There and back again... a future kiwi's tale
Haven't had a lot of time to post or even access to the net. This will have to be fast. http://www.waitomo.co.nz/lostworldepic.html is the location of the tour we took it was abseiling and caving with a rambo rating of 10/10 Yesterday was the hardest day of my life, physically and mentally it pushed me to the breaking point. I am WAY too short to be making those jumps between rocks while swift rapids flow. The guides had to pull my sorry weak ass out of by my butt straps more than once. I used EVERY muscle in my body yesterday. The picture is me crawling under a huge bolder to get to the next waterfall I had to crawl unders. See the Waitomo Photo album for more pictures. It was exhiliarating and exhausting and I thought it would never ever ever end. Despite the cookies and warm lemon drink I remember thinking " I don't think I can do this" but I kept up in what Phil and the guides say was a struggle even for them. So I guess I've passed a sort of test of my limits once again. Sore, but feeling like I've accomplished something few ever will.
