140. Walk from Te Kuiti to Waitomo via Oparure Road & Pehitawa Track with some road walking either side. Not too much going on today…had to cross a few fields full of Bulls but they weren’t fazed.

141. Did the Foot-Whistle glow worm cave tour today which was super cool for a change of pace. A really well done wee tour, with a Kawakawa tea ceremony thrown in. Actually a really good drop! Had a look @ some Moa Bones that they’d discovered in the caves and also had a few at the caving hut I was staying in on display.


Yeah nah, all righty then


Have heard some pretty negative reports on the upcoming section (Pirongia Forest). It is apparently awfully muddy after rain and in winter.

Tune of the Day:

140. Selling the Drama – Live

141. Jungle – Tash Saltana
