    Toby to the mainland

    Right, so just had a thought i'd like to meet Toby, but i spend far to long in airports to be arsed going to the north island again, SO if i cant go to mountain, bring mountain to me, or something like that.......

    Hopefully there are a few other people in the south that would like to meet the manling in person, SO to the main point of the thought, i'll sortout the flights for toby to christchurch and the entry visa, plus the exit and return formalities involving airnz, BUT now need some others to help out a bit, ie pick up and look after him from the airport(due to work type, i dont want to commit to having to be there at a exact time etc) i think he needs to experiance some shooting in the great island, maybe some mid winter fishing, etc.....

    What say you good SI folk? Anyone whiling to help out to make it a bit (hopefully a kiwi understatement) of a experiance for toby?

    Not to sure on dates etc, and maybe @Toby can help out providing some ideas on when he's able? And indeed if you want to!!

    @Beaker
    What a champion.
    Bloody good on Ya Mate


    @Toby Don't forget to take some South Island dollars so you can buy your host a beer or three.
    The Hostess on the plane can change you money for you just press the buzzer and ask.

    Cheers

    I will help out someway. My wife might be able to pick Toby up if needed. All my hunting spots are at the top of big hills though. I'll load up some 9.3x62 rounds for him to have a go with.

    Well i did say christchurch as the imigrantion place, but maybe its nelson. All can be changed as havent brought the tickets yet!

    What about a around south island trip for him? Christchurch is a good landing zone, as its a international airport ( and easier for me to sort flights....) and easier to kick his arseout.... Apart from getting him to put his thumb out, could we organise some kind of parcel hand over around the best place in nz? Bearing in mind that he is from the north and may not know how to get from a to f.....

    Oh and as a side thought, if any of the north folk want to tag along, maybe thats a option as well - sort of a pay your own way support crew and meet the great (south) folk.

    And as far as a south island deer, i think there are a couple of people on here that could sort that, but one in the top of the north west springs to mind..... Oh and flounder..... And decent bbq........ And any enginering work...... Plus teach him the finer points of welding!
