Max said it best: "We tramp for accommodation." New Zealanders know how to camp. Rather than topping off a long days hike in a tent, they are rewarded with a cozy hut with a potbelly stove. There are hundreds of huts around Department of Conservation land and Max and I have been going to many of these huts for a good nights rest.
