Pureora Forest Headquarters - Taumaranui
" Pureora Forest Timber Trail. This trail is a winner. It’s fantastic.
"Trail mates say allow 4 or 5 days to head through to Taumaranui, and it’s just a glorious kind of trek proper - Formed, fine gravel walkways and also some forest floor.
"I’m doing another bit of my jigsaw puzzle.
"That’s nice ‘cos it’ll give me a chance to have a rest day having started again after my break ….Whew! - the body’s definitely getting hammered being back on this here Trail.
"The woman at the iSite (in Taumaranui), she said that I am the most organised person she has seen. Ha ha! Sheesh, if I’m organised … man, those other buggers … how’d they do it?"
