All's forgiven. I'm going to give Blogger another shot. Perhaps things have improved in the 3+ years I've been absent.
The Aussie blogging engine I've been using has been great but I'm just a little nervous because the administrators appear to have fallen silent for almost two years now. I don't want to find my blogs suddenly dissappearing into the ether. On the other hand, I don't expect Google to be vanishing any time soon. They seem to be an amazing company.
While I've been away (from Blogger that is), I've racked up approx 50 entries describing my adventures trekking in the Tasmanian wilderness. These have ranged from gentle family strolls to reasonably intense solo treks in trying conditions.
In past 6 months, my blog has been sorely neglected but the walking has continued. Consequently, there are several adventures to catch up on. There's also the dozens of walks from previous years to write about before my memories fade.
If blogger performs well, I may eventually drag my entries across. In the meantime, if you have not already done so, please check out my blog at www.blognow.com.au/tastrekker
