General:

167. Stillwater > Silverdale > Orewa. Mostly Road walking. Nicest part was the Orewa River Walkway and Orewa coast itself. Threw a ‘double 1’ @ the pub = free pint. Whoop whoop.

168. Started with a nice walk along Orewa Beach but then needed to boost up to the highway as the tide was too high. Walked this until the Puhoi turnoff. Puhoi Pub is a great local. Loads of history on the walls and the people were all amazing. Really friendly owners and staff who looked after me big time.

169. Not a massive amount to write about through these last sections. Followed the Puhoi River up to Ahuroa Road. Then followed bush tracks and 4WD tracks to eventually pop out at Edgerley Road. Slept the night in a barn loft. The owners gave me fresh goats milk, goats cheese and eggs from their own goats and chickens. Awesome wee set up.

170. Kicked off the day with a walk over some farm land to get access to firstly Dome Café and then Dome Forest. I went up Waiwhiu Road to intersect the official trail and complete the last 7km in the bush. Was put up by a legendary couple, Liam and Becs! Felt like a second home, craft beers, great yarns and home cooked meal. Such a great spot!

Body:

Good (x4)

Outlook:

⁃ Focussed on getting the Marsden Point Crossing sorted and ticked off. (x3)

⁃ Bush sections through here are difficult after rain, so not looking forward to tomorrow’s leg.

169. Kung Fu Fighting – Carl Douglas
