Poll:How often do you bushwalk

Postby wildwanderer » Tue 21 Aug, 2018 5:09 pm

Its been a few years since one of these was done according to my forum searchfu.
Fairly self explanatory.

Choose one option from Day walk and one option for Overnight.

Definitions.
Overnight means one or more nights sleeping in the outdoors while bushwalking. (not car camping)
Bushwalk means a planned walk through the bush for an hour or more. Taking a stroll through the local park on your way home from the pub does not count! :mrgreen:

If you do not go on overnight trips choose the less than once every 2 years option.

Maybe it would be best to have daywalk and overnight walk separated into two different threads?

Where is the "Nowhere near as often as I'd like to" option?

They are both linked to the "How old are you?" survey/thread.

I ticked the "once every four months" box but the reality is that for me it is probably two to four multi dayers per year. However all take place in either late Autumn or early Spring. So in a very small time window.

I can't tick any day walks because my (almost) daily grind up a fire trail for fitness doesn't meet the definition.

Interesting Results so far.

As of 14 September aprox 50 members have given their input into the survey. (95 total responces with two poll questions to be answered and a few people only answered one so I’ve estimated 50)
Seems we are a regularly walking bunch.. not unexpected from a bushwalk forum.

Day walks
Most respondents indicated they went on day walks atleast every 2 weeks. With once a week or once every two weeks neck and neck on 14 votes each. That’s a lot of bushwalking!

Overnight multiday walks
The multiday walks result was a bit more polarised. With two distinct groups.

The first group made up of regular multi-dayers spending 1+ nights under 'canvas' atleast once a month.

The 2nd group heading out aprox every 4 -6 months. It was mentioned to me that some head out less frequently but undertake long trips with 5-10 days not uncommon.
With work, families and for some busy retired lives its impressive we all get in the bush as often as we do! There was even one lucky person who camps out every week!

Although responded but have to say the frequency is quite seasonal.
Just move it!
