Why the site?

I registered simonmcauliffe.com on a whim. It seems a bit self-obsessed, but I noticed the domain name was free and figured I should take it before one of those other Simon McAuliffes stole it. Then I had this domain, and had to do something with it. So here’s a site.

It’s not really that I think you’ll actually want to read this crap. I have a terrible memory, and this helps me remember what I’ve done.

I go on quite a few trips. Usually more than 30 a year. I mostly forget what they all were. The hope is I will post them here so I can look back and see what I’ve done. But I just about always forget to post them too, so there’s only a small portion of them recorded here. Maybe I’ll get better at it.

The picture at the top of the page is me walking to Symes Hut on Mt Taranaki in a moment of clear weather. Kevin kindly took this great picture of me.

About Me

I’ll say something here one day.
