out that day with a number approximating 13 on an easy walk along the Grosvenor track. Maurice Smith's walk down Ettrema Creek was already gone by the time the weekend of 11, 12, 13 April came around.

-Bill Capon's stage 1 of the South to North traverse of the Buddawangs on Anzac weekend started with a party of 25 despite the program notes promising long days and thick scrub. The going was very slow and they eventually gave it best and beat a retreat. Tony Holgate reversed the route for his walk out from Kanangra Walls due to low fog and rain on the Friday. He then further modified it to avoid the possibility of water problems on Ti-Willa by coming up Gingra Creek. The party of 16 all participated in the democratic process leading to these decisions no doubt. Dick Weston had 2 starters for his up and down walk out from Carlons Farm but there were no other details. There was no report for Ken Cheng's Cowan to Woy Woy walk scheduled for Saturday 26th. Errol Sheedy was restricted to light duties on doctor's orders when his Cronulla to Sutherland walk came around on the Sunday. Paul Mawhinney agreed to act as substitute leader but there was a bit of an outbreak of democracy and a total of three different trips went. One, under Paul, went to Marley and back. Zol Bodlay and George Mawer led around 12 walkers on a walk to program, and a splinter group went off to look at the beaches, or so they said.+Bill Capon's stage 1 of the South to North traverse of the Budawangs on Anzac weekend started with a party of 25 despite the program notes promising long days and thick scrub.

-I had been looking forward very much to Jim's walk to Claydens Creek. As our group, comprised of fearless leader Jim Rivers, John and Chris Poleson, Paul McCann, Melonie Parker, Merrilyn Sach and myself, set off the weather had cleared and the weekend promised to be great. We passed through the glorious Gaol House Pass and had dropped down another couple of hundred metres heading towards the creek on a track when I stepped onto a partially buried piece of wood which must have been extremely slippery after heavy rain the day before. My right foot shot out to the side and down I went. On the way down I heard a crack from the left ankle region and experienced a wave of nausea from the pain. Having collected myself, I strapped my ankle firmly and decided it "wasn't too bad". However when I stood up and attempted to walk, I realised there was no way I could continue the walk but decide I could hobble out. I emptied out my pack and started what turned out to be a long and painful trek. Jim was marvelous, didn't panic and said "we'll take it slowly and if we don't make it out tonight, we'll camp out and continue on tomorrow. +I had been looking forward very much to Jim's walk to Claydens Creek.

 Walking on flat ground was not so bad, but climbing was agony and without Chris physically supporting me, Jim pulling and the encouragement of the others I could not have done it. We finally reached the cars just before 4 pm, and dear Merrilyn gave up her already spoilt weekend to drive me back to Sydney. Walking on flat ground was not so bad, but climbing was agony and without Chris physically supporting me, Jim pulling and the encouragement of the others I could not have done it.

 I pushed on with physio for one week, and when I complained that I was convinced there were further problems an X-ray was taken which revealed a fracture of the lower end of the fibula. A visit to an orthopaedic surgeon the next day identified the fracture as a "very nasty one" which would require fixation with a plate and screws.  I pushed on with physio for one week, and when I complained that I was convinced there were further problems an X-ray was taken which revealed a fracture of the lower end of the fibula.

Firstly, to thank Jim Rivers for his calm handling of the situation and decisive leadership; and to the rest of the group for their kindness, support, help and care; and secondly to advise all bush walkers when you slip in the bush and on the way down you hear that sickening crack, insist on an X-ray.+Thankfully it is all behind me now and healing will take place with the passage of time.

 The idea to walk the track began some years ago when I had seen mention of it in our SBW magazine and other literature. The challenge of trekking an heritage path from Katoomba to the Jenolan Caves and spending a night at Caves House had great appeal. And also to be out in the bush again, 'under canvas' with the billy boiling, away from the planes, traffic, electronic banking, TV and other contemporary necessities of our everyday lives. The idea to walk the track began some years ago when I had seen mention of it in our SBW magazine and other literature.

-We planned a week's holiday to really enjoy our time in the Blue Mountains. Looking at the Lands Department map, the track was only 46 kilometers long. How hard could that be? We could cover 23 kilometers a day, camp overnight at Alum creek and be at Caves House for afternoon tea the next day. Ah! The fantasies of a novice.+We planned a week's holiday to really enjoy our time in the Blue Mountains. Looking at the Lands Department map, the track was only 46 kilometres long.

 To save time, a taxi transported us to the Explorers Tree, and we started down the fire trail. We were on our way; how marvellous. The packs were heavy, but we had expected that in the first few hours; time for our muscles to become accustomed to these new strains and loads. Down, down we walked, following the descending track to Nellies Glen. Talk about rubber knees ! The surrounding cliffs, resolute guardians of this bushland looked magnificent. To save time, a taxi transported us to the Explorers Tree, and we started down the fire trail.

 We used the river water and added a Puritab to each litre of water. An eagle glided high overhead. Small jumping fish occasionally plopped through the surface of the water chasing the mosquitoes that preferred to join us for their dinner. We marvelled that we had all this to ourselves that evening. Before the sun bade us final farewell, a short period of silence and stillness captured the beauty of this bushland setting. Then ,one cricket started chirping which invited the bush orchestra to join in. The stars also presented themselves as part of the evening's fare by twinkling brightly in the heavens. We used the river water and added a Puritab to each litre of water.

 Our easy pace continued through breakfast, and once again we were ready to walk. Already it was a lot hotter than the previous day. The Bowtells Swing Bridge had to be tried and it was a lot of fun, but we decided to continue along to the original river crossing. After crossing over, the track took a decidedly long and steep inclination. For about two hours we slowly and painfully followed it. We had each internally decided to cadge a lift from any passing vehicle if the chance occurred. Because of our unpreparedness, the walk was becoming an exercise in unnecessary pain rather than an acceptably exciting challenge. Our easy pace continued through breakfast, and once again we were ready to walk.

-Comfortably ensconced in the chariot and out of the heat, we ploughed ever upward and onward, marvelling at the tough hilly track that we didn't have to lug our packs over. I felt such a sense of relief. I will be more careful with my irreverent attitude to these vehicles in the future. Our driver told us that sixteen out of the twenty kilometers from Coxs River to the picnic grounds is all uphill. We passed by Alum Creek. The water is drinkable from here, but there is no accessible water from there to the highway.+Comfortably ensconced in the chariot and out of the heat, we ploughed ever upward and onward, marvelling at the tough hilly track that we didn't have to lug our packs over.

 We noticed how dry it was along the Black Range fire trail. Reaching the gravel pit, the 'Black Range road' sign had been relocated and now pointed to the right fork, whereas the map showed it going straight ahead. We could have alighted at the Forestry HQ picnic grounds, but decided to accept a further lift to Binda Flats and thanked our driver for his assistance in getting us there. We noticed how dry it was along the Black Range fire trail.
