Sorry it's been almost 2 weeks since an update. It's a combination of lack of time and of technology and/or reception issues! It is especially time consuming to organise photos from the camera to phone and then to the blog, particularly when the app keeps misbehaving!
It's 0500 on Monday 11th April and we are in Te Kuiti - about to start a longish stretch to Taumarunui. This is likely to take us up to seven days with no resupply opportunities - and won't provide opportunity to update the blog either. However, we intend to head home from there for the winter so i will get on with the blog as soon as e are home! Until then ......
Note that I have reposted this dated 29/3/16 just to keep it in context as, although the following blog post were written after 11/4/16, I have dated them on the actual day of the walking to ensure that the archiving dates make sense!! Make sense??? :-)
Belinda and Anthony (aka Tony) Hadfield made a decision, in their late 50's, to do something a "bit different" and walk New Zealand's 3000km Te Araroa Trail over summer 2015/16 - although updates will now tell you that this plan will take longer now!!. As the old saying goes - "don't leave home 'til you've seen the country"!!
