The Counterglow New Zealand Trip Organisation Thread

As we have absolutely nothing organised for NZ Noisy, Nav and I thought we'd start a thread to work out what things we even need to organise.

We leave on 10th August flying via LA. jsorense wants us to give him a call whilst we are there if we can... unfortunately the way the LA stopover works we probably won't have time to meet him and if we did we'd have to brave US customs.

We arrive on the 12 August, LadyRachel has kindly offered to cook us a meal then. We'll need somewhere to stay.

At the moment we have the wedding to go to on August 25th at Lake Tekapo. I'd like to spend at least another day in that area because it looks great. Even though that means I'll be roped into helping make the wedding cake.

I'd also like to go to Milford Sound.

A trip to one of the vineyards sounds good too.

And I want to spend some evenings getting really, really drunk.

At some point we'll have to be in Christchurch again to pick up Venom - he needs to let us know his ETA.

That's about all I can think of at the moment.

Don't bother us with very uninteresting info on stuff we are no part of. Just leave already.

I'm going to NZ next year probably, so I might be getting back to you on traveltips.

Excellent, thanks.

They look good and unbelievably cheap!!! Doesn't say if those prices are NZ dollars or US.

It's a refueling stop in LA, I don't believe we'll even be able to get off the plane.

Debaser did the same trip last year, they take you off the plane whilst it's getting refuelled (safety thing?) and sit you in a room which you can't really get out of. Then you get back on the plane.

We need to find out from Shiny/LR about getting suited-up for the occasion. I don't fancy toting a suit out there for one day's use (although if we could dump them with Shiny while we're galivanting around the country, then that would be OK).

Milford Sound, wine tour, Lake Tapeko good. Also I've had Queenstown recommended, and I must see the volcanic bits on the North Island.

Hire car? Temperature ranges to cater for when considering clothing requirements?

I can't really be arsed taking a suit out there either but I think I'm getting a kilt. and a sword.

If you are willing to drive then a hire car would be fantastic. Need one that can carry the 4 of us comfortably...

Temperatures should be mild unless we head into the mountains. According to Rachel it shouldn't be any colder there than it is here in winter.

Volcanic bits also sounds good to me!

If we want to use those hostels, which sounds a great idea, then we need to join the NZ YHA, we can do that online here:

https://secure.digiweb.net.nz/yha/se...mb-int.asp?id=

Or from our local associations apparently... it's only $30 (£10) so I think I'll do that.

I'll buy a jumper out there.

I've got a guide to all the locations used in LotR. It'd be cool to see a couple of those (especially Hobbiton/The Shire)

Cost is £13

Yes, you can join when you're there. Christchurch is the NZ YHA headquarters....main office right there. You'll save 3pounds, enough for a couple of beers

Ranting type post.

I have no plans at all besides arriving there. Need to find someplace to stay. If nothing can be found, car trunk, gas station, or any floor will be acceptable. Not bringing a suit because I don't own one. As a matter of fact I don't own any nice clothes.

New Zealand was discovered by the dutch explorer Abel Tasman, who also discovered Tasmania (NO way!! Oh yes indeed), Tonga- and the Fiji-islands.
