Hey all, I live in Christchurch so not really arriving so much as continuing an adventure. I am looking for travel mates leaving Christchurch Jan 20 or 21 and interested on tramping perhaps the Abel Tasman. I am looking to maybe do a full loop on the Abel Tasman up the coast then down the inland track to get back but hey im flexible. I am not looking for an all out get it done as fast as you can kind of hike more or a what ever happens happens where ever we stop we stop its all good. At this point I have no confirmed plans I am not even sure how I want to get there. Although I have a vehicle I am inclined to hitch or bus or car share to get to the track. I am also flexible as to the track I am keen on Doubtful or Milford Sound ( Milford huts are sold out so it would be bush camping 500+m off the track if thats where we go) whatever, I have a few weeks to have some fun with in the summer so open to options. I would consider a trip up to the north island as well so post some ideas and lets see what happens.
