Every tramp is Awesome

Here’s to all the crazy tramps I’ve met along the way. Each of them is ludicrous and looney in their own ways and it’s always been fun to discover another fellow tramp using the vital signs – a distinct pong,… Continue Reading →

The endless supply of kiwi hospitality

Where to begin, there are tons of people, trail angels in other words, who have make this journey more memorable. I am going to recall the list from memory, in order of appearance: The folks with koha cabins along 90… Continue Reading →

Day 132: Done & dusted. Fuck yeah!

Woooooooooooohoooooooo! 132 days, most of them walking, ups and downs, hard days, physically demanding, mentally draining, visually exhilarating, socially uplifting, skipped sections, hurt ankles, sore feet, wobbly knees, enjoying every bit, cursing all the way, cold wet days, warm sunny… Continue Reading →

Day 131: Penultimate power hike

Day 130: R & R in Riverton

It was a fine nights sleep in the cozy bed in the globe pub in riverton. No noises and a comfortable private room. Today was going to be a rest day and I slept in late. I walked around town… Continue Reading →

Day 129: Big big big day

Oh what a day! Can’t sum it up in words, but here I go. It started raining at our quarry camp site at 2 in the morning and lasted till 5 am. I was up at 7 and while we… Continue Reading →

Day 128: Sighting Bluff

I slept really well in the cow paddock, a bit chilly but my gear is still holding out well in the cold nights. We woke up and trash had gone out already to do some farm work. We were thinking… Continue Reading →

Day 127: Beautiful power walking

It was a really rainy night and windy and cold and I didn’t get too much sleep. But I was well rested and woke up fresh. We got the ride to the spot we stopped yesterday and was supposed to… Continue Reading →

Day 126: Farm tracks aren’t as interesting anymore

The camp site was swarming with sandflies and it wasn’t much better when we got up in the morning. Brekkie with sandflies all over the face is not something I’d recommend to try. But there it was. We got tramping… Continue Reading →

Day 125: Sighting the southern seas

We had a long nights’s sleep, I woke up at nearly 8:30, I guess mostly because I hadn’t had any sleep the previous. But as we planned a short day to the next hut, we were fine with the late… Continue Reading →

Day 124: Being swept away

Gosh what a night! After we decided to camp in the valley, we had a bit of a discussion about the wind. I was breezy already and it felt like being on the 90 mile beach with gusts blowing. We… Continue Reading →

Day 123: Oh bush track, I remember why I hate you

I started the morning early but had to wait for the guy who was giving me a ride and by the time I left the hostel it was half past ten. Phil & Em were going to leave at 10… Continue Reading →

Day 122: Rocking into Te Anau in style

I got up early and chased the hunters Andy and Dave up to the car park. They were headed to Te Anau and were giving me a ride out. The feet felt nice after the rest and I pretty much… Continue Reading →

Day 121: Long flat valley walk

After a nice rest in the quiet hut, in a stunning valley, it was off to walk. The day was going to be long and flat but we still couldn’t make an early start and were out at 9. The… Continue Reading →

Day 120: Walking in the rain

I was roused at 6:30 this morning with the school camping crowd getting ready and heading out. I wasn’t too keen to start in the dark, but Phil and Em couldn’t wait in the morning chaos and decided to make… Continue Reading →
