Well, sort of! Myself, my wife and our almost one year old daughter are moving out of the city, realizing an often talked about dream. Meina's (our daughter's) first birthday is gonna be one to remember!

Great idea :)

We escaped from the ratrace of Auckland up into the Far North almost 8 years ago, and have never regretted it for a moment [8D]

Where the heck is Te Kohunga by the way? You have entered it as your location, but that's a new one on me!

Welcome to the site!

Te Kohanga is a little community about half an south of Pukekohe, on the way to Port Waikato.

I looked a property out there when I was land-hunting, it's quite lovely.

You should be ashamed of yourself from wanting to be away from this great social experiment :-) ....
Hasn't the Honorable (or is that "Horrible") Mr Hyde make you aware that he was planning to take over NZ, then Australia, then the world, and make Bonny Prince Charlie the world leader? Shame on you for not making this experiment, which has not worked in 4000 years of human civilisation, work.

You should be, we are in Puni, North of the Waikato river and we are now part of the Waikato after the demise of Franklin council.

Congrats on getting out of Auckland, I did the same except I am here right now doing some work on my g/f's house in Henderson. Got woken up this morning by the smell of exhaust fumes coming in the bedroom window at 6am! Never noticed it when I was living nearby, yuck! You made the right move, especially for the wee one.

What's that I just stepped in?

Auckland, Peter, is that huge, traffic infested, hole that one drives through as quickly as possible on the way to somewhere else.
