They made another really early start and really enjoyed the ride. On forestry roads at times and there was a walk of about an hour and a half up some really steep terrain. They arrived in Nelson full of beans at about 3pm. I made a connection with a Gordon who offered accommodation in Nelson on the TA Facebook site. After connecting the dots it turns out it is Gordon who I travelled across Asia with in 1988 (Kathmandu London Trip) Amazing small world. He did TA in 2016. Geoff had a great talk with him, however the boys decoded to carry on to Richmond for the night. Here are some shots Geoff’s sent through of the Maungatapu saddle.
