We are two motorcyclists who have ridden overland from the UK and will be arriving in Christchurch NZ in May and our plan is after we pick our bikes up from the port to head to Queenstown for the winter ski season and we are after somewhere cheap to stay. We have already bought our ski passes on the NZ early birds scheme so we can't really change our plans and go to another resort. If accommodation came free with some form of job it would be great but as we do not have work permits it may be more difficult to organize hence the early arrival.
The opportunity to meet up with other motorcyclists would be great just to get some local information and have a
Hope to meet up soon

I'm pretty sure you're the Danny and Adam I met at Maartens house in Thailand. Just a thought as I was skimming through, if you're stuck, you could try couchsurfing.com. If not directly for accomodation, someone might be able to point you in the right direction with local knowledge etc.
You have to join and all that stuff, but if you want me to make enquiries for you I'd be happy to. I've already joined.
How's it going mate, the last I herd of you was your insurance company decided you were no longer covered as you needed to claim but were more than happy to take money from you for your policy.
So what was India like with a compound fracture ????? not so exotic I bet.
Thanks for the tip about couchsurfing iv just looked at their website and to be honest it looks to me you can only stay if you want to sit around talking about world politics, which isn't realy my thing, but if im wrong let me know and hope your legs ok now.
Yes, I've had a few interesting political chats. There's been a couple of fantastic people I've stayed with to. The guy in Inida pretty much saved my skin when I bost myself. I met him through the couch site. It is a fairly hippy way of travelling I guess, but it can be really good.
So how's NZ? Has the season started yet? Man I want my snowboard bad. I saw a 4x4 here (Darwin) the other day with the rego plate 'no snow'. I could have cried.
The leg is doing ok. Five months on and the swelling is almost gone, bit of a scab, and can almost run ten meters.
We are in Helpx too. It's a well run organisation, and almost everyone we have hosted has been a pleasure to have around. In fact one girl stayed for nearly 5 months and is now touring New Zealand on an A100 Suzuki that she helped me rebuild from parts and then learnt to ride.
"I just wanted to say thanks for doing this and sharing so much with the rest of us." Dave, USA
"Your website is a mecca of valuable information and the DVD series is informative, entertaining, and inspiring! The new look of the website is very impressive, updated and catchy. Thank you so very much!" Jennifer, Canada
"...Great site. Keep up the good work." Murray and Carmen, Australia
"We just finished a 7 month 22,000+ mile scouting trip from Alaska to the bottom of Chile and I can't tell you how many times we referred to your site for help. From how to adjust your valves, to where to stay in the back country of Peru. Horizons Unlimited was a key player in our success. Motorcycle enthusiasts from around the world are in debt to your services." Alaska Riders
