I'm on Maui now with my Surly Long Haul Trucker, panniers, four season hammock, and other gear. I'm allowing myself two months at a leisurely pace to rice vertically across New Zealand, most likely beginning in early February. I'm also a member of WWOOF New Zealand and Couchsurfing. My heart and mind is open, and I'm looking forward to the adventure that awaits.
I've done centuries, and am pretty good with hills, so the physical task won't be too arduous. Any suggestions, recommendations, or sights to see? The weather should be sublime.
Anyone interested to join for part or whole feel free to contact. I'm pretty fun, and make the best out of all situations. Check out my blog if interested http://www.atomfarm.blogspot.com
