reveries of an amateur long-distance hiker

Day 101

Dec 10 day 101 Wanaka 0 km



Ahh, a zero day (by choice). Wanaka is an amazing little town, lives up to all the good things I have heard on the trail. I hadn’t realized how tired I was until I stopped walking a bit. Feels good not to be moving very much (though I did walk a bit to break in my new shoes). One thing you have to love about tramper culture is living within forms of mobility and in the big outside. Sitting in a coffee shop this morning, I watched a man across the street beside his car drop his pants, flash all the cars going with some briefs crack, then he put on his hiking shorts. There is no real place for modesty in hiking towns. All in all, a day well spent.
