Having adventures in the New Zealand bush, hills and mountains...
Hi, Jon here, I have been visiting the forests and mountains for many years, with particular attention to the parks and forests close to Christchurch, my home town.

In this blog you will find information about tramping, hiking, equipment, tramping food, the history of tramping in New Zealand, environmental issues, mountaineering and other outdoor concerns of interest to me.

I will also have reports about the trips I do, including photos and information about the tracks, facilities and huts I use while visiting the iconic New Zealand back country.
