To my wife Beryl for her support, for those weekends in the hills meant many home tasks undone or postponed.
To all those good companions over the years who have lightened and brightened the days on the hills.
And thanks to the friends who have encouraged and assisted me with this endeavour.
To Teenagers – our most valuable people.

The aim of this guide is to aid the tramper (walker, backpacker, hiker) of moderate fitness who is going on a particular trip for the first time. A few trips are simple road-end walks, but the majority are tramping trips that need boots, pack, and the usual tramping gear. The region covered is the Tararua Forest Park and its foothills; bounded roughly by the main roads along the Wairarapa and Horowhenua; the Akatarawa–Waikanae road; the Manawatu Gorge and the Remutaka Hill.

"I returned to my camp, on the 14th being 4 days without provisions, except, what I obtained, by thinning the ranks of a numerous, and destructive little animals, and to modify the name, I must call them Māori Rabbits."

Patrick Q Caples, a few days later, returning up-valley.
