Wow, wow the time arrived and so have we.
Wanted to let you know we have attempted to follow all your advice as best we can.
Arrived yesterday and stopped overnight in Papanui, with rain and more rain and having been awake for 33hours
by the time we checked in to our hotel and had some dinner nearby.
We managed to fit in some essential shopping (alcohol and basic food stuffs) but no caching.
Today though we managed to find 15 caches and enjoy the fabulous scenery from Papanui through to Reefton via Hanmer Springs. The weather much better today although still very cold for us. Very pleased when it got to 14degrees around 3pm
Thanks so much for all the help and hope to be travelling via Westport to Greymouth tomorrow then returning Tuesday or Wednesday via Arthurs Pass.
Thanks again and hope to see you all at the Mega.
Dea & David
