    I went back to Doughboy and found where the track starts. It is in the logical place really. It starts at the foot of that WNW spur that runs off ...

    I've met a guy in NW Nelson, surname Young?, who told me he's been all through that country in winter and climbed nearly every peak in Kahurangi and Nelson Lakes. ...

  • Kaimais: Sentinel Rock track to Motutapere hut

    Yeah I found that: http://trampaddicts.weebly.com/te-rereatukahia-stream-tributary-loop.html So I know the stream is doable, but it's not the right season to do stream bashing for me, it's getting too cold ;) I'll be going ...
  • Camping on the Kaweka tops

    @gaiters is spot on. I avoid the Kawekas during the roar, way too many idiots with guns around. Having said that, if you head north towards Kaweka North there's a ...
  • old Wangamomona Road

    This has just come from the NZ4WD association. There is more information at http://www.stratford.govt.nz/images/Agendas/Annual-Plan-2017-18---Website-DRAFT.pdf and http://www.stratford.govt.nz/images/District_Plan/Stratford-2035-Future-of-Whangamomona.pdf It affects trampers and mountain bikers as much as 4wders. None of us can afford ...

  • 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 ...

    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

    @Clint: cheers, and just to reassure you, it wouldn't take 4 hours in the dark but there might be some dark for the last hour or so if you leave ...
  • Looking for a less-beaten path

    Let's not dis rail this person thread
  • Dulux hut.

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

    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 ...
