labour weekend came around this year with plans to do a two day trip into the upper Waiau. But... the farmer didn't like the idea of us walking through their farm so that plan turned out to be a big flop.
lucky for us we aren't dicouraged very easily and we had been given a grant for kayaking from the CPSA so we made the most of it and busted a move to the West Coast and bunked with the mMitchel's for 5 days.
With plenty of rain there was plenty to do and we got 6 runs in total with a heli trip into the lower Hokitika amongst them.
