i wasn't wanting to post this because i remember talking to a few members about this already and i'm starting to feel like one of those guys who just talks about stuff but never actually does it.. anyway. i'm considering relocating to New Zealand next fall. Wellington to be exact around next winter(canada winter/ new zealand spring summer). basically i need to make some contacts and maybe even try to round up some job offers to help me get a work to residency visa. i'm not sure if all i need is an offer just so they know i can find a job or what but i have little doubt i will find one when i get there. if anyone knows any GC's in wellington that would be cool. i will even be able solve the debate as to whether or not they have better hot muds down under.

Thanks,
Ben.

If your going to do it, do it well your young, that way you wont have any regrets later in life.

And since were talking about the boys down under, Our canucks in uniform were honouring them today, I guess their not a bad bunch of fellows after all Carpentaper.

Ya what the hell! Where are all these guys?! C'mon slackers!!

Hey!? While we wait....who wants a sneak peek at the delko internal applicator video? :shifty: Shhh....
Don't tell anyone...
I'm just keeping it private for now, its not released to the public yet because I just released the venetian plaster one and I want it to get a little more attention before I upload another and fly right by it.

What do you guys think?

Actually its a bit dead here for new drywall work, Im mostly paintling etc, Builders are very quiet, The mine blowing up has caused a semi recession etc. Have you considered christchurch carp, Earthquake rebuild work, Decades of it to come, New city getting planned, House repairs, New homes, Thousands of tradesman needed, History in the making as we speak.

i have thought of christchurch but i have family in wellington. my sister and nephew and mom are in wellington. that ferry costs too much so i know i wouldn't see them enough. but it is an option if i can't find work in wellington. no offense to the south islanders but i think i would try moving north first. if i am going to move half way across the planet i would like it to at least be a little bit warmer than here. my understanding is the south islands climate is very similar to here.

Fair enough, Familys a good reason for wellington, Im not sure whats happening there, I sure you will find something.

As for the south island weather, Your a bit wrong on that, Yes central and lower can get a bit cold, The tops very warm, West is humid with steady temperature and no snow, North island weather storms have been nasty in the last few years, Wellington is called Windy Wellington, Im sure you can guess why, But it drys the mud well, so they say.

You would get work in Christchurch Carp but there's a huge accomodation shortage there, I'm an hour south and we are getting the same way, Like Caz said try Lloydnz, he might be able to point you in the right direction.
If you are ever down this way you could eat....um....I mean "meet" Julie the DWT mascot......with mashed spuds, baked kumara, peas, gravy :whistling2:
