  • Tubing this Weekend!

    Hey all, there is another tubing trip planned for this weekend and the weather is looking great so far! Also options for an easy overnight tramp. This one will be a bit keener than the Hutt gorge daytrip we did in December, and will actually require some walking and an overnight stop in a hut, - so proper dry bags ideal to keep your kit dry. Also ...

  • Tubing the Hutt Gorge, Saturday 10 December

    Hey all, its about that time of year again when I do my annual tubing trip - who is keen? Actually might do two this year - a trial trip down the hutt gorge next Saturday (10 Dec), and another attempt at the Otaki from Waitewaewae in January (maybe even the Waiohine to Totara Flats if get really keen). If you haven''t come across tubing before, ...

  • Otaki River Tubing trip

    Hey everyone, The calendar has a tubing trip down for this weekend, on the Otaki river. My plan if the weather is good is to do the whole stretch from Waitewaewae down to the forks - this involves a 4-5 hour walk in, overnight at the hut and a longish float out (8-10 hours?), so wetsuit definitely required! Its a pretty unique opportunity to ...

  • Tubing the Hutt Gorge!

    Hey everyone, for those not going up to Tongariro this weekend there will also be a tubing trip down the Hutt gorge running either Saturday or Sunday (weather depenedent, looks like Sunday better at the moment). If you're not familiar with tubing, this is where we jump in some inflatable truck tyre inner tubes and chuck ourselves down a river ...

  • Re: Gourmet tramping, hot pools and tubing!

    Just to emphasise, the tubing aspect of the trip (down the Mohaka River) is purely voluntary, possibly slightly crazy and definitely weather dependent - it should be fun though, so if you can get hold of the gear...

  • Gourmet tramping, hot pools and tubing!

    Hey guys, this weekend's club trip is the Gourmet tramp to the Kawekas - although Hawke's Bay may seem a long way to go, the combination of hot pools (at both ends of the track), an easy 2-3 hour walk in beside the river and the aforesaid river to tube down the next day make this very worthwhile! Gourmet is all about throwing out your usual ...

  • Re: Tubing on saturday!

    Hey,   I'm very keen!!! :) Sorry I couldn't e-mail reply this because hotmail isn't working... You have my wetsuit (that bag acidently got left at your place). Might be able to get a tube, though I'm kinda doubting it, so I may have to borrow a gear shed one. Thanks!  Terra

  • Tubing on saturday!

    Hey guys, if anyone is keen for this tubing trip this weekend, please let me know (several people have but I can't remember who). It should be ok for beginners, actually am thinking about doing the Otaki Gorge down from the forks so if you did the upper section with us before it could be seen as unfinished business! The good thing about it ...
