Feet stop, mind races: help please!
Today is Day 16 not-walking. Well, I’m not bed-ridden but wearing a moonboot kills any chance of hiking 30km today. Or tomorrow. Dr Mel is quietly happy with my progress. She gave me some big words to describe my shin: … Continue reading

Intense rest is pretty intense
For a week I’ve been sporting this stylish ‘moonboot’ to restrict the flex in my right ankle and help me with “intense rest”. Doctor Mel at SportsMed, though impressed at how fast the severe swelling has gone down, has ordered … Continue reading

I’m still alive!

Mangatawhiri to Rangiriri
Maybe it’s the consecutive days of walking that are taking a toll, but these days were particularly taxing. It took half a day to walk Mangatawhiri to Mercer, where I sat and finished off the pita bread, cheese, salami and … Continue reading

Decision time: Plan C kicks in
Plan A for this adventure was to start at Cape Reinga and walk to Bluff, following Te Araroa pretty much in order. With a couple of physical hiccups (swollen shin and infected mega-blister) Plan B was to sit and wait … Continue reading

Warts and all (well, blisters anyway)
