  1. Good work team – they may well still be out there, so I hope you are the first to spot one.
    Chris – told you I would have a look at the website!

  2. Hi Guys, thought you might be interested in some photos of a large (rotten) egg that I found at a river mouth last night. I presume it’s from an Ostrich, although I am not sure if there are any Ostriches in the Otago area?

    If you can give me an e-mail address, I will send you the photos. It is approx. 150mm long x 120mm dia.

    Happy hunting!

  3. Thanks Chris for helping me off Mt Somers on Sept 4th! A week later and the ankle’s still swollen, but not broken. Cheers for carrying my back-pack for the best part of 4 hours and saving me from having to set off my locator beacon. Good luck with your course and long may that moa elude you – I’d hate to see your walking days come to a premature end! Happy walking in the hills. I will not forgot to pay forward all the assistance you gave me!


  4. Hi guys, Aline and Yannick here. We want to thank you all one more time! It was lovely to meet you guys! Keep posting your adventures, it’s great to read 🙂

  5. Hi Guys. Funny who & what one can find online when on a related search about Whitcombe Pass. Reading the trip diary of Great Grandfather exploring the Pass in 1915, at 70 y.o. I’m trying to find info on the early huts they stayed in the Upper Rakaia. Love your site, your trip reports & pics very interesting.

    1. Hi Jenny. Thanks for posting the comment – we always enjoy getting some feedback on the site, especially good feedback! We are glad you have enjoyed reading the trip reports. Your grandfathers diary must be fascinating. He was obviously a keen and strong man to be heading up the Whitcombe at 70 years old. Wow.

  6. Ā message for Paul. We met on the old ghost road & really enjoyed the company of your family. We have a couple of packs to give away. An ancient macpac & a more recent Deuter. If you had any way of picking them up from Nelson , you would be welcome to them. Flick me a email if you are interested enough to check out photos. Cheers and Merry Christmas , Patsy
