So after a false start in the forest the other day, hampered by loggers, and a rest up in Levin from some dodgy fish and chips we resolutely set out again towards the big mountain range that stood between us and our final destination on the North Island, Wellington! Well those mountains turned out to be a bit further away in the distance than we’d imagined ;) And so sapped by the hot sun we spotted a reserve by the river as a possible camping spot, and decided to chill by the stream, act casual, and wait till the dog walkers and horse riders had slipped off home before we made our stealth camp…
We got a late start from Levin, hanging out in McDonalds for power and wifi longer than expected to get the blog updated. It was after lunch by the time we headed out for the hills, so we knew we weren’t going to get very far today. Nestled alongside the Ohua River and only about 6 miles out of town, Gladstone Reserve seemed like a good place to spend the night. There was a constant stream of people coming to enjoy it’s deep swimming holes, even a couple of horses came for a dip!
