    Hi Jeff

    Could you email me your packing list to please. Also if you have a list of the camp sites that you stayed in as well, that would be great.

    When you are given your own free time in the cities, did you have to meet back up at specific times to get back to the camp ground or can you just take as long as you want and make your own way back later?

    Hey ExplorerJeff! I was looking into doing the big chill the same time you did next year, though one of my friends isn’t happy with camping. What kind of camping is it? Like luxurious or beat around the bush kinda camping? Can you respond via email? thank you!

    Hey! I know you went three years ago, but I have a couple of questions. I’m from the US- you said like 85% of people are from NZ/Australia, so most people got along well? Did the people who didn’t get along with you all live in other countries? As an American, is it not a good idea to go on this trip? I’m booking for this coming summer (earlyish May to later in June) but haven’t yet.
