Trip: 48hr Hut Bagging Competition *POSTPONED*
Wed 3 Mar 2021 to Fri 5 Mar 2021
Organiser: Georgia Prince
POSTPONED UNTIL NEXT YEAR DUE TO QUESTIONABLE WEATHER, AVVY RISK AND HIGH RIVERS
RIGHTO who’s keen for a BIGGGG mish!!
Waaaayy back in 2002 someone ingeniously came up with the idea to have a hut bagging mission, a 48hr hut bagging mission with the goal of getting someone to every hut in Arthurs Pass in a weekend. We will infiltrate as many huts in Arthur's pass with CUTC stickers as we can! Plan is for everyone to get dropped somewhere on Friday night and all meet back in the same place 48 hours later. Fish and chips will have never tasted so good!
There will not be a trip leader with you so we need to know that there is at least one competent people in your group who has either lead a trip or done a bunch of off route travel/route finding/river crossings/night travel before. You must go in teams of 2 or 3. Ultimately you can choose how hard to make this for your team as you will choose your own route, so can decide whether you want to sleep like a normal person or punish yourself with nonstop walking in a river at night for hours for literally no reason. So it’s up to you. I know what I’d choose.
This would be a team effort. You'd still be in your own team but we'd all be working together to make sure at least one team gets to every hut. Hence this will still indeed be a mish. They tried in 2002 but missed 3 bivs. But I reckon we can do it.
This means that you don't need to be super hardcore to participate. We still need people to get to the closer huts. So come along and contribute to the cause!
It’s gonna be sick! Chur Dave and Greig for the banger of a idea! Surely this turns into an annual event.
This will, of course, still be weather dependent, so if the snow is low or the rivers are high then I'll sort something out.
Yeeoowww get pumped!
