See if you can get a group together and car pool down. Splitting the Ferry 3 ways or so would nake things pretty cheap!

Accomadation

Hi guys,

I've been busy with work and other hobbies. I'm having a break from the Flying until NZ trip. Plus there's no wind here.

I have room in the house still. I think 7 is the limit for this house on the contract, but 5 will sleep comfortable. But I don't mind if you have a sleeping bag we should be able to make room. I'd like to ask the other guys if they don't mind.

This is the house I got.: http://www.holidayhouses.co.nz/properties/23470.asp

Cheers Asto

Done. You just need Adobe pro.

I might be a late addition but its hard to keep that time clear from work/family committments. I'm hoping to come the same time as Josh etc.

I am sure I will be able to find someone who will lend you a bike locally. If all else fails, there are heaps of places that hire.

Nice pad Asto, couldn't you get something closer to Tekapo?

I hope they have shuttles to the top of the hill for mountain biking, for my unfit self.

Lol, there will be more NE winds that time of year, so will be better being in the city. Closer to Wainui and Cass.

Yes there is a shuttle service. Called Alex's Airport Pick Up and Cycle Drop Off

Too good, love your enthusiasm Alex!

So December is not Tekapo season? Sorry for the one track mind but that video you posted was incredible!
