Do It Yourself: Tramping solo

From Lately, 10:40 pm on 20 January 2020

Hazel Philips was told she couldn't carry a pack and the gear she needed on a solo tramp around Mt Ruapehu. So she decided to prove she could. That was about eight years ago and since then she's done heaps of solo tramps. She joins the show tonight to chat about how to prepare properly for a solo tramp, what to take, what to leave behind and what to do if it all goes badly wrong.
