TA Day 30, Rangiriri to below Hakamarita summit – 29 km

A massive Kauri in the Hakarimata Reserve that somehow missed the ax of overzealous lumberjacks.

It rained all night.

Maybe it got it out of its system.

I slept well behind Cathy’s Pie Shop even though we shared nearly an entire bottle of chardonnay. She’s a well off Kiwi who lost most of her wealth, but has found her own ‘trail’ after leaving a cheating husband and buying up property to rent.

She loves us trail walkers looking for answers as we walk day after day. She instilled confidence in me that whatever it is I’m seeking would work out and that – like Dorothy – the answers are probably already inside me.

Of course that remains to be seen.
