Friends of 42 Traverse inc. are holding their annual cut-back the weekend of 21st November, with the support of DOC.
If you have nothing on come join in!
Accommodation is available at Downhill ski club in National Park for $30 Saturday night. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with names and numbers and to get the account to pay to. Bring gloves, loppers, secateurs, small hand saw, food & drinks etc.. We will do a shared BBQ dinner.
DOC have said they would appreciate assistance for track clearing before it opens for Summer.
This is outside the usual seasonal access for 4WD's so this will allow clearing work to be done without having other 4WD vehicles on the route.
The plan is to work the Saturday and if conditions allow, the Sunday morning before heading home. Also plan to drive right through, end to end, where we usually turn around and go out the way we came in.
We meet for a briefing at 9.30am on Saturday morning at Kapoors road, pumice pit carpark.
Ideas welcome for some detour on the way North, if time permits, on Sunday.
Fuel in Te Kuiti or Taumarunui(usually cost a bit more) so you have heaps!
Any questions contact Mike Fitzmaurice.
