I meet Chris who came up with a great solution to fixing the freedom camping issues we face in New Zealand as more tourists arrive.
What is freedom camping? Freedom camping is the same as the U.S.A. “boondocking”, i.e. free to stay on public lands.
Chris came up with the idea of KiwiCamp and KiwiCash after campers started staying at his truck stop. It’s a great solution to our freedom camping problems and so many other uses too. He created a payment system that doesn’t charge tourist those extra banking fees. It’s a ‘pay for what you need’ campground that keeps costs down while supplying the facilities travellers want. It’s also all automated so you don’t need a receptionist and can keep an eye on things from your phone.
The first half of the video explains how the KiwiCamp and KiwiCash work, then we delve more into how this technology can be used to solve other issues in New Zealand. I really enjoyed chris’s positive and ‘can do’ attitude.
