About to go on a trip to try some gear out. A mate and I have been putting/making some equip. to carry which will allow us to fly camp and hunt or carry in our kayaks. The parameters are that it must be foolproof, waterproof and simple. Were going to use hammocks but decided to "ground hog" it on mats, with a fly cover.. I have heavily waterproofed my fly as it may be the saving of my comfort.!

Cooking is on a little stainless hobo type stove I made as I figured there is no future caryring gas bottles in and out,although the weight gain is marginal. The purpose of the trip is to provide a bit of an adventure challenge, so have encouraged a couple of wanna be hard men along as well!

Food. Taking some basics but hope to nail a goat or possum on the way in.Have to carry water as are going up high, so only two litres allowed.

Will let you know how it goes and hope to post pics

Awesome mate.. I'm going bush in the Kahurangi Park next month... Gonna spend a few weeks possum trapping the back blocks.. will go more regularly if it works out. I'd love to incorporate a 'kayak in/out' situation.
