Trampin’ and scroggin | Te Anau, New Zealand


While “trampin’ and scroggin” sounds like the next hit buddy cop movie, it’s actually what I was doing and eating soon after landing in New Zealand. Tramping meaning hiking, and scroggin equaling trail mix here in Kiwi land. I was also up to quite a bit of craft beer-ing, Harraway oats-ing, and Transfercar-ing, but that’s too long for a post title.

Harraway Oats
These bad boys. So good. Probably went through 5 kilos during my time in NZ.
This was awesome. Freedom for free (mostly).

Going from Egypt to New Zealand after nearly 7 months in Africa was a HUGE change, in just about every way. Of course, it wasn’t planned that way.

The idea was to go to Rome for a week for some developed world action, then down to Israel, Jordan, and India. But the travel gods had other plans. After failing to get a spot on New Zealand’s famed Milford Track – the finest walk in the world – in April or May to wrap up A Great Journey, I found a single opening in February.

I was in Kenya at the time just kicking off the new year. After mulling it a few minutes, I decided to book it and figure out the logistics later. It meant I’d have to hustle quite a bit through Egypt, but I’d been there before. Ultimately, 8 days and the Milford Track was better than more days in Egypt and the continued frustration of clicking through the DOC calendar on a daily basis without finding an option to hike in April. It’s insanely popular (and beautiful), this hike.

I was still in the throes of the Sudan visa saga, so I was mighty glad to learn that New Zealand is one of the easiest countries to get into, no matter which passport I used or where I’d been. And I was also glad United could get me there for 35,000 miles and 100 USD on a fun combination of flights.

I purposely chose the longest possible connections so I’d be able to leave the airport, reload on some necessities, and make it to New Zealand just in the nick of time.

So, four continents in two days looked like this: Cairo-Munich-Shanghai-Auckland-Queenstown.

A beer and oompa band at Hofbrauhaus Munchen
Prost to a good place for a layover! Some great memories here from a couple trips.
Pretzel and beer at Hofbrauhaus Munchen
Lunch at the Hofbrauhaus, where the beer was big (and good) and the pretzels bigger.
Adidas Munchen
Picked up some much-needed new kicks at Adidas. When in Rome…
Hobbit Queenstown.
My precious reading material for the flights.

For maximum flexibility, the only other thing I booked was a bus from Queenstown to Te Anau, where the Milford Track fun would begin.

Fast forward to February 12th and I got my first dose of reality. New Zealand was a far cry from Africa and other than the welcome free shower at the airport, everything was far more overpriced and overbooked than I had imagined. With virtually every place in Auckland sold-out,  I pitched my tent in a secluded spot in a park by the airport that night and hoped the cops wouldn’t bother me. Thanks, Chinese New Year.

New Zealand Avos
Just the beginning of the sticker shock. And avo withdrawals.

Not a great way to shake the jet lag, but the excitement of hiking in NZ kept me up anyhow.

Complicating my much-anticipated trip into New Zealand’s great outdoors were knee and shoulder injuries I picked up in Luxor 6 days before my scheduled departure. The left pedal snapped completely off my bike as I was pedaling upright and I flipped in an ungracious epic fail. In hindsight, I was lucky it was those two body parts and not my face/head, as I came down hard and rolled. This being Egypt, there was no helmet involved with the bike rental.

Bike rental Luxor, Egypt.
This epic fail in Luxor, Egypt was not fun. Still isn’t.

I was too stubborn (and unemployed) to cancel the epicness that awaited in the fiordlands, so against doctors orders I did three Great Walks in my first two weeks: The Milford Track, the Routeburn Track, and the Kepler Track. About halfway through, on the downward part of the Routeburn, my knee made it clear that it was not ok, no matter how many meds I took. But what could I do?

The DOC cancellation policy is financially unforgiving, so I just pretended I was Japanese and ganbaru’d the hell out of things. I ended up crushing the uphills and getting passed on the downhills, on which I gingerly moved trying to put as little weight on my left knee. It’s hard to do that with a 50 L bag strapped to your shoulders, but so it goes.

This was the first time I ever used hiking sticks, which were a damn good purchase and a useful souvenir that survived all the way home.

A little later, I added the Abel Tasman Great Walk, on which I kayaked for two days and walked one.

New Zealand’s outdoors were as good as advertised (despite the pesky, irritating, blood-sucking annoyance that are sandflies; I still have scars from scratching). And if the weather had cooperated, I would have checked out Mount Doom on the Tongariro Track. Alas, the travel gods didn’t grant me clear skies during the two windows I had to make it happen.

A quick look at the (amazing, put-them-on-your-list) tracks…

The Milford Track
Milford Track start
So it begins…

Billed as the finest walk in the world, it was the reason I decided to cross the damn planet on short notice. And it did not disappoint!

