Next stop is on the beach for a party with lots of rum. One seems already to be prepared.


Thanks for showing us the fine gravel roads of NZ.

That was rather "Pirates out of breath" after those 253 steps...

A true "Salt & Pepper"-day !!!

An incredible light + shadows spectacle through the day...then run for cover when that front of black monsters starts unloading.

Check the map below for a roughly-clockwise run, up the hills of Ridge Rd. first, then tapping into the Gentle Annie towards the East....before running from the thunderstorms back towards Taihape and sneaking south, tucking behind and underneath the blackbellies, looping back to town the long way around.

A few tries at something... a couple of bomb outs and hasty retreats...and while we got a little wet, the cameras kept smoking at what nature dished out


And NO SKIMPING on THAT score!! LIGHTS ON AT RIDGE ROAD....Enjoy the show!

A wall of rain is chasing us off the ridges and east, across the SH1 highway onto the Gentle Annie road...







Prickly spines...






Yeah, right abouts there...
