So I did it. I joined the Christchurch Tramping Club. I have to say that I was a bit suspicious of what it was going to be like to hike in a group of a dozen hikers with different life and tramping experience under their belts. Well, I have to say now that it was great fun!

It was dark when Kupkin and I started to hike. We were quite concerned for Emma who was supposed to meet at the car park but she just wasn’t there. Where was she?
Pinnacles Hut is a fairly popular hut in the central Canterbury. Its convenient location makes it a popular destination for Christurchians who want to escape busy city life. It was one of the May weekends when Anna and decided to check the hut out.
Being back in New Zealand after nearly 3 years of nomadic across a couple of continents meant one thing for me: I was ready for a hike. It was the end of March and the first morning frosts had begun to appear across the South Island.
