    Thanks, will book jetboating and horse trekking as well. Always useful to get pointers to companies that do a proper job... Anyone have a heli operator for sightseeing to recommend? Girlfriend really keen on that...

    ... and yes, it is only during the shoot she will be shopping w my card.

    Ice bar. Is she into walking places? There are some nice short walks around there that you can do in a couple of hours.


    Gold panning/historical mining place in the Kawarau Gorge on the way to Cromwell? I haven't been there in like 15 years though and it's probably $rape

    was going to say shag some foreign birds..........however if ya mrs is there that may not be a good idea.

    contact Anto of southern lakes hunting guides (easily found on the net). good fast guiding options from bunny busting to trout, to trophies to meat hunts in some of the most scenic places around qtown. might be an idea for an evening

    they cater for a wide range of audiences

    Thanks, but my man-whore days are over and this is a strictly no-hunting trip for me and parachutes is not an option.

    F''' no, if you don't want to do it once in a 'chute, why do it many times in a bungee-ee-ee-ee-ee-ee....
