Roadies - a term used to describe a support team that carried by road items not need between marae or campsites – were a critical part of the organisation and helped to keep morale high. They were the people who ensured tents were erected and waiting for the paddlers at the end of the day; they made sure barrels, dry bags etc were ready and waiting for people when they arrived at the new campsite. Some wharenui accommodation was available at each marae but some paddlers simply used their modern tents.
