Well I'm happy to hear that. I have a soft spot for the place after my 2nd cousin showed me how to ride his motor cycle on his farm there when I must have been, oh, at least 9 or 10. I was always a bit miffed a tractor rolled on him.


I remember a newspaper headline from years ago, after a tractor rolled on an AB forward (can't remember who it was)

"Tractor damaged when rolling on All Black forward".

Might have been Ken Gray.


Ken Gray farmed in Plimmerton I think. Marton is flat - how does a tractor roll on someone there? But I think Jazz Muller might have ended up there from memory.


Yeah, I met his brother a few years back and he told me the family had basically owned all the land on the eastern side of SH1 from Plimmerton to Pukerua Bay.


Yeah I spent lots of time in pkb. We used to mission onto their farm and camp in a valley getting pissed as teenagers.

Might be attending a wedding in Qtown next NZ summer and I'm actually excited as I'll do a mini tiki tour around the area if it goes ahead. :thumbup:

Watch out for that Hareaway. He's a red neck double brown drinking Harley riding psycho...





Seriously though, take him up and SG up on their offers.

Caley, don't book accommodation for Dunedin if you're staying nights, we have a self-contained flat above a separate garage here that you're welcome to. Peaceful coastal views and about 15 minutes from the city centre.

That is extremely kind of you, SilverGrin, and I may well take you up on the offer.

Naturally, payment could be in the form of getting pissed around Dunedin.

I'll have firmer dates once I've drafted up the itinerary- just waiting on the deadly Lonely Planet guide appearing so I can flesh out my skeleton plans!

SilverGrin does a great roast pork and his cheese scones aren't bad either.

I trust these weren't served up on the same plate . . Highly unorthodox combo. Unless, the scone was doubling up as a bread in an artisinal sandwich?

He's well-balanced and sensible. These were on two different occasions - we used to live a few doors away from each other.

Terribly fast drinker though.

If you've a day or two in Christchurch, I think you said you've a friend here? can I recommend this sea kayaking:

https://www.pohatu.co.nz/Sea+Kayaking.html

It's loverly drive over to Akaroa, you can do a bit of a circuit and the high road has some great veiws. And then for the sea kayaking it wasn't so much as the penguins I enjoying was getting up within a few meters of seals in the wild, watching them as they watched you...

Cheers, Flockwitt.

That has been added onto my Google map favourites. Both islands are now a sea of pin dropped locations.

If I was in Queenstown next summer for a wedding, what are the best options for accommodation? Stay out of town? Airbnb?
