Update Joe Valesko Te Araroa Hike

Just heard from Joe - He and Sheryl are at Hamner Springs today doing a resupply before attacking Harpers Pass. I guess next update will come in a week when they arrive at Arthur's Pass.

When Sheryl was pulling out (now continuing) Joe had an Olive Hexamid Solo tent w/ beak, and a Regular width, Long Length, -7C sleeping bag shipped to me for him to continue solo. If you live in NZ and want either of these great items call or email me (0274 500 552 rob@assess.co.nz). A great opportunity to save on freight and GST.

  1. Dear Rob,
    Your blog is a treasure of information to ultralight tramping. I enjoyed and learned a lot from reading your entries (10-12 so far) and I have lot more to read and it was very funny at times (poop scoop :-). Thank you for sharing this with all of us.

    I have been tramping for last 10 years but was never into 'ultralight'. That changed 2 years ago when I had just finished walking the Te Araroa trail and I was having knee troubles. For TA I had a heavy backpack (around 20 kgs after restocking), for my upcoming walk http://900days900huts.info/ I will implementing many things you have mentioned. I will bug you more with some specific queries later.

    PS> if you still have that Hexamid Solo tent and sleeping bag for sale, I might be interested.

    Thanks and please keep writing :-)

Hey, thanks for you contribution - I monitor my blog weekly. I will reply with comments, ideas and suggestions ASAP - In the meantime, remember, hiking is an outdoors experience to enjoy, not an army boot camp training exercise!!
