Favorites and Not so much
It has been a long incredible journey, and I'm remembering my favorites and not so much.
Favorite campsite- Ridge in the two thumbs range looking out at Mt. Cook,
worst campsite- a tie between Diggers Valley Road (in the first week) and the quarry site from a couple of days ago
Favorite Section- The Tararus on the North Island, the Richmand Range on the South Island
Worst Section- The road walking from Wanganui to Palmerston North, North Island
Saddest thing I saw- 26 Dead Penguins on the beach :(
Happiest Moment on the trail- seeing Leslie pull up at Arthur's Pass
Hardest Section- the Mackeral Forest, North Island
Tallest Point- 2000 meters, lowest, ahh see level
Biggest Day- 44 Km on the North Island, 43 on the South
Smallest Day- 12 Km on the South (which I might add took all day)
Favorite NZ saying- "keen on you"
Most unforgettable moment- the scream Buck 30 let out when he put his trekking pole through his tent
Favorite Hut- Stodys and Anne Hut
Best town meal- my Denver omelet in Lake Hawea
Worst town meal- my half cooked sausage corndog on a stick (I thought I ordered an American Hotdog)
My most said quote- "I need to dry my tent"
Best purchase- earplugs for 10 dollars
Worst purchase- a pizza that had anchovies on it :(
The last night on the trail, I crawled into my sleeping bag and thought, "I did it, I survived another day on the TeAraroa, I'm one day away from Bluff!"
