Deane Parker captures on video his favourite close-to-home 'sub 24O' trip. 100% beech forested singletrack, a decent dose of hike-a-bike and a seldom visited classic forest service 6 bunk hut right on the bush line.
Deane Parker, along with mates Muel and Luke, embark on a return trip on the Old Ghost Road in the face of a questionable weather forecast. They suffered a full-noise tempest on day one but were rewarded with two magic days to follow as the storm quickly moved through. Dress up, stoke the fire and check out their chilly video.
Deane Parker and his gang of usual suspects packraft the upper reaches of the Whanganui River to the Bridge to Nowhere, mountain bike the Matemateonga Track to the Whangamomona Pub, and hitch a ride (almost) back to their starting point on golf carts converted into railway jiggers.
Damian Stones and Deane Parker join three like-minded, and possibly equally bonkers, mates to bikepack and packraft their way from St Arnaud out to Kekerengu on the East Coast. The adventure has been beautifully captured in this award winning video.
