I thought I’d look up some info on Te Araroa for him (he’s planning to do the whole thing). I had no idea that the plan is that by 2010, the trail is supposed to be completed. This site had several diaries which might help since Jacob was looking for info on towns to refuel in and such.
I’ve been running (ok, so it’s a slow jog 🙂 ) several times a week and was hoping to continue it on the trip. I found a website with running trails all around Auckland. Good place to start!
