Day 201 | Brownie Creek bushcamp: making tracks now

100 km | Heading west total: 9,007 km

I went through a locality called Mathison today that jogged my memory.

My first girlfriend, well, at least in my mind, for almost 75 minutes, was S of the Mathieson variety.

I met her just before my 17th birthday at one of the organised school social events where the separate boys and girls schools got together.

She was sophisticated and switched on (certainly for Nelson in the mid-70s) which I’ll admit greatly interested me even then. And certainly attractive. Of course, I remember she had long dark hair. But I was a bit scared to look at her directly in the eye. I’m sure she’s doing something interesting subsequently.

I guess my sister will know, or be able to find out.

Get onto it gal!
