Oceania Day 2. The first of the 2hr+ epics. Really enjoyed the pine forest and felt like I had the hang of it (although comparing routes with Fraser afterwards suggests that I was too soft in always going to the tracks). Lost it a bit in the low vis forest - went out to the beach on the first control which meant I lost track of where I was and lost a lot of time - although from a tourist perspective it was cool to see an NZ beach full of cars/4 wheelers. Overran 16 and struggled a bit getting through the sand dune grass, although I was glad there are no snakes in NZ. The end of the course was a slog and I managed to penetrate some impenetrable green on the way to 25.
