25 thoughts on “Disappointment

  1. F#ck!! All that planning and all that gear and trail food and….and F#ck! Sorry but I’m upset I think I have a tiny idea of just what went into planning this, so sorry…stay…elevated.

  2. Sorry, Kate. That totally sucks! But on the bright side, you have lots of time to get ready for next year. Keep your blog up so those of us not at Snowbird can check in on your progress toward recovery. Had my fingers crossed for your journey, guess now it’s just a different journey.

  3. I’m so sorry Kate! I can only imagine your disappointment. I wish you a speedy recovery!

  4. Kate – I’m sorry at this news! It must feel like a huge anticlimax after all the prep and training. Whatever will you do with 24 boxes of supplies? LOL! They’ll last till next year, right? So this is not a defeat, just a tactical withdrawal until conditions are ripe to conquer the CDT!

    1. Thanks Simon! Yep, huge anticlimax is a pretty apt description! My freeze dried meals will keep for next year. A lot of the bars won’t, but I know this little grocery store that may do a deal with me 😉

  5. Really sad, but it’s a nice time of the year for waves in Byron Bay ! Buy you a surfboard ?

  6. Hey Neighbor, Sounds like a pretty bad deal, I’m sorry. But as they say in the Himalaya “Mountain (or trail) not go away Siaebe (sp?)” Here’s to a fast recovery, and the future realization of your dreams.


  7. So sorry for your Kate, what a disappointment. Speedy recovery – enjoy some R&R time, and as you said, the trail will always be there for you to embrace at a later date.

  8. Oh Kate, we are devastated for you. We admire your resilience and optimism but we are still devastated for you!! Much love and many hugs and kisses from the Richards girls xoxoxo

  9. Richard also thinks this means you are fated to spend a season in Perisher to truly appreciate Snowbird!!

  10. So sorry to hear this Kate! You’re a champion and I hope you have a speedy recovery. I also hope you get some nice relaxing done. Chin up x

  11. Bad luck. So you were walking with a tibial fracture for the past couple of weeks. Mmmm…you must be one tough sheila. Can you post your best MR image on the blog? Can you finish CDT on a trail horse? Enjoyed the blog.

    1. Simon, shall do! Just getting back from Australia, I’ll let you know when it’s up! No horse, even better, on foot… But next year!

  12. Shooooooot. Love you. Maybe now u will just have to come to the boat for r and r. Besos us
