My name is Gold. I'm from Christchurch, New Zealand but currently live in Wellington. I'm planning on travelling a bit and everything I own currently fits on my back. I'm a web developer with a particular focus on Drupal. Despite losing an old school friend after the Feb 22nd quakes in Christchurch I still consider the place home and want to do something to help. I'm at a point in my life where it's the right time to do that.
Sponsored walk of Te Araroaride of NZ
When I tell people that I'm planning on doing Te Araroa they find it interesting. Then they find out what Te Araroa is, just how long it is and how long it'll take and the questions really start to flow. So, the short version... Te Araroa is a 3000km trail that runs from Cape Reinga to Bluff. To make it a little less place name related the trail runs from as far north as you can go (without having to swim) to as far south as you can go (without having to swim). I'm planning on starting this around the New Year and will be starting down south and fleeing the cold weather. I'm hoping to raise funds for a few charities along the way.
Update: Damage to a foot has me on a bike now. The trip will finish this year, but finishing the Te Araroa will, unfortunately, have to wait.
