New episode out now. In this special episode, New Zealand caver and explorer @kieranmckaycaver opens up about one of his darkest days. On May 20, 1995, Kieran and his friend Dave Weaver performed a deep cave dive in the Pearse Resurgence, near Nelson. They were pushing the limits of what was possible at the time. At the deepest point, Dave lost consciousness and began drifting down. Kieran was unable to save him. In this confronting episode, Kieran and Andy discuss the event, the mistakes that were made and the lessons to be learnt from this tragedy. 
Everyone who spends time in the outdoors can learn something from this episode - about safety, preparedness, emergency management, and coping with the worst case scenario.

So the past few days have been slow going. There has been big storms, with thunder and lightning. So I have been timing my climbs/peaks around those. So only 42km over the past few days. Unfortunately the views have been limited and fleeting. I'm in a ski town called Caurtettes for the night and to resupply. Note the Rufuge in image three. This was at 2300mts and is for walkers to stay in. They also do dinner, breakfast and beer!! #gr10 #hikersofinstagram #trampingnz

Some more from the Whirinaki Track today, a wonderful excursion into prehistoric rainforest. Can anyone else hear the dinosaurs roaming through the trees? ▪️ ▪️ ▪️ Fun fact - the ancestors of the trees in the Whirinaki Pua a Tane Conservation Park first established themselves over 200 million years ago whilst New Zealand was still part of the supercontinent, Gondwanaland. Some of the tallest trees in the park, Kahikateas there are growing to over 65m / 213ft tall. ▪️ ▪️ ▪️ #whirinaki #whirinakitrack #whirinakiforest #centralwhirinakihut #hiking #hikingnz #hike #tramping #trampingnz #overnighttramping #explorenz #purenz #thingstodoinnz #multidaytrips #multidayhike #backpacking #lovenz #purenz #lovenewzealand #thingstodoinnz #hut #backcountry #getoutside #hike #wilderness #longwhitegypsy

The truth is I've never much liked Winter in Nelson 😱 I live for Spring arriving and spending more time outside, and all the adventures you can fit into long Summer days. I even adore crisp early Autumn, but Winter is hard. What adventures does everyone do to keep their minds and bodies active over Winter? 📷 by @nz.andy

Exploring the East Matukituki Valley on one of the most remarkably sunny and calm winter days of the year 🙌. Huxley woke up at 4:45am so I was tired and almost didn’t have the energy to motivate for a big day out, but after a few coffees and the lazy decision to pick up a takeaway picnic lunch and trail treats in town, I was ready to go. And even better, Daddy was willing to be the packhorse and carry Huxley, so I just got to enjoy a lightweight stroll and beautiful views while listening to the cute ‘baaaaaas’ and ‘moooooos’ of my little boy 🐑🐄. Bobo the monkey 🐒 came too, yet my efforts to get Huxley to love the toys I make for him don’t seem very effective.....although he did enjoy my monkey noises 😜.

After three wonderful weeks in Australia, @rarelyexcited and I flew to Queenstown to begin our six week NZ road trip. A few days after arriving in NZ we began the Kepler Track Great Walk in Fiordland National Park. I think we were both a little nervous about doing a 60km, four-day hike but it was such an amazing experience. I want to thank @takeahikephotography for their awesome blog posts that really inspired me to just go for it. The first day of the hike started out nice and flat but very quickly became a relentless uphill trek through the forest until we finally reached the alpine tussock grasslands with a breathtaking view of Lake Te Anau.

Not ten minutes into the Waihaha Hut Track, hikers are treated to their first glimpse of what is to come ... the impossibly beautiful podocarp forest of the Pureora Forest Park. The track ducks in and out of the forest as it winds its way along the banks of the Waihaha Stream, and although the forest can be cold and damp in these winter months, there is no doubt that the wetness only exacerbates the beauty of this stunning region. ▪️ ▪️ ▪️ #podocarp #podocarpforest #waihahahut #waihahatrack #pureora #pureoraforet #pureoraforestpark #hut #hutbagging #backcountry #westernbays #pureorahuts #pureoraforestwalks #centralnorthisland #explorenz #lovetaupo #adventure #purenz #hikewithmum #hiking #hikingnz #tramping #trampingnz #getoutside #hike #wilderness #womenwhohike #hikelikeawoman #longwhitegypsy

A year ago today, we have reached the highest point of the 4-day Inca Trail. Probably the most challenging hike I’ve ever done - climbed to an altitude of 4,215m that took us 9 hours to complete. Struggled with altitude sickness but enjoyed the experience as I was with amazing people as well as the love of my life. . . . #pinoyadventurersnz #tramping #trampingnz #incatrail #inca #pilgrimage #greathikingtrailsoftheworld #tripofalifetime #steppingintothepast #epichikes #highaltitudeexperience #highaltitudehiking #peru #cuzco #outdooradventures #nztramper #pinoytramper #machupicchu #incaruins #bucketlist #lovewins #lovewins 🌈 #lgbt #pride

