After 30 minutes Geoff came thundering past at a very fast pace. 10 minutes later the rest of the guys flew past. I walk at a faster than average pace through the bush but these guys made me feel like a granny with their impressive speed.
10 minutes later I was surprised to see the guys at the river but when I saw Geoff soaking wet I realised why. He had tried to cross the Tokamaru River using a log and slipped ending up fully immersed, pack and all. Luckily he didn't hurt anything except his pride. It was especially funny given the amount of river crossings throughout the day where there was no way to avoid getting wet feet.
