West coast paddling from 3rd Feb

Wow what an adventure... Some fantastic paddling so far, and tomorrow I'm off on a week of mountaineering high above Fox Glacier in Mt Cook NP. Just stunning.

Following that, after 3rd Feb, I'll be around on the west coast and would love to meet some other boaters to tackle any of the following rivers:

Toaroha (III / IV)
Lower Hokitika (IV) (again!)
Totara (III)
Lower Kakapotahi (IV)
Waiho (III)
Makawhio (IV / IV+)
Waiototo (III / IV)
Mokihinui (III / IV)

And of course the two day expedition on the Karamea (III / IV (V)) again as it was just sooo good!

Drop me an email - if you're around or maybe I'll just see you at Hokitika!
