    My wife and I just got NZ Frenzy South as we prepare to move to Christchurch for a year. I’m sure that we will use it a lot. Will the 2nd edition be available in NZ? If so where?

    Hi Scott,
    Just purchased your NZ Frenzy South Island, looks amazing and just what we will need. I am actually a “kiwi” living in Sandy, Oregon….see you live here as well, cool! I am a big MTB, and outdoors person Post Canyon and Bend.
    Anyways, going home in Feb for 3 weeks, camping and all outdoors stuff, this book looks great and very helpful, can’t wait! Love to hear from you if you have any other suggestions and or ideas for us. Cheers!

    The New Zealand 3 wire bridge is tame in comparison to Scottish 3 wire bridges. I can email a photo if you would like. I do love your book as we didn’t have it when we toured the North Island but went to most of the same places as in the book. We have a copy for the South Island so we don’t miss any of the obscure little gems. Thanks.

    I bought Scott’s North Island book and traveled with it two years ago. We were so happy that we went to look for some of the obscure wonders he mentioned. We are still talking about the hidden natural hot spring swimming holes we nearly gave up looking for. Just got the South Island book, and can’t wait to explore it with this book over the New Years in a month. Thanks.

    Hi Scott is there a place to buy the pdf version still? does not seem to be (a)live….

    This book is incredibly difficult to follow. The map has no reference cities or highway numbers. On the north book, you’d have to parachute in at the north tip and follow the sites going south. In reality most people would go from Auckland north. The organization requires that I read the entries backwards. For anyone unfamiliar with NZ this book is a nightmare. The entries are wonderful, non-comercial, insider places, but creating an itinerary from them is a huge headache.

    I am a New Zealander – have travelled around the South Island a lot and thought I knew all the best corners. Can’t begin to praise this book enough. Amazed at the out-of-the-way places featured that I already knew about; even more excited on reading of worthwhile extensions to places we love – but didn’t know we could go further. My downloaded copy is definitely my Buy of the Year.

    Going to use both of your pdf’s on our iPad for our 28 day rental car adventure to the Land of the Long White Cloud, along with the National Geographic Adventure Map! We’ll be using mostly AirBNB’s to stay at, except for a week of timeshare in Wanaka :-). Thanks for the great pics on the blogs!
