Distance travelled today: 0 km
I’m aiming to finish at Bluff on the 13th or 14th. Jacinta is headed over for the Victorian Labour Day weekend and I’m pressing to make it to the end before she flys back home. That will mean some fairly big days of walking to get there in time but that is fine and I’m up for the challenge.
I’m ready to complete Te Araroa now and move onto to another project. I think I’ve seen the best of what Te Araroa offers and am just keen to see this journey through to the end.
To keep me honest and press the deadline I’ve booked a return flight home.
I paid a visit to the barber this morning. My 4 month old beard was absolutely out of control and needed a bit of loving.
Other than that, today I got resupplied for the next few days; booked accommodation ahead for Te Anau and my return to Queenstown before flying home; and emailed work to confirm my return date and to start sorting some restructure stuff out.
It certainly feels like the wind up to this journey now. I’m looking forward to finishing and completing the goal I set out to achieve.
