    Remember first going into the original Poplars hut some 45 years back as a kid with the old man and his hunting mates out of BoP NZDA.
    Poplars hut and a lot of trips into Pukareao (spelling) hut. Fark.....many many moons ago!!

    Only time I was there was in late 90s
    Stopped at the old Poplars site and had a brew after coming over from Okui and Mangapouri
    Had a stormy night at Maungapouri. 4 or 5 locals came in during early hours for shelter and a brew. I slept through most of it and they left before I woke up
    Stayed a couple of nights at Midway
    Met a possum trapper after we just about shot his horse as they broke through the bushes
    Turns out he was the brother-in-law of someone I worked with years later
