    I want MORE!

    Why do we all stay in the Northern hemisphere for winter, when we could go to Newzealand and have two summers?

    I have visited New Zealand a few times and found it to be a most beautiful place with the most friendly people. What is the name of the lake in the header shot, North or South Island ?

      Tim – Lake Rotoiti in the Nelson Lakes National Park is located (I think) on the north island. – Texx

    I know it’s not New Zealand but I sold a Chris 16′ Riviera to a fellow in Sydney back in the 80’s and no has seen it since. Since they can’t find it there, I wonder if it might have made it’s way to New Zealand ??
