Wanna stay at Hobbiton? The *actual* Hobbiton movie set? Can't Post

Make yourself available to get to NZ in March next year, go in the draw, and cross your fingers to win one of three two-night stays for up to four people (at $10 per night).

From the story: 'Winners will not only get to stay on site but have access to several locations featured in the movie franchises like the Hobbit Holes, The Millhouse and The Green Dragon Inn, and include experiences like a private tour of the movie set, and evening banquet in The Green Dragon Inn.'

Now, let me get this next bit right ... *ahem* ... OMG OMG OMG that would be amazing!!

Right, now that I've fed my inner fangirl - who's in? Smile

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

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís 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 beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

Looks like I was wrong about it being a contest. [In reply to] Can't Post

It's more a first-in-first-served thing, thought still for only $10 a night. What an absolute steal.

Is anyone going to try to get in on this?

Yes, I'm in. What've we got to lose? [In reply to] Can't Post

If it's going to be an ongoing thing, it's bound to cost more than $10 a night. Wink If it's only the one time, maybe we'll get lucky for a trip of a lifetime. This does sound like a grand opening gesture.

Anywho, I would drive up and see some parts of the country I haven't till now. Or, even better, maybe take the train.
I'll leave Bill the Pony in the stable.

Alas, I have no AirBNB history. [In reply to] Can't Post

Here's hoping TORnsibs sweep the spaces.

But... [In reply to] Can't Post

...how is one to get an AirBNB history, if that's required to stay at one? *scratches head in confusion*
