Ok its been a bit 3 weeks since my last post, i’ve been very slack… main problem was we moved out of the backpackers and moved into our new house but it didn’t have internet and its a bit of a way out of town so getting to use the internet was a prob. Anyway everything is sorted now and we have ADSL installed.

Here are a couple of pics so far, we prolly have more video footage but we’re still editing it…

First couple of pics coming to Wanaka:

Its a really nice house we’re living in, everything you need… good double garage come workshop, 46inch TV with DVD and skyTV. Washing machine, dryer, Dishwasher… and even a coffee maker! I’m living with Mikal (mate from Uni), Matt (mate from work), Jen and Mel. There is also a flat under our house where Tim and Jo live. Everyone is on a Rookie Course. These photos were taken by Jen!

The official day Treble cone was going to open was the end of June but due to lack of snow we couldn’t go up so we ended up going to Caldrona, another local resort that was getting snow, so while we waited for the snow Rookie started us on theory and days out:

A night out at in Queenstown with the Rookies (These photos were taken by Jen!):

The sky and landscape here is amazing! and has to be seen to be believed! heres just one sunset out the back of our house, but doesn’t really give it justice… “frodo you must throw the ring into the great fires of mount doom!” well you can see why they wanted to film it in New Zealand!
