Good to see you back on NWHikers!  Your reports were always enjoyable.  I'm curious to see what you're up to in NZ.

Sounds like a wonderful adventure!  I hiked a tiny portion of it last year when I was on the South Island.  Are you familiar with Walking with Wired? (www.walkingwithwired.com)  She wrote about her experience on the Te Araroa a few years ago.  Plus some long trails in Australia and Tasmania.
Lots of good intel in her posts.  Plus highly entertaining, as I am sure yours will be as well!   up.gif

I remember reading stories of a group getting zapped (to death I think) in those caves during a lightning storm

I think that Half Dome cave story might be told in Bob Madgic's book Shattered Air

Looking forward to tales from Te Araroa.   up.gif
