    Day 733 – Do One Thing Every Day That Scares You

    Te Anau -> Milford Sound (wild camp)
    Distance (km) : 123
    Time on bike : 7h 40m
    Brutto time: 08.35 – 19.00

    Max.speed: 74.8 !
    Total (km) : 29.085

    Some people say you oughtta do one thing every day that scares you. Deciding to leave Lake Gunn and head up the mountains – a vertical climb of 600m followed by a 900m drop – and into Milford Sound at 4.30 pm, after 80 km and 5½ hours on the bike already, with the sun setting and the temperature dropping quickly, well, that was my scare of the day.
