Another #basecampbuff this time from Mount Somers track New Zealand. With a message from our @sukiesouthern: Here’s one of us on The Mount Somers track. The term track is used VERY loosely!! A challenging 8 1/2 hours on Day One, 6 hours on Day Two with family. Overnight in the Wool Shed Hut. We had all the seasons on day one. You had to concentrate on every step. On all fours at times, walking up and down rocky alpine streams, crossing raging torrents, can’t remember any flat parts! Sam did the add-on up to the actual summit. Very poor visibility at that time. A volunteer died on Mount Somers last year. We are all beginning to walk normally again. Had a heavy pack on day one. However my legs did an amazing job and recovered the quickest (including the younger generation’s). Go @joesbasecamp !! #liftheavyrunfarclimbhigh #joesbasecamp #trekfit #tramping #hiking #Bushwalking #hutlife #upanddown #newzealand #gettingamongstit #mountains #nature #alltheelemeents #leg#legsgth #rucking #packmarch #adventure #legs

Day 74-75 22km - 27km Waikanae - Porirua It was a beautiful walk down the coast, I’m not a fan of beach walking however a couple guys fishing gave me a beer which made the walk much better!

Day 73 - Kime Hut to Waikanae, 35km Instead of walking 8hrs past alpha Hut through thick fog over another 8 peaks with bad weather rolling in I decided to take the 4hrs down the mountain and back onto the TA, then walked another 7hrs into Waikanea, Fun Day! 🏔 - #teararoa #teararoa1819 #travel #nomad #nomadic #tramping #adv#adventure #instatravel #travellife #livingthedream #nature #outdoors #beautiful #getoutdoors #wil#wilderness #explore #adventure #livetoexplore #relax #wild #backpacking #workingholiday #newzealand #kiwi #livinginthemoment #hiking #hikingadventures #mountains #legday #expedition
