It's now official - our first Father & Daughter weekend is happening! We've only just advertised it and already we've got lots of interest - however, it's first in, first served!
Welcome to our Autumn Newsletter - trust everyone's had a great summer! Over here in the Coromandel, it seems summer just keeps on giving - I've just had a surf, and I'm still wearing boardshorts the water's so warm! But to be fair, it was a pretty wet, miserable start ... NIWA's predictions of an El Niño summer (hot, dry with drought conditions on the east coast) was so far off it wasn't even funny! We've had more grass (and rain!) than we know what to do with (although the cows are fat and happy), and one of the best summers of surf in years! So I'm not complaining ...
For those who aren't aware, most of our programmes contain a first-aid component/module, expertly delivered by Henry (aka Crafty) - our resident fixer-upperer. Part owner/director of Peak Safety, he delivers Pre-Hospital-Emergency-Care (PHEC) and Outdoor First-aid courses throughout the country. Here's a little taste of what you can expect ...
We've locked in another Wildman Father & Son Weekend! And this one promises to be the best yet!
With another Father & Son Wildman Weekend soon to start, I figured it'd be a good time to throw up a few photos from our course we ran earlier in the year ... It was in March (I think!) when 12 dads and their boys decended upon our secret location somewhere in the southern hemisphere. They were an awesome bunch - with an international flavour! Two of our dads (who were unknown to each other) flew over from Australia to participate and hang out with their eastern cuzzies. We showed them a great time - in fact, we all had an amazing time! Amazing weather, amazing people, amazing food, amazing location ... you get the drift! Anyway, enough waffle - I'll let the pictures do the talking ...
Ok, it should be pretty obvious by now, that we're not the world's best bloggers. Rather than coming in thick and fast, we sort of trickle them out ... one-by-one ... and only because of the overriding guilt that we haven't been more on-to-it! The reality is, we should be much better at it - in fact, we need to be! We've had a bunch of programmes already in 2014 - and nothing has been written about them (and they were fantastic - if I do say so myself!). We're always testing new outdoor gear - (because we're all gear freaks) - and haven't let anyone know what new peices of kit we've been playing with - and whether it's worthwhile, or a load of rubbish! Most of the team have been involved in plenty of adventures over the last 6 months - everything from 4wd trips over the Nevis Track, hunting red stags over the roar, helicoptering up Cecil Peak, panning for gold ... and much more! Yet, none of us have bothered sharing our stories - and hopefully inspiring others to do the same!
Just a quick post to let people know that our March 2014 Father & Son Wildman Weekend is now full!
Course dates for our next public Father & Son Weekend are now confirmed.
Less than a couple of months to go before our Father & Son Wildman Weekend kicks off!

So if you're keen to go, get in touch with us ASAP!
