I said that "tramping" was a New Zealand term for hiking or bushwalking, but am reading an English novel set in the Pennines which mentions "tramps on the moors" in Chapter 13 - The Crow Trap (1999) by Ann Cleeves. First intended to be her first standalone novel, it introduced DI Vera Stanhope who looks like a bag lady But "Vera" went on to be a book and a TV series.
