No Ego in this Eco

September 6th, 2020|Tags: , , |

What happens when a restless pharmacist meets a compassionate banker? Add to the mix an agribusiness supply-chain manager turned yoga instructor, and you have three ‘brothers’ who have a passion for making a difference to the health of New Zealanders, through the power of hemp. Their journey started back in 2009, with Christchurch-based pharmacist Brendon [...]

The Golden Days of Summer – A Great Ride

September 6th, 2020|Tags: , |

For us, summer down in the far south only lasted a fortnight. While others around the country were facing droughts with their lawns becoming dustbowls, at the bottom of the country we were still mowing our lush green lawns and dealing with flooding. The high-pressure weather systems that seemed to overstay their welcome up north [...]

Kinloch’s Lakeside Loop – A Great Ride

September 6th, 2020|Tags: , , , |

I am quite fond of Kinloch, a pretty village on the edge of Lake Taupō. In Gaelic the settlement’s name means ‘loch end’, and it has a familiar feel to that of Kingston, my lakeside hometown in the deep south. Both villages are at one end of a large lake, nestled in a small forest-lined [...]

As the founder of one of Australia’s most successful motorhome hire and tour companies, I’m often asked to share the secret of our success. Of course, there are many reasons, but one of the biggest is very simple: we know, because we go! Our research trips are key to our promise of a perfect travel [...]

Meeting Manukura

September 5th, 2020|Tags: , , |

You want the name of a place that’s as far in the middle of nowhere as you can get? In the rest of the world you say Timbuktu (in the lower reaches of the Sahara Desert); in New Zealand you say Eketāhuna – officially located in the lower reaches of the Tararua District, but usually [...]

  • Unlike regular ‘fish’, eels are quite happy out of water, providing they are kept moist

NZ long fin Eel

September 5th, 2020|Tags: , |

Matt Paku is feeding his eels. Strictly speaking, they are not ‘his’ – they belong to the nation – but they live in a cool, clear stream that runs through his property. Matt’s wife Marilyn runs the family fish and chip shop and Matt feeds the eels scraps and left-overs from the shop. As Matt [...]

Fitting Modern Comforts to a Vintage Caravan

September 5th, 2020|Tags: , , |

I was brought up in a caravanning family, going on my first caravan holiday at four months old in 1950. My parents owned Liteweight caravans so caravan holidays were regular every year. Over the decades, these caravans grew more sophisticated in both their storage solutions and their fitments, including conveniences such as hot and cold [...]

Road Trips Galore

September 5th, 2020|Tags: |

We are stuck at home again and working, with the vehicles all parked up, woof woof a bit sad. For a while there, we were away so much I didn’t know where I would be sleeping next. I got that winter haircut I talked about last issue. So nice it was too, and good to [...]

Cougar Captures the Attention.

September 5th, 2020|Tags: , , , , |

For us a trip to Tauranga usually involves dropping in to see various colleagues in the RV industry to catch up on new products and innovations. In early August (prior to Level 3) we rang Nick Blair at BOP RV in Katikati. Nick and his father John have, for nearly 10 years, specialised in the [...]

Where Gumboots are a Man’s Best Friend

July 5th, 2020|Tags: , , , |

I have been to some wondrous places in my years on this planet – safari in South Africa, the best hotel on the Grand Canal in Venice, camping in the Aussie outback dining on camel, croc’ and emu, a month last year tearing around Europe, Tangiers, Patagonia and most nooks and crannies of this great [...]
