I took off from Hamilton at about 1:30pm in light rain and passing Cambridge I got absolutely dumped on, however just a few km further along the road and the sun came out and stayed that way for the rest of the trip to Waiouru.

Stopped in Taupo for a few minutes to get some cash.

and I stopped again in Taihape at Burger King and this little fella tried to steal my lunch. I’ve not seen one like this before.

Arrived at the new Cold Kiwi site and set up next to @markh.

The mountain was looking great

The evening dew had frozen on the bikes seat by 8pm and was still there at 8am Saturday morning

Looking down towards the bar and food caravans
