3 Nights to go  29 September 2019

Posted by: John Mcglashan College

Hi Everyone. Thanks very much for your kind donations. There are only three nights left to go before Archie, Bailey and me, Nicholas, set off from Bluff to Stewart Island. We are all sorted and ready to take on what Stewart island throws at us. Due to a break in the weather forecast for Thursday, and a lot of conversation about how confident we feel about the bush navigation, we have decided to start from Diprose Bay which is closer to the Tin Range, and will require little and simple bush navigation. After this, we will be following routes and tracks. Be sure to follow our facebook page, this is where we will post the updates for our trip. Thanks very much for your donations it makes us even more excited to undertake this challenge.
