When I signed up for classes here at Waikato, one in partiuclar caught my eye. Adventure Programming said that there was a cumpulsory camping trip. Well, I was in! The trip ended up being free and it was awesome. We did the normal team bonding activities but then we got to do abseiling (repelling), caving, and I climbed Mount Ngauruhoe and camped at the top. This mountain is 7,516 feet high and it was used as the "Mountain of Doom" in Lord of the Rings. Woopey! Anyways the hike took about 6 hours and we had to carry packs with food, tents, sleeping bags, and cookware. Rough! What an experience though!
