Ahh, damn. Just got to a working computer and they disabled access to the USB drive, so I can’t upload the journal for the last two days or any of the pictures. Will try to do it again in a day or so.
Just a quick update. The bag was miraculously retrieved on the 2nd day, so we didn’t even lose any time because of it. Aside from having to stay in the same set of clothes for 4 days, there were no other casualties.
We already left Wellington (North Island) and just made our way to the Picton (South Island) and will be doing about 320km in the next 3 days or so.
Will post more soon! Damn this computer.
