    Thread: Towing a Caravan

    My car is rated for 700kg un-breaked, surely a 1200kg caravan has a breaking system, but it’s an important thing to check for sure!

    Thread: Towing a Caravan

    A friend has exactly this car, that he uses to tow his boat or horse float for 4+ hour drives from Taupo to Coromandel and says its a pleasure to tow with. Plenty of power.

    Thank you all for the feedback and suggestions, settled on an Outback.

    Thread: Car Purchase advice needed

    Tempting but my family is a bit too rough on cars to spend that kind of money. Maybe when they’re out of house ��

    Thread: Car Purchase advice needed

    I haven't driven one, so can't say for sure but the Mitsubishi ASX I've had as a rental was disappointing. I looked at the PHEV Outlander, but for the driving I do day to day (50km return trip on the...

    Thread: Car Purchase advice needed

    I'm looking to replace my Golf with an SUV style car this year. I do a reasonable amount of long-distance driving including driving on metal roads. Hence the requirement for good ground clearance and...

    Thread: Who let people set up tours to White Island?

    So what Panda is saying that at least two disasters at White Island have been narrowly avoided purely by the time of day the eruptions happened and with both there was no prior warning. :eek:

    Thread: Who let people set up tours to White Island?

    Cave creek pops to mind. Not sure what you consider guided though.

    I'm all for risk management, again my point is you can't manage risk down to zero. And while I am a fan of learning from our...

    Thread: Who let people set up tours to White Island?

    I think you're correct here, although to be fair I think that a lot of our visitors just don't understand the circumstances they are getting themselves into. We've had lots of language students from...

    Thread: Who let people set up tours to White Island?

    God, you love arguing.

    My point was simply that there are plenty of active volcanos in NZ that are popular tourist locations, visiting them will always contain a level of risk. This current...

    Thread: Who let people set up tours to White Island?

    I think you're understating the danger those three volcanos represent. Sure they're not as active as White Island, but they are still active. The crater lake at Ruapehu has increased in toxicity in...

    Isn't Mt Ruapehu, another of our popular destinations an active volcano?

    It isn't, which is one of the contributing factors to our road toll. The idea that parents can just teach their kids to drive is crazy.

    If staff from the IRD can be bribed / coerced into giving out or selling private information, is any Goverment run database really secure?

    Read Nasty Kiwis’ post again. You’ll see that the police were already informed of the breach before COLFO heard about it. That they announced that it had been “ Immediately upon being made aware of...

    Thread: Objecting to Gun Confiscation

    Lol better stay out of it until you get a clue. No one's confiscating machineguns, that's one of the ironies, a semi-auto AR15 is subject to the confiscation while a full-auto M16 isn't.

    Thread: A thread to discuss how Jacinda will make NZ Choice again

    Shows what you know. Mana is a common NZ term used to describe someone's status or stature within an organisation. Most recent time I've seen it used was by a client's financial controller when...

    I also suspect that it is because they are the most disposable. If a crook manages to get hold of a real pistol, they are more likely to only take it out for that 'special occasion' where the extra...

    Thread: A thread to discuss how Jacinda will make NZ Choice again

    Much to my surprise every single person that I have spoken to on this and who is not a shooter (admittedly not a large sample size), has said this was a huge waste of money. Ironically, the only...

    Thread: A thread to discuss how Jacinda will make NZ Choice again

    Don't get me wrong, I feel that politics has been rewarding populists for a long time now and the voting public are, by and large getting the politicians that they deserve. I mean really, how has...

    It's coming from you ED. All I've said is that she has more support and resources behind her than most (any other) working mum in NZ. I've never said that the job was the same as running a clothing...

    Thread: A thread to discuss how Jacinda will make NZ Choice again

    No, I don't like her because I think she's a populist at the other end of the scale to Donald Trump (whom I detest). While he presents a false fašade of strength and decisiveness to run rough shod...
