The idea of TrekWatch came to me when I wanted to join two friends of mine on the Kepler and simply couldn't get a space. I hung around Te Anau for a few days and went to the DOC office almost every hour, but there was nothing. Eventually one of my friends got injured so I took her place, but the idea of a service that will save all this trouble started to develop in my mind.
I created TrekWatch to help people be spontaneous; to give a chance to people that otherwise wouldn't try, to enjoy the Milford; and to save hours of precious time and money spent on phone calls and Internet access.
I opened this site with the intention to keep it free. I belive it should be free, but I'm not sure that it'll be possible. To help me keep it free, I ask your help. If you know anyone who might be interested to advertise on this site, please send him to me. If you can supply me with a free or a very cheap way to send international SMS messages, contact me ASAP.
Enjoy your hiking and enjoy New Zealand,
