It is with great sadness that I became aware yesterday (April 28, 2008) that Geoff Gibson of the Tingle All Over YHA at Walpole passed away on February 1, 2008. Geoff and Kerry where great supporters of the Bibbulmun Track and its walkers, providing great accommodation and a friendly service.
I consider my “rest-day” at Tingle all Over, Walpole, with Geoff and Kerry, by far best rest day and a time I will remember with fondness.Â I just regret not getting back to stay again with Geoff and Kerry.
One great thing they did, was to keep a photo album of all walkers who passed through their YHA.Â It was most enjoyable flicking back through putting faces to names in logbooks.
Geoff will be deeply missed by all. My deepest sympathy to Kerry and her family.
