New Zealand’s Te Araroa – A Speaking Tour

New Zealand’s Te Araroa – A Speaking Tour

Te Araroa is trending. 
While the Te Araroa Trust estimates there were 200 hikers on the trail last season when we were out there, those numbers are surely doubling this season. 

And because I’ve written about Te Araroa every which way—for Backpacker Magazine, the Appalachian Trials blog, Gregory’s blog, the Therm-a-rest blog, Superfeet’s blog and the Big Agnes blog—we decided it was time to start promoting it via presentation. 
In the months of December and January, we will travel to 8 REI stores across the country to share photos, tips for success, including information on obtaining a Visa, Te Araroa route information and gear suggestions. 
Oh, did we mention we will also be giving away FREE GEAR from companies like Gregory, Hi-Tec, SuperfeetSawyer and more!

    Oh oh oh! Does this mean you'll be in Ohio for a few days around December 3? I'm completely off that weekend if we want to get together!

    I don't see Greenville on that list. You guys are jerks

  3. Dee says:

    Sure. Just ignore the Pacific NW with its REI HEADQUARTERS in Seattle. We're cool with that. NOT.

    Congrats on the 9 years of marriage!

    Good luck with your new gig! If I open an REI in Danville will you speak at it?
