None of us can afford ...

    "North Bound" ?
  • Camping on the Kaweka tops

    The Black Birch Range might be a better option ?
  • rescue from five passes

    Sounds like the heli-pilot had a tough job, then, to pick up on Sunday in what sounds like an unpleasant clag. Good thing they had a PLB. Hopefully, we will hear ...
  • Lake Waikaremoana track closed

    The track is now partially open - great news! Last year I walked from Onepoto to Korokoro on day 1, it's a good climb up and down but quite easy ...

    Just back from a long winter working in the Canadian Arctic. While it was an exotic and interesting adventure, I missed my home a lot. NZ Tramper has really filled ...
  • Anatoki - Boulder Lake route

    .... and, yes, rest is the recommendation for shingles - he didn't get a lot of that !
  • Birthday trip

    Mount Arthur was my New Years trip but might be worth a geez and exploring a bit wider. I think the hot pool suggestion sounds the best option thus far.
  • Sudden Valley

  • Dulux hut.

    That was a hilarious thread on Permolat to read. So much conjecture and accusations of photoshopping.
  • Mt Richardson to Lees

    I did hear back from Sarah Ensor in DoC. She confirmed the Lees Valley address as being the replacement for the Grasslands one and asked me to try and ensure ...

  • Upper South Branch Hurunui Hut to Camerons Hut

    It looks as if they accidently went up the wrong stream, which made them climbed a few hundred m more than planned: https://get.google.com/albumarchive/100895717774510695568/album/AF1QipM1TqN1iCU47GEKWDx0E_kZJScZI8kpFh3qCGzW/AF1QipMQPNrVSLORyMu8ZXHMFvuurApK1uq2Dl0NqPVN They intended to try to get onto the the ...

    Thanks for that, Madpom. I've only been down to the Garry from the trig at Point 797. Another time a few of us went from Bob's biv down to the ...
