Te Matawai

Queens Birthday weekend tramp in the Tararua's on my own, weather not too good. Just want to go some where walking in the rain, getting wet and have a fire sipping whisky and reading some books.

Got to Poads Road end at and headed off to South Ohau just before 10pm. What a cold trip, the walk up the river was numbing cold and I did not get to South Ohau hut until after one on Saturday morning.  I did not know if I had any feet. Had to get a fire going and warm up, so hit the sack eventually sometime after three in the morning.

Did not wake up until mid day and had a slow lunch and finally left South Ohau after three and headed off up to Te Matawai. Dumped my gear and went for a quick walk up to Pukematawai while there where views.

The best day so far and Im walking out down South Ohau. A bit of a view as I left Te Matawai. Walked with this other guy who had a shooter and was wearing a hat. There where three of us solo wanderers in the hut last night.
