    Golden Hills Hut Restoration

    Our new member Murray N has asked me to post a series of five stories about the restoration of the old Golden Hills hut in the Kaimanawa Range - Murray is a very experienced Tauranga hunter and builder
    Murray has developed the stories with his tech advisor who formatted them into pdf files - I have arranged to store them in the cloud on a Google directory - so long as the link remains open for others to view - they should be fine - let me know if they fall over
    Enjoy -

    Absolutely excellent.
    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

    I love seeing things like this happening, Keeping our local history is so important but seems to be overlooked so often. We are a young country but we have lost so much of our history already.
    Top effort and a great read.

    Tech advisor?

    In this day and age I take it this is probably his 12 year old child.



    Thanks for posting those - good to see huts being restored instead of pulled down.

    Big ups to those guys.

    Golden Hills is a special place for a number of NI backcountry roamers for a number of reasons.....a very pretty spot, lots of farming and hunting history......

    What an awesome thread

    I love seeing stuff like this. Restoring a hut and keeping the soul of the original intact and retaining some of the history.

    Well done and a huge "thank you" to everyone involved.

    Just Awesome
    Love their use of the local wood and great to see it split and used in the hut.
