Over Xmas we spend 3 nights on the Pohangina Valley just north of Palmerston North. http://www.doc.govt.nz/parks-and-recreation/places-to-go/manawatu-whanganui/places/pohangina-valley-area/ We camped at the Piripiri site next to the river. This is a basic site with room for 3 vans. (There is a toilet but no potable water, unless you boil the river water.) Saw some fish but couldn't keep them on the line. There are other larger camp sites in the valley which we didn't visit. Highly recommend this area, particularly if you like to fish.

Got caught out on our first trip, house batteries died, needed new ones on Waitangi weekend, a Saturday. Found one open in Industry road in Auckland they fitted two new 6 volt deep cycle Power Sonic 210 amp/hrs batteries for a good fee, only trouble was the cost of the batteries is way over the top. When in need you cannot Co plain but once I found out that they had charged me almost $200 per battery plus get over the suggested retail price my blood started to boil. I have rung and told them I want a refund, I will wait and see but if I do not get it there are serious steps that can and should be followed if this happens to you. Suggested retail is $568 plus get They charged me $740 plus get and that is per battery Pisces off...you bet

Mowhanau Beach 15kms up the coast from Whanganui has a stunning little campsite with all the amenties, clean and in a beautiful setting. We have only been there twice both in the winter and this little village was a slice of heaven both times. Really busy in summer with a family atmosphere and lots for kids to do we were told, we saw a fabulous adventureous kids playground down at the beach. Worth a a look and a mention.

Check us out if you're coming to the CamperCare Show at the Mystery Creek Events Centre this coming weekend (27 Feb - 1 Mar, 2015). We've set up a stall so that we can let more people know about RV Explorer and get their feedback for making it even better.

Thanks for giving me your card Chris. You have made a very interesting website. We travelled from Dunedin to Cape Reinga and I wish we had know about your site before we left. Well done and thanks again.

where are you guys now? Hope the weather's better, lovely and sunny up here. Don't know if you knew but Wendy's been asked to look after Mary again, M-A has a cold. Dropped her off at M'ville y'day, Bernie has gone North with Miriam to see Michael, not an emergency visit, Wendy took M out to lunch today at a new café at Wahoroa (sp) which she really enjoyed, Bernie back on Monday, M-A bringing W home on Monday as no car, cheers, Bruce

I just love the farmer's market in Waihe Beach? You can get fresh produced at very reasonable price. Remember ost of the farmer's market happening during Saturdays and sundays in different towns. Some of the places close the farmer markets during Winter season. Hopefully in spring time there are more of them, The good part of the markets are not only to bring the communities together, It is also to make a quiet village or township full of lives and activities to attract more traffic and bring more economic activities to your places.
