  Tanya's blistered feet!
by kiwigal_1

I can't stress this point enough... it is really important to make sure you bring a first aid kit with you if you are attempting to do any hiking/tramping in Tongariro. We used our kit a couple of times... once for Tanya who unfortunately got a couple of nasty blisters on her feet and once for me for a nagging headache I had that wouldn't go away. To try and prevent blisters make sure that you are wearing wool socks, that your boots are comfortable and that you have worn them in. I think my headache could have been altitude and cold related but a couple of Nurofen worked wonders.
