Wheels-on-the-Road Dream Comes True

July 4th, 2020|Tags: , , |

Motorhome shows are just the place to light a fire in the belly; they inspire many to take part in the RV lifestyle. For some that might mean acquiring a Mooloo 30-second tent in order to kick-start their outdoor adventures, perhaps a classic caravan that needs a little work, or just possibly a new or [...]

West Coast Wilderness Trail – Fossicking in the Wilderness

March 7th, 2020|Tags: , , , , , , |

I became officially designated a fool in a town called Ross. You see a few days earlier I had travelled up the coast with a riding mate on our way to the official opening of the Paparoa Track. Given the long journey from the Deep South, we decided to break up the road trip and [...]

The Trug Maker Takaka – Carrying on a Tradition

March 7th, 2020|Tags: , , , |

Trug maker Tony Hitchcock is a survivor of a critically endangered species. According to the Heritage Crafts Association (of which The Prince of Wales is president), the Golden Bay artisan woodworker practises an ancient craft in danger of dying out in England, its country of origin. Trugs are traditional shallow baskets made from shaped slats [...]

Titirangi – Beyond the Bright Lights

March 7th, 2020|Tags: , , , , |

Although media reports led us to believe that Titirangi was overrun by marauding gangs of rats, some as big as small cats, others the size of cocker spaniels and probably by now as large as your average German Shepherd, we didn’t see a single rat at all. Well that’s not quite true. At Titirangi’s monthly [...]

Cycle + walk trails – St James Cycle Trail

March 7th, 2020|Tags: , , , , |

I had been looking forward to this trip for some time – a true ‘out of the way’ ride with stunning backcountry scenery – although I admit I had some apprehension. While the trail is near to Hanmer Springs, I would be cycling alone at altitude, away from roads, with no mobile coverage, rivers to [...]

Coastal Pacific – RV, Rail and Runways

When we organised our recent trip to Christchurch, our plan was to drive to Wellington via Napier and Martinborough, ferry to Picton, then drive to Blackball, visit Greymouth, and then head to Christchurch via Arthur’s Pass to deliver the Dethleffs Distinction Trend motorhome to UCC. For the return journey we had the option of either [...]

Picton to Kaikōura

March 7th, 2020|Tags: , , , , |

When I awoke to splendid sunshine after a sound night’s sleep at the Aussie Bay DOC camp in the Marlborough Sounds, I was feeling pretty excited by the prospects of my first drive down the Kaikōura Coast since the earthquake. My first experience of this revered stretch of our country was in late 1949 when [...]

Cycle + Walk Trails New Plymouth Taranaki – a Coastal Embrace

March 7th, 2020|Tags: , , , , |

The crackling sounds of breaking waves pierce the crisp winter morning air as I amble down to the start of the New Plymouth Coastal Walkway near the Lee Breakwater. The clear blue sea stretches out to the horizon where it meets the soft powder-blue sky. The Power Station chimney towers over a container ship berthed [...]
