So, Who Needs Wheels?

A brief guide to walking the Otago Central Rail Trail
By Heather Kinsey

Book Review by Liam Butler

$12 www.consultationnz.co.nz/so--who-needs-wheels-.html

For each book sold $2 will be donated to the Otago Central Rail Trust.

The 150 kilometre Otago Central Rail Trail is covered well in 22 pages by Heather Kinsey. It was around this time of year when Heather walked the Otago Central Rail Trail with her friend, aged 70 who described herself as "moderately fit". In seven days they walked the beautiful country from Clyde to Middlemarch.

This book provides a useful synopsis and tips about the track that can save you both time and effort...

"We made use of the facility to have our backpacks transported between accommodations. It costs $10 per day but made the walk more enjoyable."

Having cycled the trail in both directions meant that the author knew what she was in for when she started to walk the trail. This book is perfect for people wanting an enjoyable easy to read reference guide they can carry on route. It has the massive benefit that because it is only 22 pages long, the owner of the guide will not be able to bore their walking partner witless with a multitude of unnecessary facts.

"Did I enjoy it? Very much."
