"Our friends across the Tasman call it bushwalking. Visitors from the Northern hemisphere refer to it as trekking or hiking. In New Zealand, heading off into the wilds with packs loaded for several days has long been referred to as tramping, a term which might seem mildly eccentric - until you visit the landscape. It is the rugged nature of the land which has shaped New Zealand's tramping culture and which also dictates the slow plodding movement sometimes necessary to move steadily through the backcountry on foot... Solo trips are inspirational for some, but friendship continues to be the cornerstone of the tramping experience." Rob Brown & Shaun Barnett...Classic Tramping in New Zealand,1999.
