[TRAVEL] Rambles in New Zealand by John Carne Bidwill
John Carne Bidwill came out to Sydney in 1838 to represent his family's mercantile business. Finding that he had time on his hands he decided to make a journey to New Zealand with the intention of penetrating to the high mountains in the interior of the North Island. This is the story of that journey—that of the first white man to climb Mt. Tongariro and the attendant adventures associated with such. Intermixed is commentary on the botany of that part of New Zealand and the language of the Ma̅ori people. (Summary by Beeswaxcandle)
This project is looking for prooflisteners. A DPL (Dedicated Proof Listener) would be preferred, but until one is found, we need prooflistening for completed sections. They are marked in the Magic Window below as Ready for PL.

Project thread: viewtopic.php?f=12&t=93810
Please post in the project thread below if you can help with proof-listening.

New to prooflistening? Please read this FAQ.

Level of PL: Standard
Please consider these points during proof-listening and comment on them as appropriate:
  • Does the intro match the one specified in the first post of the project thread (below the Magic Window)?
  • Are there any long silences or pauses that ought to be edited out? If so, note the time.
  • Are there any stumbles or repeats that ought to be edited out? If so, note the words and the time.
  • Is there excessive background noise, a constant hiss or buzz that detracts from the reading?
  • Did you need to turn your volume up unusually high to listen to the recording? (Or did you find the recording too loud?)
  • Does the ending match the one specified in the first post of the project thread?
  • Are there 5 seconds of silence at the end of the file?
