About the SthCoast Web Site
SthCoast is developed and managed by chris morris (email). The text of the Siberian trip diary was mostly contributed by Mark Rogers who spent many hours huddling in sheltered locations scribbling in his book when he could otherwise have been gainfully employed drinking vodka.
The initiative for the site comes from a trip to Siberia and the Russian Far East that Mark and I did in 1999. The site was established to avoid having to bore ourselves, and others, by describing what happened over and over again - it's better than a chain letter. Since then I've put some more stuff on it including an Afghan Diary I put togther while in Afghanistan and a trip thru india, bangladesh and other parts of asia
The objectives of the site include:
|publishing our siberian trip diary|
|assisting potential visitors to Russia to realise that potential|
|providing links to sites that we find of interest in Russia|
|providing links to sites in NZ that I think may be of interest to people who visit this site|
|presenting a pictorial diary of Afghanistan|
|providing information to people on what I do and have done|
|generally assisting people if they want information or assistance in the fields I know|
For those of you who like paraphrasing the things I know or am interested in include canoeing, motorbikes, mountains, rivers, the sea, fishing, diving, Russia, Siberia, the Russian Far East, Afghanistan, computer consulting, web stuff, skiing and so on.
The general structure of the site at the home page level is:
|travel in Russia, Russia links and our trip - the birch forest photo|
|Afghan Diary, photos and some notes from Afghanistan - the picture of a city|
|NZ links - the fern|
|chris's nz adventure stuff - the canoe photo|
|info on the site - the Wellington south coast photo - this page|
The views expressed on this web site are my own and may be incomplete, or inaccurate - but that's life.
I don't mind getting feedback on the site so if you can provide some or if you have any links that you think should be included please email
