Long walk down the Waiau Valley today

Long walk down the Waiau River Valley today

CookieFrom our camp just before Caroline Biv last night, it looks like 36 miles to Lewis Pass Road where we can hitch to Hanmer Springs and resupply. That’s 3 days at our normal target pace of 12 miles a day, problem is we only have 2 days worth of food left! We’ve been slower on this section than expected, I’ve known this for a while so have short-changed a few meals to make some emergency rations for the third day, but we’ve decided to aim to get there in two anyhow. That means doing at least 18 miles today, our highest milage yet, but it’s not a bad as in sounds, today should be easy flat valley walking.
