Lots of mud to christen my shoes, and the goretex linings really paid off, no mud or wetness inside the shoes!
Once at the bottom, it was a 17 km road walk to the start of the Waitomo walk. Once there and with night approaching I was happy to hang my hammock in a patch of scrub and brambles. Gotta love hammocks for stealth camping!
Day 37. Today was a bit of a navigational nightmare. It started well enough through rolling farmland.
It was a lazy start the next day too, before we said our farewells. Thanks Jules, Donna, Alex and Zoe, great to see you!
