Hmmm not sure as tubing pretty munted, was tempted to try and bring my wife tunnel house down but the winds were above 80kph at times so it would of ripped to shreds, inland it was reported winds were above 230kph and one weather station completely destroyed on a mountain.

Not bad just a little lower roof! LOL

If you get her back up use some tie downs to the ground from the top of the side wall.

Good luck my friend! If you fly me over I would love to help you fix it and than we could go for a ride and I could ride the 1K and give a review! LOL

Perhaps it's a flash video. iPads don't support flash video but you can get around it. Some options here: http://www.iskysoft.com/apple-ipad/w...s-on-ipad.html

Some photos next day.





The wind that done it was a strong north to NW wind as you can see as the next photo im looking south. The NW winds are warmer and come from direction of Aust blow over the southern alps and can hit us hard on east coast in Canterbury.


My anchor points held up but in hindsight it may of better to let it go and end up against a fence.


The tunnel house was a gift from my 80 year old dad to my wife and cost $1200.00 she may ring insurance and see if its covered and worth a claim.
