Left work after 3.00 p.m. and picked up Carl on the way to Otaki for a visit to my Mum and Dad before heading to Poads road.
We eventually headed off from Poads road at about seven pm. Intended to go up South Ohau but when we got there is was a bit dirty and up a bit. So off up Gables and a slow trip to Te Matawai, can see that this area needs a good dose of 1080 as our fury friends are out and about tonight.

A rather late start to the day. And the weather is no way at all like the weather forecast. Sun is not even visible. Decided to check who had the heaviest pack, a bit of a draw.

A not so late start to the day, hut sweep and wander off down to South Ohau hut. A re-cut of an old track has been done, which we only checked out the start of. Here is the info from the hut book.
