ORE Westcoast 2017 Organisation

Righto, about time we get some organisation into this.

Three of us from welly have booked from the 13th to the 24th or so, so time is not an issue for us.
Some of you will arrive on the Friday no doubt so Fridays trip is no good for you, Sat then Sunday perfect and most likely home on Monday.

Sat/Sun will be when the harder trips are run naturally. These will most likely be the Chasm and Tailings, or if anyone has other harder trips that are good or better just post them up. Those two are pretty up there for length and fun.

Friday and Monday will see some shinyish trips for those that do the harder trips on the sat/sun and still have time so they can still get to see some scenery. Any recommendations on these appreciated.

Sat and Sunday will naturally have the shiny trips for those that are not going on the harder trips.


So I was thinking it makes sense to head to reefton for Friday/Saturday nights which leaves Friday and Saturday for a shiny and hard trip and move to westport sunday morning for the sunday hard and shiny trips and stay sunday night in westport. Anyone have recommendations for the shiny trip around westport which could even just be up denniston.

So choose your options on the poll. You can choose up to 4 options. Only choose the options if your are actually coming. We need to go off definitive numbers for booking accommodation etc.

Also quote the list below for Accommodation preferences and type of trips you like to do and are setup for.

Righto this is the current Attendees. Just over a month till we depart.

* Mike - Tenting/Back of wagon -- Harder trips. Shiny is good as well.
* Reece - Wagon Harder trips,
* Stinky - Wagon. Harder trips.
*Keith (Smurf) Happy to tent, or crashing with Nuts. Harder/Shiny trip
*Jafa tenting, staying well away from Smurf crashing with his Nuts. fawkin southerners.. :mrgreen: Harder the tracks the better
*Stealth - tenting shiny-ish trips (unless can get project truck sorted)

Plan could be to stay at the westport campground just as tent sites, perhaps the first couple of nights (Friday, Saturday) Some of us will be down Thursday night there. Then Move to where we feel we want to go next and what tracks we want to tackle and maybe camp in the bush.

After a Easter, a few of us will be heading southwards and exploring around a bit. Most likely camping up river valleys.

Wait? What? Just noticed this... recently booked the cruiser on the ferry for a couple of weeks on the Mainland either side of Easter - will be coming down geared up for mountainbiking, tramping, camping & hopefully a little 4wd action too.

Was planning to be in the Reefton / Westport area at some point & have no set plans for the Easter weekend so will keep an eye on this thread as we get more organised & let ya know if we are coming. Obviously with 35's, a V8 & a winch I'm set for moderately challenging tracks but I still have to drive it 800km home so 'panel damage & broken CV's guaranteed' type stuff might be off the menu :)

Tell me about it :roll: :lol: Last time the truck went to Reefton it left with a smashed in side & a grenaded back diff :oops:

Thinking we will aim to meet up for some 4wd sometime Thurs-Fri-Sat but it will depend on weather & what else we get up to.
