Te Araroa

Soon after quitting my job in the USA, I moved to NZ and hiked the Te Araroa in Bedrock Sandals. Te Araroa is New Zealand's long distance hiking route, stretching 3000km along the length of the country's two main islands from Cape Reinga in the North to Bluff in the South. This took me 87 days 21 hours 28 min and 56 seconds to complete. He was the runner-up for the Wilderness Outdoor Hero of the Year for this feat.
