Down the Waiohine to Totora flats hut. Only one boat for the majority of it which was a bit sad as the river was quite nice for pack rafting. Lots of swimming and ferrying with one boat (repair job lasted about an hour, should have done a better job last night but were all too buggered, would be a disaster in GZ not to be able to fix boat)
First bit of Tumeke starting at 11pm Thursday night from Waikawa camp near Otaki. Ridge top bush travel mostly and a difficult navigation descent down to Island Forks biv, out river to Waitawaewae hut.
Paddling (other) (Pack raft) 4:00:00 
Down the Otaki river to Whatiuru river.
Pretty solid section of river which resulted in a lot of portaging. Not enough water to paddle a lot of it but more water would most likely only made for more difficult portaging! No other teams paddled this river which was probably a good thing. I was a bit nervous to begin with but Stu is the man and I was feeling much more comfortable by the end. Had developed a good system of communication and I was able to help manoeuvre the boat more.
Ash and Brent ruined the kneeling pillow on Big Yellow when they got wrapped around rock and put a hole in the tube about 100m from the end.
Over the tops up Pakihore ridge and down to Mod Waiohine hut. Big day.
