Designers are cool… and intrepid
Firstly, it’s really exciting and encouraging to receive emails from randoms offering their support and advice. Thank you.
I got an email from Simon Cook, “Cookie”, the other day. He’s a Pommy designer / illustrator who did the Continental Divide Trail (CDT) a few years ago and created a documentary of the trip and did an awesome job putting together a comprehensive and rather nifty looking map of the track. He, and his girlfriend Nicky, will be setting off on the Te Araroa roughly the same time as me.
Hope to bump into Cookie and Nicky and can’t wait to see their doco of the trip and the lush maps.
