This is where we saw teamwork at is best with a chain gang passing barrels, drybags, kitchenware, food and everything else we needed for two days, up the hill – probably about 300 feet above the river. Whitianga marae, hosted by Nicolai, was a great stop over. Who would have thought we could have had a hangi - with fresh pork - for over 100 people in this wilderness. The skills appreciated here were obviously those related to basic survival rather than politics, finance or whatever was making the rest of the world go round.
