Bit of a picture heavy one today, we set off for Lake Rotoroa, quite a pretty drive through the mountains and over a number of rivers.
We arrived there and the site around the lake is quite small so we went for a little explore.
Then as we were getting hounded by a swarm of sandflies I decided the only sensible alternative…. hit the local 4WD track in our house figuring it can’t be to bad ;-). It was interesting to say the least.
This is the fave of confidence….
Things then got a little hairier.
In the end the fairly worn road tyres were our downfall. But our house did pretty well 🙂 one slightly tense moment reversing back down a section involved breaking slightly too hard and the whole front of the van leaving the ground.
In the end we abandoned camping due to the sandflies and headed over to motueka to decide on the plans for tomorrow.
