New Zealand - Smiles to Frustration Review by Gary Kairn
My partner and myself were coming to Christchurch for the New Zealand Cup and had the opportunity to spend a few extra days. Rather than stay in Christchurch we decided to take the opportunity to explore some of the treasures of the South Island. We mapped out a travel plan that would take us through the lakes district to Wanaka, on to Queenstown and then back up the West Coast though Fox and Franz Josef Glaciers and on to Greymouth before coming back to Christchurch through Arthurs pass.

After some research we selected an Apollo 6 berth van – just to provide us with some additional room to move. The staff at the depot in Christchurch were friendly and helpful and took us through the workings of the van. They were very thorough and we headed off with a degree of confidence. The first day of travel went well enough although the vehicle was occasionally underpowered (possibly a sign of things to come!)…

Sadly on day two the van suffered the first of its mechanical issues when it went into limp mode whilst coming up one of the passes out of Queenstown. Not the place to happen with nowhere to pull over and traffic building up behind you. Eventually I found enough shoulder to park and was able to restart the vehicle. The problem was glow plug related based on the dash warning light. A quick restart and we were on our way…

We continued on and made it to the west coast town of Haase where we stopped for the evening. Very pleasant scenery and it was great to see some ocean.

Sunday morning dawned and again after some breakfast we were off. The excitement of getting to the Glacier country and on to Greymouth or Hokitiki was growing. Sadly, some 10k out of Fox Glacier the poor Apollo had enough with the glow plug and engine management lights both lighting up and again placing us into limp mode.. I tried the restart and applied all of my diesel knowledge to the vehicle but alas it was not going to go out of limp mode. We made a decision to continue into Fox Glacier rather than park the camper by the side of the road and hitch a ride – better for all if the van is in a town we thought so the slow trip began.

Upon arrival we went to the BP and the staff there were great – but sadly they confirmed our worst fears – that van was going nowhere! (Posted on 12/05/12)
