    Anyone keen to tag along?

    Next weekend (11/12) Im heading down to Piropiro shelters in Pureora. There was a few others coming but its just down to me now as things come up for the rest. Im going regardless but the sensible side of my marriage has concerns about me being out of communication by myself for the weekend lol. She wasnt satisfied with my plan of getting friendly with some lycra clad mountain bike ladies.

    So If anyones keen to come have wander round in the scrub with a GC Id be happy to have ya along....might even put a feed of veni bangers on

    Take a good size tarp and rope .
    close off the shelter and will be warm as toast.
    Get yourself a emergency beacon it calms the minster of finances right down.
    Great spots down there .
    good luck
    Love walking my gun
