My travel power adapter has surge protection built into it thanks to a small cylindrical fuse. The fuse blew yesterday (in unspectacular fashion). This left me without a source of power for my happy laptop, which was nearly out of battery power as it was. So updates will have to wait for a couple of days, because while I have found and replaced said fuse (after nearly a day of looking in the sleepy town I’m in), I now need sleep. Lots of updating to come, including camping near Auckland, my first overnight hike…and jumping off waterfalls. Updates in a few days.
