Ahipara to Trampers Inn
KM walked today: 22km
Total KM walked: 122km
Shattered, shattered, shattered. My god what a nightmare the “track”, and I use the word lightly. It was straight up at 75 degrees and was mud, mud, mud. The conditions where so bad I can’t describe them, I spent more time on my butt than I did on my feet. The count was Herekino 9 Tanya 0, but I am taking the win as I made it through. I had mud in places the light has never seen, and all that effort and no view of the surrounding area. The climb was 580m above sea level so we got some elevation however the forest was so thick there was no view.
Met some new people at Trampers Inn : Heinz from Germany and Cassidy, Peter, Jenni and Clea from the USA.
HIGHLIGHT: Warm bed at Trampers Inn
LOWLIGHT: The whole bloody day
Grateful: For my own inner resolve to be brave and to smash the tough stuff, but more grateful to David for reminding me of this when I was crying and exhausted. Grateful to the owners of Tramper Inn for the glorious toilet with an amazing view. Grateful for the entertainment of meeting different people with different views.
