So you're on the blunt side of 30, your life consists of seeing thousands of reports, countless work emails, weekly project and resourcing meetings, nappies, kids toys and the mess of a family household. What do you do?

Occasionally you may be as lucky as I am to get out and 3xplore, hunt, fish, ride and walk and with what little time you have, squeezing and stretching any extramural activities to the utmost minute before reality beckons.

Like me, you probably want to know exactly what, where and when you are going to be wishfully 3xploring before scrounging that leave pass or time-out well before you leave or even remotely think of leaving. You may also be lucky enough to have the world and your time at your whim?

I fit the above category to a tee. I crave adventure, I feed off new sights and some old. I am a self confessed adventure and outdoor junkie and often confused as a fat, hairy typical Kiwi male who has an overly active enthusiasm for pie's, bad food and beer but hell, we all do don't we?

My goal from this, is to hopefully share a few of my many experiences and shed some light on affordable products, great tracks, trails and rides. Some secret (and not so secret) fishing spots, dive sights and other hidden gems that aren't far off the beaten path.

So welcome aboard my somewhat stagnant wording, "amazing" photos and pathetic attempt to be "cool" and hopefully, I can relate to a few of you in some way in your adventures too.

Happy 3xploring,

Ben Haselden
