Hey, I'm Scotty from New Zealand, love travelling and meeting new people. Currently in Oz moving down Queensland for some 4WDing and surfing along this choice coast. Have been to a few continents now, am back on home country in Australia and New Zealand. Am enjoying taking people to explore New Zealand and Australia remote areas via 4WD, jet boat, motor cross bikes, surf missions, sea kayaking, hiking and rope work. Pretty keen on organising adventures for people. I have experience in the following outdoor pursuits and generally a pretty easy going character who likes to laugh a lot:
