After hearing about the mighty Whangamomona for years, it was great to finally get the chance to go and have a look.  It's a bit of a trip from Vegas but well worth the effort, not only for the tracks and station drives that we did, but also the history of the area.
You can see why the returned servicemen walked away from their ballots after trying to make them work.  Ruggedly beautiful country but unforgiving.  Some of the tracks were hellish steep and that's not including the bum puckering drop offs often on both sides!

The Bridge to Somewhere

It's a hard life in the sunshine; sunday wasn't so rosy.

Alan testing his trailer to the limits.

Hopefully there're more photos to come (hint).

As usual, if you weren't there, you missed out.

Thanks to Colin, we had a working bee at Marcel's new sheds.  We lined walls, put up walls, put in windows and put up lights and drank some beer (mostly in that order).

 Then thanks to Alan Hoffman we had another working bee.  We cut holes in the side of the building and put in windows, lined walls, put up more lights and drank some beer (mostly in that order).

sorry about the upside down photos.

Maungaroa Station 2013

Another awesome trip into Maungaroa, Alan did a great job getting us back into a stunning place for four wheeling and just hanging out for the weekend.
Three trucks in on Friday afternoon with another three on saturday morning and a full long weekend of off roading, exploring, minor fixes, horse riding and peacocks.  Rain on Friday night was the worst of the weather with the rest of the weekend stunning (out of the wind!), warm and sunny.

If you weren't there, you missed out.