The Waihaha Hut Track starts on the upstream side of the Waihaha River, along whose banks it meanders for the duration of the hike. Despite being narrow and precarious in places, the track is easily walkable, and regardless of the previous week of rain, was surprisingly dry ... only a few muddy stretches required skilled navigation around ankle deep puddles. ▪️ ▪️ ▪️ #waihahahut #waihahatrack #pureora #pureoraforet #pureoraforestpark #hut #hutbagging #backcountry #westernbays #pureorahuts #pureoraforestwalks #centralnorthisland #explorenz #lovetaupo #adventure #purenz #hikewithmum #hiking #hikingnz #tramping #trampingnz #getoutside #hike #wilderness #womenwhohike #hikelikeawoman #longwhitegypsy

Another weekend, another adventure. Hot on the heels of our recent overnight on the Whirinaki Track, Mum and I thought we'd check out our most local and most easily accessible hut, Waihaha Hut in the Pureora Forest Park. Thankfully the weather held off for the day, albeit it was a little chilly.

Another epic, spontaneous adventure. We kind of underestimated this unnamed mountain with a round trip of 4 hours up and down. Lake Johnson is jaw dropping with its deep blue water reflecting the Remarkables and our latest conquered hill. Such an amazing surprise, and so stoked the puggies got to enjoy it with us.

Local walks. . The Roy's Peak day walk is a must do in Wanaka and an Instagram favourite. Lucky for us, it's off season (at least for anything other than skiing!!) and not too busy. The views at the top were stunning and well worth the effort to keep going past the photo stop and reach the summit. . #royspeak #wanaka #wanakanz #wanakalife #newzealand #nzmustdo #nz #nzdaywalk #getoutside #outsideisfree #adventuretravel #freshair #hike #humanpoweredadventures #trampingnz #hikenewzealand #adventure #doc #backcountry #nztramping #alwaysgo #couplegoals #nature #naturephotography #peak #summit #royspeaktrack #lookoutmountain #outdoors #view

Planning our Christmas trip to New Zealand’s North Island has me reminiscing of our last trip there, nearly 2 years ago, when I was 4 months pregnant and delighted to finally be over my morning sickness 😁 This pic was taken on the incredible Skyline Trail, an amazing 19km day-hike from Wanaka, over Roy’s Peak and Mt Alpha and finishing in the Cardrona Valley, where you’ll have to hitch a ride back. Truly one of the most beautiful day-hikes we have ever done. Now, what adventures can we have in Northland with a 19 month old? 🤔 #newzealand #greatwalks #southisland #wanaka #tramping #trampingnz #cardronavalley #nz #familytravel #travel #travelphotography #travelplanning

ROTORUA is a little lakeside town formed in an ancient volcanic crater, culturally rich and full of life. . For me, the most amazing part is being steps away from boiling mud, soaking in the hot springs (when not boiling), tramping along forest trails... the trampolines in the middle of town.... the funky dancing and Lava nightlife with Whanau, and.... Ohh That Smell... . Can’t you smell that smell? No? Ok, enjoy the video anyway 😊🙈 . #trampingnz #hotpot #hotsprings #lava #steam #smellslikerotteneggs #rotorua #newzealand #aotearoa #whanau #dance #kiwi #kiaora #bealava #thatsmell #lynyrdskynyrd

An example of one of the smaller slip areas on the Whirinaki Track. This one was easily passable (although it's worth bearing in mind that after the heavy rain we had during the morning, the pumice became a little precarious), but others were more daunting. BE ADVISED: There are two active slip areas within 5km of the Central Whirinaki Hut that could be impassable after inclement weather. At least one of these has a detour, but you'd need to be a professional tramper to be able to take it - to me it looked as though it headed straight up over a bluff through thick forest, and there was no discernible trail. ▪️ ▪️ ▪️ #whirinaki #whirinakitrack #urewera #teureweranational park #whirinakiforest #centralwhirinakihut #firstovernight #overnighthikes #hiking #hikingnz #hike #tramping #trampingnz #overnighttramping #explorenz #purenz #thingstodoinnz #multidaytrips #multidayhike #backpacking #slips #pumice #activeslip #lovenz #purenz #lovenewzealand #showusnewzealand #thingstodoinnz #longwhitegypsy

Who else is SUPER grateful for the wonderful efforts of DoC and trail maintenance teams who work so hard to make our trails accessible?!?! It was obvious that the Whirinaki Track has been subjected to some wild weather over the years. There was plenty of evidence of treefalls across the track, as well as slips and other hazards. We only had to deal with one or two treefalls which were recent and hadn't been attended to yet. Everywhere else, we continually passed by trunks and stumps that had had a little help from a chainsaw or two... ▪️ ▪️ ▪️ #whirinaki #whirinakitrack #urewera #teureweranational park #whirinakiforest #centralwhirinakihut #firstovernight #overnighthikes #hiking #hikingnz #hike #tramping #trampingnz #overnighttramping #explorenz #purenz #thingstodoinnz #multidaytrips #multidayhike #backpacking #trailmaintenance #departmentofconservation #lovenewzealand #purenz #showusnewzealand #doc #longwhitegypsy

This means that both species face extinction in the wild. ... 188 Hector's and Maui's dolphins have been killed in set nets since 1973.
