With the help of some excellent local knowledge, we think we have a great week planned with a little something to keep everyone happy.
The HeavyWagons will be starting just out of Papatowai, 26km (35 mins towing time approx.), south of Owaka, meeting on Saturday 24th February, staying two nights at this campsite.
During the course of the week we will be travelling over nice easy rolling country, over back country roads, farm land, through native bush and also traveling along part of the old railway with some great sea views thrown in and hopefully tides willing a chance to get down onto the sand and surf.
We are hoping to average at least 20-25km a day, with only 2-3 camp shifts for the week.
For those thinking of joining us for the first time our trail caters to the speed of bigger wagons and heavier horses. As such we go at the pace best suited to these big rigs. If you like a slower pace (in the earlier stages a bit of stop starting) shorter days and a friendly atmosphere this could be the trail for you.
each Individual or group brings their own food, cooking equipment, utensils etc. Sleeping arrangement consist of your floats or tents etc. and horses are individually penned so electric fencing is required.
We will again be having two potluck dinners, the first as an ice breaker and another towards the end of the week where we have again organised an evening’s entertainment.
Any catering or horse queries can be directed to Kaye Walker firstname.lastname@example.org 0273466898.
