||A wilderness survival epic
Over the Christmas and New Year break, Daniel Rogerson, Alison Davis, and Dave Cooper ventured into the Adams Wilderness Area for a nine day climbing trip.
Several days into the trip, 600ml of rain fell in 48 hours and they found themselves in survival mode, holed up on a glacier for three nights and then in an emergency snow-cave for another three.
Come along and hear their story!
||Rafting on the Clarence
Last December Jim Baltaxe and five other Club members went rafting in fine weather down the scenic Clarence River.
Jim has some rapid-action movies to show and a raft of inflated stories to tell us about the trip.
|| Winter activities evening
Join the Club's winter sports enthusiasts at 7.30pm for a glass of warm gluhwein, then sit back and hear how the Club can help you to plan and enjoy some cool adventures in the snow this winter.
The Club's Tararua Lodge on Mt Ruapehu is a wonderful base facility for skiing, snow boarding and alpine climbing and our ski and alpine instruction programme is about to get underway (there will be a final opportunity to sign up for these courses).
Please note the earlier start time and $4 entry charge.
||Trekking the Har Ki Doon Trail
Har Ki Doon ('Valley of God'), a hanging valley in the Garhwal Himalayas, has been described as ideally suited to the fair-weather trekker seeking easy access to views of the rugged peaks of northern India and "an authentic alternative to the teahouse circuits of Nepal".
Since 'discovering' Har Ki Doon In 2004, Javer (Joe) Naran, a retired school teacher, has taken three groups on nine-day excursions along the 80 kilometre Har Ki Doon Trail.
||A journey around East Timor
Jan Nye spent three years living and working in East Timor, a country with mountains that soar to 2,963 meters and dive spots with wonderful names like Bob's Rock and Jim's Crack.
Jan will take us on a journey around this newly independent country, which has seen tough times and is now determined to move on.
||Christmas in Cusco
In December 2011 Elizabeth Bridge travelled to Peru to walk the Inca Trail and visit the Amazon rainforest.
On the way she enjoyed Christmas and New Year in the city of Cusco (altitude 3,350 metres), climbed thousands of stone steps to Macchu Pichu and visited a Peruvian tributary of the Amazon River.
