Me and the wife passed thru Russell back in '91 on our first of 4 trips to NZ. Did the 90 mile beach tour.
Always meant to go back up there but never did. Spent most of our time at Hot Water Beach and in Wellington. Got a buddy in Wellington. Actually in Upper Hutt. Runs a couple american cars. 67 Chevelle and 56 Pontiac. Maybe we'll get back some day.
Once again Welcome!!
