Planning Resources

Tramping planning resources that you may require before you head out in the New Zealand outdoors.

Here is a few guidelines that I follow to ensure a successful trip.

  • Tramp in a group (min 3 people)
  • File a route intention (and have a person act on it if you are overdue)
  • Take enough food & water (include an emergency supply)
  • Take water proof & warm clothing (to prevent exposure)
  • Take a map, compass, GPS (if have one) & personal locator beacon (if you have one, especially in remote terrain)
  • Take note of the weather forecast
  • Carry mobile phone
  • Know your limits & risks
