We've set it up so you can choose from:
1. The cost of staying in a backcountry hut in New Zealand
2. The cost of staying in a serviced hut

We thought that was cool because our goal with every episode is to transport you from wherever you are into the outdoors.

Your support helps us to cover our costs and keep bringing you stories of explorers, adventure, and the great outdoors.

You can also support the show by leaving a five-star rating and/or a short review on iTunes.

Thanks heaps,

-- Andy & Jonny
