Greetings, fotoditzi

...Routeburn, Greenstone Tracks, 1975 - '76, Kathy Delaney, Arie, Chris & Peter Bras, all of Christchurch... Remember it pretty well, indeed. We had rain for a good part of the night, with us four in two little light tents, with me getting out in my raincoat to cut a trench in the ground, above the top of each tent, down the side, to direct the abundant rain away from the ground under out tents. Low & behold, it worked - or else at least one of our tents would have been wet inside... Next night we had to find a spot in the hut - along with a lot of other trampers...! Dad (Arie) & I slept on the floor, while all the other bunks were taken. Next day was wet as heck, mostly light rain, but we made it to the Kiwi Lodge, a brand new hut ion the Greenstone Track. Somebody had made Christmas decorations there - lovely too! Worst part was taking a dip in the river to clean outselves - was it cold. Thankfully we spent the night undisturbed, with only the four of us in that hut - New Years Eve 1975. You would think the Greenstone River would be a little warmer on the last day of the year... NO IT WAS NOT. We continued our walk down to the lake, collecting berries to cook for desert, even if they were somewhat green still. Used the last of Dad's suger to give our cooked mix a bit of sweetness too! Then had to walk in the water for several hundred metres, up to Christ & my waist in places, and deeper for the other two. Of course, it is not too cold in the Lake is it...? Lair!!! Then a long walk towards the carpark, with Dad eventually getting a lift on the back of a motorbike, then returning with the car an hour or so later. Homewards towards ChCh, with another night sleeping in a campground where WE ALL HAD HOT SHOWERS!!! That made us more acceptable - one cold dip in 7 days was not enough to keep us free of smelling off! Such is the joys of tramping.

Beautiful! like Best wishes, Andy
