On Thursday 22 March, I finally completed my traverse of the South Island. To be honest, it was a bit of an anticlimax, but after just over a month to look back on it, it is just starting to sink in what I've managed to pull off.
I've been busy since I got back, but am endeavouring toupdate this blog when I can, so you will eventually get the complete story, so please keep checking it, it will be finished some time in the not too distant future!
I have just updated the Mount Cook to Makarora section, and am about half way through the Makarora to Glenorchy bit. When i finally go through all my photos, I'll try and put up some of the better ones too.
