I am visiting NZ (South Island only, unfortunately) for about a week's holiday, starting mid-March (only 10 more sleeps to go, as they say). I'm flying in and out of Queenstown.

Will bribe New Zealand skiers with beer in exchange for guiding me away from 50 ft. cliffs

I'd prefer to not fall off a 50 ft cliff in New Zealand while skiing backcountry this August. Besides hiring (the very expensive) guides, how do we find volunteers willing to help us make it back to civilization each day in exchange for beer? [more inside]

Unfortunately, I went through a messy divorce so my credit record here in Australia isn't very good. We're moving overseas to leave the rat race behind and ideally have a fresh start, but I'm worried my bad credit is going to follow me. [more inside]

Can we clear customs with homemade dehydrated food packets?

My lovely wife is planning a hiking trip in New Zealand. This will be her first hiking adventure out of North America. Recently she has started to dehydrate her own food for her multi-day hikes. No preservatives, more tasty, less expensive, and all that. Can she pack this in her luggage and expect to clear customs? Thanks in advance for all your help!

How to get another foreigner into the US?

Can I get my fiance in the US? I'm a Canadian grad student in the US on an F-1 visa. My fiance is a citizen of New Zealand. We're looking for a way to bring her here that will let her work (we're both far too poor to make things work with an F-2). Right now, her entering the Green Card lottery seems to be the best option, but is there anything we're not thinking of? [more inside]
