If you’ve never tried an open bivvy style shelter it’s well worth giving it a go as it’s the kind of thing you might consider taking everywhere. It’s surprising how much wind and rain they can handle - if you set them the right way of course! #roomwithaview  @tomakass

“This week we have some exciting things coming. As part of Get Outdoors Week, @macpac is holding free outdoor awareness and safety events throughout the week held at different stores.

This Saturday the 16th, I will be holding an event at the Macpac Wanaka store. Aside from showcasing the benefits of getting the family outdoors, my goal is to teach key preparedness, skills and knowledge which can be used to not only to prevent dangerous situations on your adventures but also how to thrive in one.

Throughout the event we will be covering an introduction to the mindset of preparedness and survival, gear planning an preparation, survival kits, basic bushcraft knowledge and tips, mindset strategies and appropriate clothing and how to layer properly.

Spaces are limited so if you're interested to join us make sure you reserve your spot.”

Amazing scenery from an incredible part of the country. Did you take extra days off and make last week a loooooong weekend? Remember to tag us or add #MakeItHomeNZ to feature.  #Repost @mattharveynz

“Enroute to Mount Cook, the initial plan was to hike up to Sefton Bivvy for the night. As we drove we noticed a basin up in the peaks towering above the road. A thought entered our minds to abandon plans and explore the area to see what lay above. We had a search online and couldn’t find anything... exactly the type of hike I enjoy. Out came the map that night and after studying the contours we found a plausible route to the top. The next morning we set off. After many hours of bush wacking, scrambling over cliff faces and wash outs and numerous different route attempts we found a safe way to the top. The view was surreal. With Tasman Lake, Lake Pukaki, Lake Tekapo and Lake Benmore insight we watched the sunset and the beautiful colours fill the sky. What a night”

“Appreciation post: Today, I’m thankful for what my body can endure. I’ve hit an all time low of 34% FEV1 baseline, with exercise and overnight O2. But this weekend, my body was able to manage 700m of elevation  gain over 4km, with a pack and no supplemental oxygen to camp in the mountains. The “lung transplant talk” was a big wake up call to the pressure and stress I’ve put on myself over the last couple of years. The goal now is to enjoy as much of this as my body can handle, and reducing stresses. Then maybe the next transplant talk will be a while off yet!”

“Remutaka Trig Track, Upper Hutt. 
This track starts near the Remutaka Hill summit and zig zags it’s way up to 725m. It can be very windy and exposed but well worth the short walk for the picturesque views over the Tararua Ranges.”
