Evan I havent put any thoughts into this for a while as it was a trip that was a idea when we first started the forum up I would say the idea is dead at the moment, however me and Marg are always keen for a trip away and I know Clives7 would be intrested too, if your keen for something we can always plan a trip in Febuary ??.

OK.. I have asked for the 17 to 19 Feb off.... how about we make a 3 day trip over those dates? Something like over the lewis and down to Hokitika, down to Franz and maybe thru to haast, then home....

Evan we will keep those dates free as it sounds like a good plan but I would drive Christchurch to Franz Josph (381km 4hrs driving time) stay the night, Franz Josph to Wanaka (288kms 3hrs driving time) stay the night, Wanaka to Christchurch (easy 5hr drive)

Franz Josph has a great range of place to have a meal now and with the next leg to Wanaka being a bit shorter in drive time there is time to pop to a glacier for a look and also to Jackson Bay in Haast.

Cheers Stephen

If this xflow looks to be reliable we'd like to at least come to Chch so we can have the trip we missed out on when we bought the damn thing!


Paul once you know the xflow is reliable (are you driving it yet) we will make sure we come on any trip you decided to do down here in the South Island. I would certainly add quite a few kms on it locally first though, oh and join the AA Recovery iI did :lol: :D

Talked to Marg and they work for us so I will start a thread in the confimed trips section for discussion on this.
