I’m actually doing this!
By committing fingers to the key pad and creating this blog I’m committing myself to the task and putting it out there for the world to witness. This is my statement of intent. This is me saying “This is happening!” I will start walking the Te Araroa Trail in Nov 2015. Less than 10 months away.
I’ve told work and the boss that I’m going to take a summer off work (unheard of for a forest fire fighter in SE Australia) and have his blessing.
So this blog is really all about keeping track of and sharing my progress towards tramping the TA and updating everyone along the way. Hope you enjoy it. It’s a work in progress for the next 6 months but will ramp up closer towards Nov and through to March 2016.
