I am trying to plane a trip to NZ for 2 and half weeks the end of Aug. I have never been there and have no idea what and where is good. MT hutt looked pretty good on line? I am also wanting to spend one day on a heli? I am trying to do this trip cheap. If I could hook up with some people who like to split that would be great. Even better if they would let me crash on there couch. What is your schedule like? I would get to NZ Aug 23 and leave Sept 8. Let me know what you think.
