The “Total Time” is my time in Aug. which includes morning tea time and lunch time. That day was fine and the tracks were good. We spent quite much time looking for a route to the coast and then further to Little Huia by coast line but was failed. If you slow down to average 3 km/h plus 60 min stop then the total time will be around 4:45 hrs.
