Possibilities: Dutch Auction From our archives… January 1965 SANER TRAMPING?

Of late I have felt sorry for some members who tend to treat a tramping trip as something between an endurance test and a race to cover as much territory as possible in the time given. They have every right to this attitude and because of the wide scope of our mutual interest they certainly have a place in our activities.

But I wonder if they realise what they are missing.

Surely it is better to see a little deep and true than to see a lot shallow and fast, distorted by the very fleeting manner of seeing it. I am not condemning those stop-watch trampers. I merely feel a little sorry for them as they rush along their rather lonely route from A to B.

Editorial by Arthur P Bates 59 59 The Wanganui Tramper November 2016 - January 2017 The Trip Leader’s Responsibilities Select the tramp you are going to lead. If you don’t feel confident navigating the route, make sure well in advance there is someone who knows the way, to act as navigator. You are still the leader. Do a reconnaissance trip if necessary. Obtain permission well in advance if you are crossing private property.

Provide details of location and grading of tramp to the listed co-ordinators.

Be sure those in your party are capable of doing the trip.

Occasionally a newcomer will approach a trip leader directly. Prospective members are offered one or two try-out tramps. Ensure they are properly equipped, assess fitness levels beforehand, and obtain their contact details for the club’s new members contact.

Inform members of your party of any special needs, the starting time, whether trampers need anything extra. For overnight trips organise party gear.

Obtain a map of the area. We have a set of maps for most of our tramps.

Make out two lists of those going: one for you and one to be left on the club notice board. Email the destination, brief location and list of participants to the four PLB contacts. (Help with emailing this information is available from the club secretary.) russelld@clear.net.nz (Russell Donaldson) btwtcvaux@slingshot.co.nz (Bruce Thomas) tiger2@slingshot.co.nz (Earle Turner) dorothy@displayassociates.co.nz (Dorothy Symes) Get out the van(s) at least 15 minutes before departure. Check that the start mileage on the trip record corresponds to the odometer reading. If you are not going to drive the van yourself, organise a volunteer driver.

Collect and allocate party gear: first aid kit, locator beacon (take two if a large group). Distribute the gear fairly and sensibly.

Keep a check on the weather forecast and have a Plan B ready.

Make sure everyone knows where you are going, how you are going to get there, and anything of interest along the way. Maps can be helpful to do this. Appoint an experienced person as Tail End Charlie and ask someone to write a trip report.

Once in the field everybody is responsible to help the trip run smoothly and safely. However the leader has overall responsibility for the group. Make regular head counts, especially at places like windfalls, stream crossings (safety issues), farm gates, track junctions. Everyone must stop and wait at any track junction.

At times it may be appropriate to split the party, perhaps a slow and fast group. Some might like to return to the van early, some might like to do a side trip. Consider this carefully. Is there a possibility of going off-route?

How does the weather look? Is there a need for communication between the groups? Hand over the van keys if necessary. Appoint a leader for each group and insist they do not deviate from the agreed plan. Suggested minimum group number is four.

Keep everyone informed.

On return to the van do a final head count. Before driving home, work out the trip cost from the elapsed mileage and collect the money.

Vans MUST be refueled at the end of each trip. Drivers must ensure the correct fuel is used – that is, petrol or diesel.

Return the van to the compound, record the final odometer reading and complete the trip record. Return club gear (first aid, locator beacon). Report any vehicle issues to a member of the van committee. Bank the money.
