For those that like statistics, I'm hoping to take around 145 days, of which 129 (sounds precise aye?!) will be actually spent on the trail. This is 3,008km long (2015 official route!), so I think it should take me around 4.6 million steps...This also happens to work out at around one step for each New Zealander! I'm thinking of taking a pedometer and maybe should run a sweepstake to the closest estimate??!!
For those that just like the highlights, here's the simplest version:
For those that want a bit more detail, click here for a pdf version that shows where I currently aim to be each day.
For those that really want to walk (but can only do so vicariously) and have access to Google Earth, my planned stages can be viewed here....And finally, when I get around to it, I'll try and get around to posting a gpx file with all my planned stops...and the unplanned backup ones, before I leave!
