15hrs stormy rain trapped in the tent which is holding well! NZ has all kind of pleasures to offer… but could be worse. Hope to get going again tomorrow!
I had to move my tent before dawn_fully naked,in pouring rain and sandstorm…not to get anything more wet than necessary…no pictures 🙂
it’s still pouring and blowing. slight bit less stormy. But nothing inviting yet 🙁 in a rain lull I might go…or not. Everything is damp 🙁
