General Comments

The walk was harder than expected, due to backpack weight, almost entirely.  We’ve learned a lot about how to travel lighter (more expensive equipment mainly!)  E2E seems dominated by power walkers.

Food/Supplies Comments

Excellent food prepared by ourselves.

Favourite Section

Unable to choose, that variety was fabulous.

Highlights

Mount Cooke flowers and other vegetation, and the southern coastal section.

Personal Reactions

An unforgettable experience, in part due to illness which affected the second half of the walk.

Wildlife

Plenty of birds seen and many more heard.  Well-behaved snakes throughout the walk.

Your Best Equipment

Hennessy Hammock and crocs.

Your Worst Equipment

Heavy canvas backpack

Advice for Others

Walk Light!
