NZ DAY 30
MANGATAWHIRI RIVER TRACK: Auckland to Mercer 0KM we cheated again and caught the bus
Today was another zero day due to us skipping the road walking and ended up at Mercer. The trail notes indicted that the local pub offered free camping to TA walkers in the beer garden so here we are. David is in heaven camping at a pub. I have spent the day trying to up load my daily blog so I can send out the newsletter but Macca’s internet is just not playing ball. The pubs specialty is homemade pizza so that dinner taken care of.
HIGHLIGHT: The bus driver taking us all the way to Mercer( not one of his usual stops)
LOWLIGHT: Not being able to send out the news letter
Today I am grateful we have reassessed our situation and have come up with a plan that will keep us healthy , by skipping some of the road walking. I am also grateful to Sandra and Podges place for the free camping. I know I have said this before but I am truly grateful for David he has been my absolute rock.
