Hi walkers, My name is Silvia. I would love to participate to this walk but I live in Carnegie VIC 3163, quite far from the meeting point (Ringwood Station). I was wondering if anyone is driving from the southern suburbs and would be able to pass through Carnegie or its surroundings so I could car pool to the Ringwood meeting point. Thank you so much! Regards, Silvia
