hey there

I am thinking of doing the tongariro crossing on Monday the 4th Feb. i will be in taupo for the weekend before and have a car, my thoughts were to to drive to a campsite/backpackers close to where the hike begins and arranging drop off/pick ups from there. if anyone is up for it or has any advice let me know.

cheers, lucy
