Hi Eileen
no - we'd never been camping in the UK - one of those things we always said we would do but never got round to it - bought all new here!

For new potential migrants

- do not make the assumption we made NZ does not equal california beaches...... it is 3 mnths of the yr in ok sunshine ( above 22C) in Auckland, the rest is a lot of rain. If you want reliable warm, sunny weather move to OZ. NZ is very changeable. We moved from the UK to NZ (without adequate search - I admit) to achieve a 'sunnier, drier, climate' for the majority of the year. We left NZ for OZ NZ is warmer than the UK, with more sunshine hours, BUT, it is FAR, FAR wetter and grey. Oz is what I thought NZ weather would be.

What type of cooker do you have? Ours is a large Campingaz stove (like this one) but you can't get the large Campingaz cylinders here, though the small cartridge cylinders are available. We bought a new regulator and hose (about $15 from Bunnings) and an NZ cylinder, and it all works perfectly.
