    Ie "the wife has been diagnosed terminal cancer" results in a lot of supportive replys as it should!,where as "Im going fishing on a weekday in perfect weather" might get a few likes and maybe one reply calling you a cunt
    Ahhh that makes sense

    I was from Ashburton but we escaped 18 years ago

    The only thing I really miss is after living there so long hunting access was easy to get but not so much where we are now oh and the Salmon fishing in he Rangitata and Rakaia
    Never mind n another 20 or so years we will almost be locals here

    Thats not a thing here.....we have so much money moving here,Tasman is the fastest growing region in the country depending on who's version of stats you read.....When you say "lived here all my life" people look at you like you are a retard....and honestly I think I am for doing that.....everyone else seems to move here at the very least mortgage free and a few rentals to fund the whisky and boat.

    Ah that's my problem then missed that step

    Nelsons a great place, @veitnamcam you would go potty, no snapper, flat, no snapper, 50 minute drive to Lake Ellesmere for flounder, boring straight roads no snapper.
    House prices are not much less and the place is overrun now with Cow Cockies (tongue firmly in cheek there )

    Got a bit of work coming up. On Tuesday at 1330 we had a storm come thru like I have never experienced before. 3 jetties are completely gone like you can't even see where they were, 6 are complete rebuilds, and a dozen or more need major repairs. Macrocapas that are 4ft thick have been snapped like twigs. There was a substantial jetty beside that slipway. A lot of my clients are getting the bad news ..Name:  IMG_20180613_091232_360.jpg
