The Scouts and Cubs combined together to walk a section of the Six Foot Track, starting at the Explorers Tree near Katooomba. The Scouts headed off at intervals in their patrols with maps, compasses and two-way radios for lunch at Old Ford Crossing – half way to Cox’s River. The Cubs, Leaders and some Parents followed, having camped the prior night at Old Ford Reserve. After lunch, the Scouts continued on to Cox’s River where they camped the night. The Cubs stayed on at their camp for an afternoon of activities. The next day the Scouts returned to Old Ford Reserve for lunch with the Cubs. Cox’s River was a particularly welcome relief from the hot weather for the Scouts.
