I hope and think I am not violating any forum terms with this post - think of it more as a newsworthy item that might just be of interest to someone. Saw this article in this afternoon's NZ Herald. The South Island's Mt. White station is an iconic piece of Kiwi geography and history. Jenny and I were privileged to be shown it by the owners a year ago - they beseeched us to lend them any ideas for turning it into the kind of tourism accommodation that we have in AK but, in the end, the family now has decided to put it on the block. It should be of no surprise to anyone that there are family dynamics that don't come up in this kind of newspaper article, but pretty much doomed the situation from the get-go. Here is the link for the article: Tenders close soon for Canterbury's Mt White station - Property - NZ Herald News If anyone is truly interested, we would be happy to share what we know. It is a staggering piece of land.
