Oceania Carnival day 1. Finished 5th in the M55A class. Lovely open/fast pine forest on not too complex sand dune terrain. Very flat in most places with just small knolls and depressions. Only complex bit was where the visibility was low but I just read the larger contours and had no problems. Made a bit of a mess of 2 by not following a good direction out of the control and ran off at a 45 degree angle and then started making a parallel error. When things didn't line up I relocated quickly but still lost over a minute. A couple of poor route choices where I should have run straight rather than out to the track-along-back in. Only other poor control was 14 where I ran past the control but just didn't see the knoll which was about 1 metre high, and got sucked into some larger knolls further on, so lost 2 minutes. GL was first in 40, then Paul in 44 and Ted in 45. A clean run would have had me at about 48 so would have had to run a lot harder to challenge. Good first hit out in the NZ terrain.

From our campsite at Scoutlands just south of Wanganui. Out along the road around the lake and then followed a dead-end road to the end past some nice houses and back. Very quiet - only saw one car the entire time.

Waitomo Caves. Along the walking track from our campsite to the Two Dogs cave parking area. This followed the river and went through forest and farmland and was very pleasant. Met MaryMac and we ran around the Short Walk through rainforest, past the caves, up and down numerous stairs, across high platforms, and even a couple of short dark tunnels.

Went back and walked it after our run.

Pizza and beer for tea.

Early ride with MaryMac from home through McKellar and then a lap of Lake Ginninderra then back along the creek. Perfect morning and only a few people out and about.

Christmas 5-days at Beechworth Gorge. A slight stuff-up with the course lengths meant it was about half as far again as intended. That plus the course setters joy in setting legs down the hill to only come straight back up meant it was a bit of a struggle, especially the last little loop after the run-through. From the start I just decided to take it easy and enjoy myself rather than bust a pooper valve. In the end I quite enjoyed most of it, just a bit of the terrain towards the end was crappy.
