Tramping partner Auckland
Kia ora koutou, My name is Danielle and I am seeking a like-minded tramping partner. Ideally, I'd like to meet someone who is open-minded, kind, and in my age bracket (30s). I'm keen to connect with someone who walks at a compatible pace to me (generally faster than DOC estimates) and is a similar skill level. I have done a fair bit of solo tramping in both the North and South islands, as well as Arizona, and have a basic knowledge of navigation, survival/first aid skills, snow and off track travel, etc. I'm looking to improve on these and would love to meet someone at a similar stage or slightly more advanced. My last solo overnight trip (Feb 2021) was a seven day journey up the Travers Valley to Blue Lake then down the Sabine and out (Nelson Lakes) and since then I've done a few day tramps in the Waitakeres, Coromandel and Wellington region. I'm looking to do a mixture of day trips and overnighters at the moment, and perhaps a longer trip over summer. I (unfortunately) live in Auckland and like to get out of town, especially to where there are some decent sized mountains. I'm also open to some longer day tramps in the Auckland region though. I and am pretty busy with the final year of my PhD, however tramping keeps me sane. I am my best self when out in the mountains, and I'd like to share that with someone. Please get in touch if that sounds like you.
