    Good guys.

    I was a bit spooked when the pilot hopped in to fly wearing jandles. But he was ok.
    No better or worse than other operators.
    Chris at Kaweka is the gold standard.

    Chris flew us in for a hunt last Spring but the weather turned to shit and had Chis stuck for a few days. He arranged for Mark to pick us up as the weather from Taihape was better. Hill Country were real good, even had their loader driver drive us back over the Annie. Good blokes.

    Met Mark 2 roars ago. Seems solid bloke. He may have been the pilot when the duck flew into the windscreen of the E model near Otupae. Apparently it was like getting struck by thunder.
