Day 2 on the Kepler track involves a climb to the highest point-Mt Luxmore, 1400 metres, and then a roller coaster journey along open exposed tops, with magnificent views, and then a steep descent of about 1000 meters, back in the bush, to Irisburn Hut.

Daypacks: Special Offer!

Hi everyone,

I've just started a small company, Green Tree Road, selling commercial quality backpacks. I think that these packs would be perfect for you with their clean yet rugged design. These 28L packs are simplicity at a realistic price.

Although we're a small company, we are willing to offer you a special price, even better than the one on our website.

-$65 each for 1-5 units

-$60 each for 6-10 units

-$55 each for orders over 10 units

For more information and photos of the packs, have a look at our website: http://www.greentreeroad.co.nz/home/

We look forward to hearing back from you regarding your interest. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.

Tararua maps/posters?

Hello hello,

My partner and I are avid Tararua trampers, and we always admire the large maps at some of the trailheads and info sites which show peaks, tracks and huts (not the standard topo maps but the huge poster ones!). Any ideas on how I might get one of these to decorate our walls? I'm planning to stop into the DOC office today, but thought some TTCers might have some impressive Tararua maps/posters we could put on the wall! Willing to pay for them, of course :)

Thanks! Kellie

Your could get hold of a map and print it yourself, eg download a topo50 map, or contact a map maker New Topo

Brilliant Biscuits

Hi! a few years ago I met some of your intrepid members while working on the Mt Somers track and they generously shared some famous tararua biscuits with me. I have tried to replicate them since - not completely successful. Pleased to find site and recipe -why didn't I look sooner?

Question: the ones I tried had oats, do I just exchange wholemeal flour for oats?

Thank you Gabrielle lange_gm [snail] yahoo [period] co [period] uk

Answer: Oats will make the biscuits crumbly. Using flour instead will make them harder. Also, golden syrup will make them hard. Go easy on the sugar and syrup.

Sending "trip reports" by email

Does anyone know how to email the trip organisers with the statistical trip report i.e how many people went on the trip etc. There is reference to trip reports and tramping reports - I'm not sure of the difference - but the link to create a tramping report doesn't seem to work.

Help please

Marilyn Bramley

Please see the Trip Reports and Tramping Reports pages to gain an idea of what these are.
