    Nah not camping. Decided last month to travel light and stay at hostels – taking no camping / cooking gear, just a couple of t-shirts and that\’s about it. It\’s pretty easy to get away with it in NZ

    I hear ya bro. If anything, getting sick has given me the courage to just go out and do the things I dream about – nobody else is going to do them for me, it’s not going to happen if I sit around waiting, and I’m not going to get the chance to do them later – so I better get them done now.

    Interesting thoughts mate. Out of interest, have you tried things like nuun (carb free electrolyte drink in tab form), or calcium magnesium tablet supplement to help with muscle / bone repair and reduce cramps.

    • Hi Leon,

      Thanks for the tip on Nuun. I had never heard of it. After doing a Google search I see that is widely available in the States. I’ll have to give it a try.
