    Did you go over to the Seemac (sp) hotel? Thats a nice walk from the road end. So too is going right through to the Billygoat/Coppermine if you have a couple of days. Nice country and the odd deer all of the way.

    We have probably met, Dundee. Where are you farming?

    I use too work under the Ranges now I'm 7 clicks east. That Harris hut in between Kumeti and Kiritaki is not a bad area as well.

    I know Dave well. Thats the Seamac he has a lot to do with that hut aye.

    Couldn't be bothered climbing ridges today so I snuck around the lowlands and explored more ground.
