Hey peeps, I’m in Etna now, 230 miles from Old Station in less than 9 days. Understandably knackered but feeling a whole heap better than in Castella. Have met up with BlueSky and will sort a plan for then next few weeks. Thanks for the videos, looking forward to seeing ya’ll soon :-)

And the mountain roared!

The Mount Ruapehu lahar went off today and apparently everything went to plan, road closures, track closures all that guff. I wasn’t there to see it but the Herald has some photos. I crossed that river a month ago while doing the Round The Mountain, I might try to get back there and see when the landscape is like now.
