TrailRider in NZ?

I have been looking across the Tasman for some years now. I looked even harder when Ros walk the Milford Track, on the South Island, a few years ago. The tales she told of magnificent, unspoilt wilderness screamed TrailRider. Perhaps, I thought, I need to track down a contact in New Zealand.

I have been spared the effort. The New Zealand Department of Conservation (Te Papa Atawbai) is trialling a number of chairs and this press release tells the story well.

  1. Hi Dave, just a slight miss spelling of a Maori word; it's Te Papa Atawhai - literally, The Area(or place) of Conservation.

    Hope all is well with you and Ros.
