Rheem Offsite Turns Six!

And just like that, it happened. Despite all the BS – Covid lockdowns, worldwide paper shortages, and rising production costs – Rheem Offsite is still going strong six years after it started; a proudly analog, free product in a digital world where everything costs more than it should.
We hope you’ve been enjoying the goodies we bring you each issue as we work hard to showcase the people, culture, destinations, and outdoor adventures that make Aotearoa a tradie’s paradise.
In this issue, we’ve got an uplifting story from Richie Laming – one of the South Island’s most gregarious guides – about his trip of a lifetime with a group of mates and one simple goal: connection. We also have a cameo appearance from legendary larrikin of the outdoors, Geoff Thomas; and the young bucks from the Weekend Mish take us behind the scenes of a rambunctious and rewarding fishing trip to the Far North.
For our ColorCote Tradie Profile, I interview Wanaka-based electrician Guy Hilliard using a quickfire Q+A to try to throw off his guard and get to the heart of what makes him tick.
We’ve also included something new in this issue: Mental Health Chat – aplace in the mag where we make space for the conversations that matter.
As always, get in touch if you have any stories of your own to share or to give us your feedback. We want to hear from you! Message us on Instagram (@offsite_magazine) or email me at jason@nzfishingnews.co.nz.
P.S. Keep an eye out for our 6th birthday giveaway on social media!
