Wanaka Heli Trip
The ride down was sketchy as it was so windy! The trail was wide, loose and rocky. It would normally have been a pretty chilled and quick ride down, but the gale-force gusts of wind made it pretty exciting as we were so exposed on the ridge line. Once we were down by the waters edge, a couple of whirl wind dust storms came over the ridge, followed by a stampede of about a thousand sheep!
A couple of Mission WOW friends came to meet us in a Land rover and boat with all our supplies. We set up camp, had a delicious hot mexican diner, wine, cake, whisky and laughs. It was one of the windiest night I’ve ever spent in a tent, I thought we’d end up in the lake!
It was awesome to share the adventure with some really cool ladies, including photographer Camilla Stoddart and World Cup racer Casey Brown… all so lovely, interesting, fun, and all about living a great outdoors lifestyle. Perryn used to work on salmon fishing boats in Alaska, which I think is amazing!
A big thank you to Mission WOW! I can’t wait for the next one!
