On the road again taking ten days to get to Christchurch give or take a day depending on the weather and the hospitality I find on the way. It’s been 4 weeks since arriving home and the time at home has been well spent but the weather in the last week has meant that I have not managed to complete all the work in the garden I was hoping to. The roses have been pruned early this winter but the ground is a sodden mess so have not fertilised. It doesn’t help when I have two little helpers digging holes where ever I weed.
Donna has left me for another woman so are setting out on a boy’s road trip with Mac. We are taking a camper van bitch to keep house and cook. Rose will need some lessons on how to accomplish a high standard that I am used to but we have time.
Closed the house up and turned off all the gas and hot water. Locked the gate at midday and headed onto the road. First stop was going to be Huntly Golf Course just one and a half hours from home but the road conditions and the weather gave me the incentive to travel on to Taupo. Staying the night on private property “Taupo Furniture Removals”
Mac and Rose traveled well even though it was an extended trip. we stopped for a wee stop at the picnic area next to the Kinleith Mill. Settling if for the night watching the rugby. Not starting early tomorrow to let the ice on the Napier Taupo.
This a a brief post due to time traveled and darkness setting early made taking photos impossible. Shorter trip tomorrow back to Steve and Anne-Marie’s place. They will start charging camp ground fees this being the fourth visit this year.
