    Would be interested to hear about some of the stuff. Did try to find some of the old spots of local legends in the Kawekas but no luck yet.
    Nothing is tough about having a 70 lb bow and looking like an uncoordinated praying mantis while trying to draw it back.

    I got told about one of them. The Kawekas are a bit of a drive so haven't been back to find it.

    He has heaps of them scattered around the park. He has a special way of hiding the tracks to them. There'll be something out of place along a track and then 20 to 30 metres off the track there'll be a path. usually a tarp pond for water supply. The old fellas Hilton and Alan still mess with him by mucking around with the special signal and then find him and have a chat. They start cracking up when he rants on about the person who is moving things about.

    Still going strong for an 80 or so year old.

    That was the stuff that I remember off the top of my head.

    There is not a lot of common sense among the DOC nowadays.What on earth are they thinking about rock cairns for let alone removeing them, pathetic.
    Cairns are there for a logical reason, DOC don't do logic.

    Hautapu has always been a favourite mainly cause of the good times with my Poppa and the deer in the area (Pukeroa) back then. Recently a couple of good boars.
    Was up there Sunday and the Plateau. Heard one but in an unlikely spot.
    Waipunga and the South was a great hang out for a sleep and a base also.
    Great pictures guys.
