    Kinloch - Kawakawa Bay Track

    10 k each way for Tramping and Cycling
    Completed the return trip in 3.75 hours today.
    Great track for both activities, awesome Bush and views with the lake either end for a well deserved dip!
    Here some photos, you can continue another 10 to Whangamata Road and loop back to Kinloch on Whangamata Road, another 10 k, if your keen or just dumb.

    In a civilized and cultivated country, wild animals only continue to exist at all when conserved by the sportsman. The excellent people who protest against all hunting, and consider sportsmen as enemies of wildlife are wholly ignorant of the fact that in reality the genuine sportsman is by all odds the most important factor in keeping wild creatures from total extinction.

    On ya Maca. Getting a bit grey old fellah.
    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

    Thanks to a local farmer the fallow are about but the surrounding farms get poached lots, They are trying to stop that as far as im aware, Also been told if farm workers shoot a fallow they will be fired on the spot, Unsure how true that is though. Nice area that part of the country.

    I need to find some nice walking country round here Maca - but at this stage it is just up the hill and beat the clock. Up the steep side - first gate to the trig in 22 minutes today so a bit of work to do to get it back under 20 minutes. Nice scenery - I might have to resort to doing it twice to get my steps up - 13,000 steps and a 290m climb today.
