Hey there HL – you have been to most places where I have been – did you ever put your feet up in this one – lower end of the Oroua River cullers camp 1966 – you may be a bit young for this one  Grin

I have huge respect for cullers over the years – they must have been pretty amazing men back in this era and earlier – I would love to hear some stories about the time they spent on their culling trips – the country they covered etc – might make an interesting forum thread sometime – or is there one on here somewhere ?

not too young cruzer,,upper pohangina and camp between mid po and leon kinvik were like that
down on the coast arrived at one hut to find it full of silt,,another got flattened by snow and slid into the gully,,the roof survived to allow me a somewhat wee shelter,,not as quixotic as some of the photos from marlborough shelters
  

It is much better to Hit the Animal in the right place, with a Rifle you can shoot well, then to hit it poorly with a Large Calibre..John Nosler

Not a lot of insulation in a sheet of canvas
I see there was a shovel by the door – what were they used for  Huh

The only photo I've got that I took, was transferred from a slide to disc, but in the process it's back to front!!! Doesn't really show the  hut off very well, but I can email it if you want it. Still would have the original slide somewhere.

Don't know when that bivvy was put there Stumpd, but it was well after my time in there. We had a tent camp on that spot. Got some photos somewhere, including one of a De Havilland Dominie dropping supplies to that camp. We had fly camps in the heads of all the Clarence sidecreeks from the Jam right up to the Palmer.


Where was your Jam tent camp Bon?
