After some resupply in Waipu, hitched to skip the road section considering Nobu’s leg. Stevan who gave us a lift used to do hitch a car all the time until quite recently. The tip was putting palms together! Then even a cop can give you a lift. We’ll try it next time.
We stayed at Dragonspell. Which was rehab place years ago. And now owner and residence are welcoming long walkers to stay with Koha(donation). Absolutely cool place and nice people.
Flying Fox, View Point Tower, Nice Lounge. Sometimes hikers stay more than weeks.
Thanks a lot Karly & Johnny!
