At approximately 2:27:53 we arrived safely at the campsite where luxurious bunkrooms filled with soft delicate matresses were divied out, except to 6 hardy young souls, brave men all, who decided to exist in a tent and to become one with nature. Respect.
At 3:06:12 (precisely) in the afternoon, we set off on the first trek of the camp, to Taranaki Falls. The experience of standing under said falls stung like gravel being thrown by 1000 toddlers. Some found inner peace on a boulder behind the waterfall. Others relished the freezing cold water.
The evening was filled with preparation for the following days events (plus mean food) as various individuals prepared themselves mentally, physically and spiritually to face the mighty Tongariro.
