Looks like you had a good ride, that 252km’s, how many litres was that?

Love the pics, looks like a fun weekend, though never ever go to bed with damp socks as you discovered, and putting your other warm gear under the sleeping bag usually has more effect than putting it over top. One of those silver foil rescue blankets can make a huge difference.

I can’t do the kiwi at the new site, getting from the tents down the hill to the bar/toilets and back is too much for me so unless they change sites again to something flatter that’s it.
