Christmas truce 1914Weekend social is for non political chat. What’s on for the weekend, gigs, film or book reviews, sports, or whatever.

No politics, no aggro, why can’t we all just get along?

    “How are you spending yours?”

    I’ll be deep deep deep deeeep (Eddie Murphy deep) in the Waitakere Ranges. Hopefully not deep in mud, but probably quite likely. Icy waterfalls, slippery riverbeds, paretaniwha and gullyferns, it’s like a home away from home. Then I will be BBQing deep into the chilly night, whatever I can find. Whether you are vegan, vege or beef-eater, BBQ in the winter is so much more primal than summer events.

    Model-X toy and craft exhibition at West Wave in Henderson (Sat., Sun., and Mon., 9 am to 5 pm).

    No, it’s not very socialist or revolutionary. But kids of all ages enjoy the vast array of scale models (trains, boats, planes, doll houses, etc.) The last time I went with a 5 year old who could have stayed the night.

    Admission $7 for adults. $4 for kids.

    Singing in the forecast rain as we tramp the Abel Tasman for the first time, if you call tramping having your pack taken by boat from hut to hut……………..

      Enjoy! I feel very privileged to have done it the easy way too, but needs must.

      We did the thee day walk in January in the pouring rain – just had to go for the detail of the forests rather than relying on the expansive views of the coastline (although we got some of those with breaks in the weather) for pleasure. We had John Glasgow as a guide – incredibly detailed knowledge of the track, ecosystems and also gave an overview of the legislative history. Couldn’t have had better.

      Those few days will live with me forever.

      My sisters did the boat to hut experience in the Sounds. Since they were in their 70s it made the difficult become possible. Pity about the rain Mac.

      The rain happened on the third day, in buckets at night so we forwent the 2.30 am crossing of the Awaroa inlet at low tide for reasons which were wet and cold and probably thigh deep.

      Great scenery and track, very helpful DOC staff and a highlight was telling off a group of six feisty and noisy Frenchmen in the sleeping quarters, in French.

      Zut alors!
