Just come home from Wanaka, where I've been flying our Skyleader GP One demonstrator light sport aircraft.
Have had some fun exploring the local area. We tried landing on the Hawea River airstrip. It's an un-mown strip nestled in the midst of a pine plantation. An stretch of softer gravel part-way along the strip, and some interesting wind effects after take-off, made for an 'interesting' experience.
