Adding new toys to Raetihi

Now onsite and working, runs off a gas bottle so we can make it available to anyone renting whether for a night or longer. It’s a late 90’s beast of a thing built into a frame which allows it to be free standing for now, but it’ll be built into a deck structure (and as such fenced as is required by the local Council bylaws) once we can get that arranged.

So far our daughter and friends have got it set up and running over a weekend, the water was not treated chemically so their comment was ‘it smelled very farty’ which I can assume is due to a level of sulphur in the local water – it comes from the streams on the side of Mt Ruapehu after all.

I haven’t been up as yet, the seasons off to a slowish start with snow only falling in this last week and enough of a base in place for an opening today; and I’m stuck in Wellington this weekend.
