    Good luck with more $$

    More to the point, how did you get on heading up the Waipakahi?

    The trip was a bit of a failure unfortunatly.
    A combination of over estimating our abilities, under estimating the country and lack of 'hiking' conditioning with heavy packs.
    We only got about 2/5s the way and we we're stuffed and badly running out of water, we took heaps but in the weather we've been having it clearly wasn't enough.
    'Gutted' doesn't quite emphasise how i was feeling having to turn back but as a mate said 'The hut ain't going anywhere soon!'
    I've done similar length trips with similar weighted packs into the Waihaha and through Poronui to Jap creek via the Oamaru but i hadn't taken into account the elevation difference with the Umukarikari and that ultimately was our down fall.

    It never looks that bad when you're looking at it on a map in a airconditioned office....funny that!

    Good on you for your honesty and recognising your limits - not everyone can do that.
