I am suffering from the same cracked heal problem as dod. I had a couple of really deep splits in my right heal until yesterday evening when Tan spent 10 minutes scraping off a good 6 inch piece of dead skin with a cheese grater, as the pumice stone I’d earlier tried was having no effect. It was merely wearing itself down on the prime billtong!
THe Kepler Track was pretty good, albeit really tiring. I expect Tan has told you all about the skin tight trouser with shorts over the top wearing morons who you could guarantee would always be carrying a couple of walking poles just for good measure. Quite ridiculous if you ask me, but obviously the latest walking craze. Started my german tourists no doubt! No offence Jul.
