I fly a week tomorrow and now at last I feel like I have got everything sorted. There were a few changes to equipment principally a new cooking stove and GPS. The GPS has caused me the biggest headache. I am far from technical and although some lovely people from the Te Araroa facebook page gave me their files with POI (Point of Interests) and Tracks that they had created I was struggling to down load them onto my GPS. After lots of attempts and some help they are finally on which gives me great peace of mind.
