The Great Outdoors - Tramping

From The Weekend , 10:25 am on 7 January 2017

New Zealand is a nation of walkers but we're also living in a country where the weather can turn from nice to nasty in a heartbeat, catching out those who are unprepared.

Lynn Freeman meets keen trampers Illona Keenan, chief guide of Wellington Tramping and Mountaineering Club, and Peter Barber from the Tararua Tramping Club at the Otari-Wilton reserve.
