We made big progress in the Nihotupu block and we are not far away from finishing re aligning the stations with the Ark's bait station network. Thank you to all of you who braved the thick cutty grass, kiekie and supple jack nets! It is a good opportunity to practice our bush skills, including the use of radios and compass reading, as one group was mislead and went north instead of south and another group untaped their own track ... Luckily it all ended well!
