    Mill Rd end Ruahines- Trekking pole left leaning agaisnt DOC sign

    Hi Guys,

    Just been speaking to my retired neighbor, he did a tramp up into Howletts Hut from the rd end at Mill Rd, came out yesterday.

    He put his trekking pole agaisnt the DOC sign to take a few photos, got back to home in Napier and remembered his pole was still there.

    If anyone is down that way and happen to find the trekking pole, he'd quite like it back, he's had it for years and it has been to a lot of places with him.

    Fingers crossed.

    Cheers

    Brads, Dundee, send out a search party!
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    You're not wrong, some of these trappers are bloody fit old buggers. This guy also did a lot of hunting in his younger years down south, and has some good stories.
