Hi toyroma-my first posting with grownups so here goes. We have recently purchased a Ford Econovan - have two small dogs that we want to travel with so are especially interested in finding dog-friendly areas to visit and would welcome advice and shared experiences.

I am looking for a person, (preferably in a caravan club,) who would like a travelling companion, (driver,) to tour South Island, late March and share costs and have a good time. I am an older lady with a humourous side.

Chris, my family travelled the south island seven months. Our collie Aristar had gone to heavan just prior to our departure otherwise I wouldn't have been brave enough to take him as collies arn't little dogs
and their fur makes a lot of work. Its enough work now, with the fur from two new small furry friends, not dogs or cats though they have a cage each and that is good. Though we did live closely with Aristar
five years. There is a Pet magazine that I was given from Animates that has some information on pet friendly facilities. Though, generally,
with our animals if you keep them out of sight and under control,
exercising outside of camping grounds or places, that is ok in an
emergency. I tend to water, clean, tidy, trim, bath, in parks and
sometimes even save a bucket of boiling water to take with us to a
stream or river, once I did that when a sunny day was available.

There is a new Motorhome web forum where you may get a good level of interest from a discussion like this. The address is:

Hi, In answer to the question, 'Is anyone interested in forming a camping group etc', Yes, most definitely would be interested.
Would like to meet / chat with like minded people. Am looking for campervan at the moment, and want to travel around NZ, both islands, would be lovely to share the experiences. I am on my own and realise that a campervan is a small place to live, if sharing that space with another, and I guess the ideal situation is for everyone to have their own camper, yet travel around/meet up etc. together.
Thought please?
