North Island traverse

Between the 9th and 30th of December 2016 I took to the road alone. Traversing the high ways and the back ways over 17 days from Cape Reinga to Wellington. The blog describes the journey, my thoughts and tribulations (just hit the ‘North Island traverse’ tag).

Total distance: 1666918 m
Max elevation: 957 m
Min elevation: 1 m
Total climbing: 10365 m
