Ben Lomond & Bowen Peak in Queenstown New Zealand

This time we head up and do a classic New Zealand day walk with an extra summit thrown in for good measure!

This is a longer format video – it is full of ranting as a result. I am.. sorry?

I stole a clip from this video without permission – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N8hO2cNugCc – hopefully Adam finds it in his heart to forgive me. Once you’ve watched this, you can watch that video and see what video content that is actually good looks like.

Have a kick ass day my friends!

Operating on the side of the highway isn’t the greatest, turns out.

Mysterious Package?

I got a piece of mail with a callsign (ZL1MY) in the return address so naturally I was curious!
Behold my high level dexterity as I deftly open this package with a single hand.
This is what my carpet looks like after 2 days with no vacuuming.
No climbing video this week team, I’m resting a wee foot boo boo!