Milford Track New Zealand

You start out with a beautiful drive on a winding road, which gets you to the dock. Here you board a speedboat and enjoy the hell out of the view, which is fantastic all the way around.

Mostly miserable conditions ruled during the 3-night, four-day hike, but you got used to wet feet from the get-go and cold, wet everything by the end. It was absolutely gorgeous with lush greens, crystal-clear waters, and even snow near McKinnon pass.

Without a doubt, it lived up to its billing and was worth every penny.

The Routeburn Track
Routeburn Track NZ
Pshhhh. Enjoyed a brief break here my first morning. Just gorgeous and serene.

My last day on the Milford Track was my first on the Routeburn, though they were broken up with a cruise in the Milford Sound which was outstanding.

Warm weather prevailed and the bad conditions a few days earlier meant snow-capped peaks and gushing waterfalls. Right up there with the Milford Track, though the downhill was an absolutely painful endeavor.

After 6 days in the mountains, I hustled to the tourist trap that is Queenstown (shout-out to the kid from Seattle for the hitch!) and feasted upon a Fergburger. It lived up to the word-of-mouth and lines. I wish I had a pic.

Also noteworthy, the fact that you can drink on the streets in Queenstown until 10 pm, something you can’t really do anywhere else in NZ.

Craft Beer Club Queenstown
Drinking and writing (in Queenstown, here). One of the most enjoyable parts of A Great Journey.
The Kepler Track

Kepler Track NZ

After experiencing so many stunning views on the previous two hikes, I must confess that the Kepler Track was closer to a very good walk than a Great Walk. Though a dusting of snow may have changed my mind.

Nonetheless, it was a fun, albeit painful, outing that involved many a Kea – New Zealand’s mischievous (and loud) alpine parrots. I crushed it in about half the time the signage said to allot, if only to get the hell off my leg.

I also met Carole and Sherry, some wonderful gals from Portland with an insane amount of travel under their belts, on my last night there. We had a great dinner the following day in Te Anau, where I saw this most Kiwi front-page.

You know you’re in New Zealand when…
The Abel Tasman

Abel Tasman National Park New Zealand

A great break for the knee, paddling the mostly-calm waters of Abel Tasman National Park was a great experience! The crew at Abel Tasman Kayaks provided great equipment and a solid walk-through. The clarity of the water, soft sand, seals, and low-key campsites were refreshing.

Walking back the last day, the track was a bit busy and Cleopatra’s Pool underwhelming (and over-populated by sandflies). But, the kayaking portion more than made up for it, as did the great card game at the campground my 2nd night.


Following the hikes, I gave my knee quite a rest, not hiking for the rest of A Great Journey. So I criss-crossed both islands in my transfercars, meeting great people and taking in some jaw-dropping scenery and cool cities along the way, thoroughly enjoying New Zealand. More on that soon.

Or maybe you shouldnt generalise so considerably. Its better if you think about what others may have to say instead of just going for a gut reaction to the subject. Think about adjusting your own believed process and giving others who may read this the benefit of the doubt.Jobs offered

  91. My spouse and I stumbled over here by a different web page and thought I might check things out. I like what I see so now i’m following you. Look forward to looking into your web page yet again.

  92. Great goods from you, man. I’ve understand your stuff previous to and you’re just too excellent. I really like what you have acquired here, really like what you’re stating and the way in which you say it. You make it entertaining and you still care for to keep it sensible. I can not wait to read far more from you. This is actually a wonderful web site.

  93. Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!

  94. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is needed to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100 sure. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks

  95. It is appropriate time to make some plans for the longer term and it’s time to be happy. I’ve read this post and if I could I wish to suggest you some interesting things or tips. Perhaps you can write next articles referring to this article. I wish to read even more things about it!

  96. I have to show some thanks to this writer just for rescuing me from such a setting. As a result of surfing throughout the the web and getting recommendations which are not powerful, I assumed my life was well over. Being alive devoid of the approaches to the difficulties you’ve solved all through your entire review is a critical case, and the ones that might have adversely damaged my career if I had not encountered your blog post. The talents and kindness in handling the whole lot was very useful. I’m not sure what I would’ve done if I had not come across such a subject like this. I can also at this time look ahead to my future. Thanks for your time so much for this reliable and results-oriented guide. I won’t think twice to recommend your blog post to any individual who should have tips about this topic.

  97. A lot of of the things you claim is supprisingly accurate and that makes me ponder why I hadn’t looked at this with this light before. This piece really did switch the light on for me personally as far as this particular issue goes. But there is 1 issue I am not too comfortable with and whilst I attempt to reconcile that with the actual core idea of the position, permit me observe exactly what the rest of the subscribers have to point out.Very well done.

  98. Hi, Neat post. There is a problem with your web site in internet explorer, would test this… IE still is the market leader and a large portion of people will miss your fantastic writing because of this problem.
