SI Winter trip July 17 2015

Postby Smurf » Tue Apr 28, 2015 11:10 pm

Is it too early to think about planning another winter trip.
I have had a ball on the last few trips so I'm keen to see who is interested in sorting another for this year.
Any thoughts??

I was thinking Westport again as last years trip was a bit of a track clearing mission perhaps this year we go back for some more driving.
July August sometime?

Depends who is keen I guess. I was just putting the idea out there. But I am keen to have a look through Seddonville , Smith Clearing areas. Perhaps a day in Reefton and head through Wills Claim, Petrol Hill, Green hut areas?

Westport or Reefton, what ever suits the masses. I wouldn't mind having a look up through Wills Claim, and anywhere else I haven't been, not into the Chasm though, I want a few more bars before then...
If we get enough interest no reason we can't run a few trip side by side, tuff and not so tuff(me)

Reefton wouldn't be to bad, least in the middle of winter you have a warm place to stay if you're at the old nurses hostel
