Susan and I spent 3 days in New Zealand on the fabled Routeburn Track, arguably one of the world's great treks. (She was antelope, I was ... whatever.) I'd say "I couldn't have made it without my trusty Leki pole," but as you'll see below (photo credit to Susan Sargent), it let me down mid-trek. We've reported it to the manufacturer.
Before blogging became all the rage, Tom was posting book reviews and Observations (essentially early blog posts) to this site. You can find the archives below.
