A good weekend was had by me, and the other guys seemed to enjoy themselves as well.

The ride from Hamilton to Murapara was light rain. I had sprayed my trousers with Nikwax rain proofing stuff about a month beforehand and was pleased that no water got through. From Murapara to Okahu Road was dry and it mostly stayed that way into the evening apart from the occasional small shower.

Okahu Road wasn’t signposted so I only spotted it due to the DOC sign which was a fair way off the main road.

We all got set up, @markh had his hammock again which looks very comfortable but takes ages and requires 3 arms to put up.

The dual purpose KLR found a new purpose as a buffet table for snacks
