Subject: RE: BS: Visiting New Zealand Nov-April - Advice?
Once upon a time fetching your water from a creek would give you lovely clean H2O but not these days - too many freedom campers have used them for bathrooms and there are nasty diseases you can get if you don't boil the stuff first. You don't want a tummy bug while you're on the road.
And if you're caught leaving nasty rubbish in the bush you can get into trouble too.
Find a motor camp directory so you know where to find a safe camp with civilised facilities. There are lots of them.
