Woke up and packed up with the decision to go to Queenstown for a couple of days. Unplugged the main power from the van and to our surprise, we had no power internally to fridge etc. Hmmm, a bit of a problem.

Rang the camper company who us in touch with the repairs contractor. Given we were about to leave, and after the usual troubleshooting, we got the address of the local company in Queenstown and headed off.

The drive to QT was uneventful but was some really beautiful countryside, amazing in fact. Stopped of after a while and got a cuppa and a yummy savoury scone. Lynette is going to try and reproduce when she gets home.

Headed straight to the repairer who immediately found the problem. The battery terminal had sheared off, so replaced that and "good as gold" (real kiwi expression that one!).

Decided to do the Gondala up the mountain, and do the Luge whilst there. The ride was nice, but the Luge was awesome. (http://www.skyline.co.nz/queenstown/luge/)

From there it was getting late so went to the holiday park we had booked at, the Top 10 holiday park. Seems like a nice little place, and got a great location. Have booked here for two days.

After dinner the boys and I decided to go for a walk into the QT city area, which was only a short 5 minute walk away. Found a great Swedish icecream shop, which apart from being hugelt overpriced was YUM.

Headed back to camp and crashed.
