Call for Expressions of Interest
Using Nelson as a base I am planning to do two pack carry walks on the South Island of New Zealand this coming January. The first week will be on the Heaphy Track across the North West corner of the South Island. The longest Great Walk at 78.4 km, the Heaphy Track traverses a range of landscapes from mountains to sea, crossing rivers and streams through beautiful beech forest, rolling areas of red tussock and podocarp forest. The second week will be spent on the Travers-Sabine Circuit. The 80 km Travers–Sabine Circuit reaches deep into the heart of the mountains of Nelson Lakes National Park. Tranquil beech forests, fields of waving tussocks, 2000 metre-high mountains and clear rushing streams are highlights of the walk.
To join the group or for further information please contact Ian Mair. As I will be busy during September and October I would like to have bookings in place early. Contact me before end-July if you are interested.
The next BSAR training weekend is 20-21 July 2013. The annual training weekend is planned to be at Marysville and Lake Mountain, for all current and prospective BSAR members. It has not been determined yet whether it will involve snow or not, as that will depend on weather conditions.
This is a good opportunity for anyone who has a future interest in BSAR membership to also attend.
