  • Salisbury, Raymond (April 1997) [1995]. "The Great Escape" (PDF). Cape to Cape - 80 Day Traverse of the North Island. Word for Word Publishing. Retrieved March 2007. A red station-wagon full of elderly folk pulled up alongside me. Seeing I was obviously going tramping, a lady asked me 'Where was I going?' I replied 'for a walk down the road,'...  Check date values in: |access-date= (help)

At age 86 A.H. Reed didn't take the difficult Raukumara Range Forest Park route, but followed the east coast beaches south, visiting coastal communities, before heading west inland. A great Kiwi feat none-the-less.
