Any NZ-sibbies wanna moot? :D Can't Post

I'll be in Wellington from March 18-23rd... so if anyone wants to meet for a dinner-moot, I'd love to see ya! :D

Unfortunately, I have no vehicle and won't be travelling outside Wellington, otherwise I'd be tickled to meet elsewhere.

WOOT! You're gonna be in Middle-earth... [In reply to] Can't Post

... how awesome is that! I'm so happy for you gramma Smile

The only person I know for sure who lives in Wellington is Jack from The Noldor Blog, who (and you probably already know this) is a sibbie too Cool He does LOTR tours down there, so if you do meet him and have a good time, don't forget to tell him I said "Hi!". Actually, that doesn't make sense does it? Me sending a virtual "Hi!" to him through you? I could send him a virtual one directly... CrazyTongue

Arghh! [In reply to] Can't Post

I would love to meet up with you again gramma, but I'd be flayed alive if I left during that time because of a couple of big events that we've been working towards for months. It's just really bad timing!

Let's catch up by phone - I'll message you.

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauron’s master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded b*****d with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

Have a Great Time! [In reply to] Can't Post

Enjoy!

I'm going to be in a "so near and yet so far" situation later this year - I'm going to be in Australia for nearly two weeks. I'd love to get over to New Zealand for a few days. May have to just wave if we fly over New Zealand on the way.

That's perfect! [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm looking into doing a Wellington LotR Tour while I'm there... so maybe I'll have a chance to speak with him! His blogs have given us some great moments and things to get geeked about! Thanks for reminding me, Earl!

It's just a hobbit, skip and a jump!! [In reply to] Can't Post

 I hope you get there!!! It'd be a shame to miss it after travelling so far. 'Course, I have no room to talk. Getting all the way there and missing Hobbiton. *sigh* Sometimes the fates say, "NO WAY!!!" ;)

I wish I were still there, Gramma... I'd moot with you!! Where are you staying? Luckily, Wellington is *incredibly* walkable, if that makes any sense. I quite literally lost 5 lbs when I was there, from all the walking I was doing (well, 3 days of tramping in Otaki Forks helped, too). I think you mentioned that you might do a LoTR tour while you're there...? I don't know if you've ever been on a Red Carpet Tour, but if you're only thinking of doing a day tour, this is my suggestion. Contact Vic & Raewyn James from Red Carpet Tours (the sweetest people on the face of the planet) & see if you can join them for the 2 days that they'll be in Wellington (I'm not sure if it matches up with your schedule, but if it does, you should do this). You'll get to go to Daniel's presentation, the Weta Cave, the "get off the road!" site, the Stansborough Cloak Factory... I may have forgotten a thing or two. Then another day while you're there, go to the Visitor iSite (can't remember the street now, but it's VERY easy to find... If you find the library with the polka-dots on the outside, you'll find the iSite. It's nearish to Cuba Street, which is a thing to see all on its own) & book a different tour. There are all kinds of things to choose from, LoTR & non-LoTR. Let me know if that helps (& if you have any room in your suitcase for me, LOL!)

We decided we could go to one place, but decided on Christchurch [In reply to] Can't Post

Love those mountains and even Mt. Sunday without Meducel would be way cool.

Hey Gramma!!! [In reply to] Can't Post

I just found out about this iPhone app; I don't know if you have an iPhone or iPod touch, but if you do, go to iTunes & search for "Welly Walks". It's a free app, & although I haven't looked at it fully yet, it looks cool & I downloaded it... for next time. Wink Here's a link to an article about it:

Let me know what you think! Smile

Back to Middle-earth [In reply to] Can't Post

It won't be for a while, but I'm hoping to be back in NZ for the premiere of The Hobbit, Part 1. I'll be part of a tour. It will be sort of a reunion tour as a number of us did M-e in JAN 04 & I led 3 hobbits around in '06. Fabulous tours.

Closer to home I'm chairing the 3rd Conference On Middle-earth.

All are invited, tho the main draw will be from the Northeast of the US.

Cheers!
