It's been a stressful time for all of us. The packs are getting heavier as we start to include food, water, etc. Chris's red dress is ready to be packed and we are all having our last night with wifi. We got a NZ phone number for family & friends to contact us during the walk and we're all resting up before the first day. At the moment we have a laptop, camera, go pro, iPad, kindle and a couple of phones which we are just now realizing may have been too many electronics to have. We are taking a tour bus up to Cape Reinga where we will finally start the Te Araroa Trail and our most anticipated journey.
