Rehydrating in the rain

Good news! A weather clearance is coming for Thursday and Friday this week. Bad news, I need to leave by Saturday. At least we are finding opportunities to keep re-hydrated today.

We spent an interesting couple of hours visiting the DOC exhibit’s on climbing in the Aoraki National Park and Sir Edmund Hillary’s various feats around the world. I am now faced with a tough decision of whether to make a cup of tea or go to sleep. I hope you are enjoying your Sunday afternoon,

Fortunately we have been able to keep adequately hydrated.

  1. Hi Axe, It,s been pretty much the same here rain and rain. Long journey to get to where you are but it all sounds exciting and worth doing. The Summit on the Grand Traverse still looks scary to me! Rather you than me! Have fun, take care and happy new year to you both. Mica,
