I bought a foam bed roll thing

Then I realised scooter has a battery, durr.  and I have a 12v pump and air mattress which takes up less room than foam thing

 

My sleeps are going to be lush

The bach accomodation option is now gone from the entry form as its reached max occupancy. 

For those still needing somewhere to stay in Hicks Bay there is the motel and lodge up on the hill

or the Te Aroroa holiday park just over the hill

Nah bol sorry Beav. Theres plenty of space there but the bach itself is only tiny and with 20 people already staying there its going to put a strain on the facilities 1 toilet/shower etc

For anyone who may/may not be panicking RE: Bach full. 

Don't worry too much! The Hicks Bay Motel & Lodge is about 3 fingers widths away from the rough location of the bach on google maps. As demonstrated by my epic drawing here:

If anyone books one of those bunk bed/room situations at Hicks Bay I'd be keen to jump in.

Also probably have a spare spot at the Beach Motel thing in Gizzy as Jordies not attending anymore.

Does anyone know of the beach side/grass area by the public toilet there is all g for tenting?

It's a bit of a different world out there. @HighLUX, your opinion? Would you find your stuff for sale at the local foursquare the next morning if you slept publicly? Or safe as?

Do the 'freedom camping hicks bay' google.

https://www.rankers.co.nz/experiences/3966-East_Cape_Camping_Site_Te_Araroa

$6.00 

Thats not a huge, but not a quick ride over the hill and half way to the lighthouse. Probably 30 minutes or so. Aka; not the goods after more than a couple of beers.
