I leave for my next adventure October 28, 2015. I will be attempting a thru hike of New Zealand’s long trail, Te Araroa.  In the native Maori language that translates to “The Long Pathway.”  How long? 3000 kilometers. That is 1860 miles. I start at the northern tip of the North Island at Cape Reinga and head for Bluff at the southern tip of the South Island.

I am super excited. I am also scrambling to get everything done so I can leave for 5+ months. I’m hoping to get wifi often enough to update this blog frequently.

Here’s a great website if you want more info:  http://www.teararoa.org.nz/

    I am one of your niece Mandy’s good friends and have been enjoying following your blog! Have a wonderful trip – I look forward to your updates : )

    Looking forward to details of your trip…like, for instance, will you be just rehydrating your freeze-dried food with cold water, as has worked just fine for you on past thru hikes, I.e., you won’t be using a stove to boil water?

      Hi TarpMan! I will be buying from stores along the way. No home dehydrated meals this time. I’m bringing a stove because I think that will give me more options. Hot food!
