I am planning to do the Whanganui River Journey and am looking for at least one partner (m/w) for this. Rough outline is:
Leaving from Ohakune (yeti tours) for the 5 day trip (Taumarunui - Pipiriki) on or about Feb 16, 2015. Yeti have two people also leaving on that date, although I have yet to make contact with them, and I'm unsure whether they may have reconsidered. I have another candidate, but she hasn't made a down payment yet, so I am still looking for party members.
I myself am a keen kayaker with touring experience, swimmer, and tramper. Have my own PLB and spot tracker, and am otherwise fully equipped for campsites/huts, etc. I could share a double kayak with someone less experienced, or we could go in singles.
Anyone interested could send me a PM or leave a message in reply within the next two weeks.
