10 March, rain misty
We were up and off to the supermarket to get snacks for the day. Marina dropped us back to her place to pick up our packs.
Bex and Max walked on to their trail angels home and I stopped at the Tuatara Backpackers.
Later on four Waiarapa trampers appeared in the dorm. All mid 70 and had just completed a gruelling two night three day tramp.
They invited me to join them and we had a hilarious time over dinner. They had tramped every year together for over 40 years. They told some good yarns about the usual possum in the hut and others that come from shared adventures in huts and on tracks.
All five of us headed to our bunks and me to organise my pack and storage for final day to Bluff tomorrow.
