Heaphy track

Heaphy Track and onwards

Roger called me a couple of weeks ago with a great plan – walk the Heaphy track then jump on road bikes and cycle down the west coast – over the Haast Pass and onwards to Queenstown. All part of Rogers big plan to ease back from the nearly full time work as a chemist. Roger just wants to have fun — and we are here to support him in his endeavor .

the team that have agreed to accompany roger is myself , Ali Robinson, Graham from Whatatane and Rod ( with the sore ankle) From Rotorua who has agreed to be our driver – accommodation coordinator – cook – laundryman and general tail end Charlie . We plan to start the Heaphy track on Friday 5th April – a 4 day walk then ” on ya bike” thru the wild west coast. Adventure beckons . Ali and Rob are not doing the walk – Ali is going to kayak for a while – buggered knees from too much of the ugly game in his youth – Rob is the ordnance coordinator responsible “for driving and such other duties as may be prescribed from time to time” or the BITCH for short.
