  • Pancakes on Powell Hut on Sunday morning!

    (This would be the trip I'd love to run for this weekend... but I decided to stay in Wellington, after several weekends of tramping) Loosely following Anita's instructions for planning a trip, I wrote up what is required: We need you! and a car, driver and some more participants! This is a medium overnight trip to the eastern Tararuas, ...

  • Re: Kapakapanui Loop on Sunday

    On Sunday I started tramping the Kapakapanui Loop in warm sunshine at 11AM, after brisk warm-up bike ride from Waikane Station... No wet feet after the river crossings! Thanks to alpine tramping boots and gaiters. I feared wet and cold feet on this tramp – that's what Kapakapanui is famous for! From the bottom, I could see the ...

  • Summit Plateau camping this weekend anyone?

    Hey all, so I know there's been a few trips to Tongariro region lately but this one will be different - a) because it is looking like beautiful weather this weekend, and b) because there will actually be decent amounts of snow! So, I was thinking it was about time to go camping on the summit plateau of Ruapehu again - a nice wee spot if you ...
