Just to stop you giving hints, I'll say Milford sound.

Not Milford or Manapouri. This spot is both warmer and more populated than either of them.

Might be Marlborough sounds area, but the closest I've been to that area is Nelson so can't narrow it down if it is

Yes It is in Marlborough sounds. Just wanting the name of the bay I'm in. I'm looking in a southern to SSW direction.

Thank goodness for NZ Topo. I've only been to Picton by sea and we must have sailed past it.
I guessed somewhere off the Queen Charlotte track and Kumutoto Bay seemed to line up with the map.
I'll find a photo later.

Yes Greg, travelling between Whistler and Blackcomb mountains, doing some walking on both.
Would be the longest cable car ride I've ever been on. Over to you.

Thanks John :). I succumbed to temptation and saw that big fat question sitting there like a foaming pint of Tooheys Old on the bar counter on a hot day, just asking for it, with my better self saying "No no Greg, don't get sucked in, no one else has had a go and you know you don't have any pictures to put up if l are right". But there it is. I'll see if I can find something in the G family archives to put up.

I'm going to guess Gesege Airstrip (near Mendi), only because when I was there the lawnmowing crew were doing an equally thorough job of manicuring the grass.

Uh huh, interesting Ribuck, I take it you were not there for pleasure. But no I was not at Gesege Airstrip although in the few times I gave been in this strip I can say the quality of the grass clearing is variable but nothing beyond the capabilities of a Twin Otter. You need to move to the south east.

Yes, it was for pleasure. In 1987 for walks/canoeing in the Lake Kutubu area, and again around 1992 as the start of a 12 day bushwalk through to Tari.

Unfortunately, I don't know much about the area to the south-east.

OK, three days on and it looks like it might be time for another clue: this location is a flat grassed area oriented in a north /south direction and measures 2805' by 147' and has an elevation of 1430' AMSL, its IATA code is KKD and it is quite close to Kokoda Village.

Thanks Greg, would not have got it without the clues. I did think Kokoda initially but then dismissed it.

USA, where did we have a room with a view?

Might be some French influence around here, but it's a long way from Louisiana.

Are you somewhere in Colorado? I can't think of any French connection though.

North of Colorado Greg. French connection relates to the mountain range, commonly thought to be named by either French-Canadian or Iroquois members of an expedition.
