Mt John isn't the site we talking about, but would be worth checking out for the Earth And Sky research centre

Yep, plenty of guys in Auckland would be willing to help out with somewhere to stay and a selection of volcanic cones to DS right in the city. Nothing really suitable for anything big but you'd easily get a D60 or 80 going round.

Yep should do. I am calling the 2nd week the "Main" week.

Any time is good though. It's not like the sites and wind will be closed for business haha

Just remember the world ends on the 12th so keep that in mind when picking dates.

Well fits current plans perfectly.

Currently looking at car hire and accommodation and may end up with a campervan. Thinking if others are looking at cabins or caravan park style accommodation it would be good to know where and arrangments made to all stay centrally

Awesome! Would be great to see you guys here!

Was thinking if a group got together and did the Campervan thing, it would be cheap, mobile accommodation, and just drive to near the sites, and we can ferry people and planes up!
