We're finding it hard to get to stay in some huts these days anyway. We have to wait for deep rivers or deep snow sometimes to get a bunk in a hut. Pity the cold ...

I used to give a mate at work a hard time about how he was always going in to Black Hill Hut but then we started going there a lot too. That walk in along ...

when the actor took a big slide, it looked like he was holding onto something between his legs that you couldnt see, like something underneath him to slide better on... but its TV, take it with ...
Stepping back about 15 side-tracks. I notice that Redcliff Hut appeared on DOC's maps at some point during lockdown (so maybe DOC Te Anau follow tramper.nz!). I further notice that there was a Redcliff Hut ...

And partly due to huddling behaviour. The link cites that ""None of the temperatures in badly affected cities dipped below 0C (32F)during the height of the epidemic, which may suggest a lower threshold beyond ...

Looks like mainly wilding pine work. Which is good & worthwhile. But note that as pine control is funded through MPI as part of their biosecurity responsabilities - it's not necessarily a boost to DOC's ...
I like the idea of "route bagging" :smile: Personally I think that adding all the DOC tracks would clutter up the routeguides interface. Generally if I'm looking at routeguides it is either because there *isn't* an ...

Maybe a hammock would be the go? Have to say I could always find a place to put up a tent in in Fiordland although there was only one site that was actually dead level ...

Give them a big ladder so they can trek to the Sea Of Tranquility
Hello people. I have been away for a while and I would love to share with you my latest experience. I recently came back from Nepal where I spent one month. It was a great experience tramping around ...

> the stats are deceptive Yup, it should be weighted by how many people use the track a year. I last did the Tongariro Crossing with 2 buses full of kids. Other buses were in the carpark.

Tramper Joe I've only been up on Mt Alexander not Mt Howe but I understand the traverse you are asking about is doable. There is some steep and eroding stuff and you may well have ...
