reveries of an amateur long-distance hiker

Day 46

October 16th, 2015

Oct 16 day 46 National Park 0 km.


Another zero at National Park, waiting for Cory to get his stuff organized. We should be on the river tomorrow. To get all that square, we have to skip the hike into Whakaporo Landing, which was mostly just a long road walk anyway. A little disappointed to be missing a part of the trail, but river/canoe logistics are complicated and this seems the best solution. It also gave me another day to wander from coffee to coffee trying to get some more writing done. I’m sure I needed the rest, but I am anxious to get back to hiking. Reminds me of Paula Constant’s books where she keeps getting anxious when she is not walking, thinking she will lose momentum. It does feel as though I need to get back in my tent far away from wifi and restaurants, which is all I feel like I’ve been doing the last few days.
