    As you can see the 80 tonne crane looks tiny.
    That's One Amazing View You've got there . Those Towers are Amazing to stand under . It must be Incredible to be on top of them . I imagine You be able to see Alot of both the Islands from that high up.
    Great Photos .
    It's about time the MOT put a Decent Highway over the top and stopped playing "Micky Mouse" with the gorge road as that road will Never Stop Slipping , it's Amazing No Ones been killed in one of its land slides yet .

    The rust on the hatch cover and the cheap looking hinge and screws holding it together DON'T add up for a Piece of Machinery thats got to withstand Huge Winds Up the top of those Hills . I Remember seeing those Wind Mills on Transporters coming through Southern Hawke's Bay back in 2004 not a transport job I would have liked but To be up the top of one looking at the view Now That Would Be Amazing ..

    @Shootm my first shepherding job was with Bill Smith who owned the farm where most of the windmills are. Was there for a couple of years - circa 1966. The only good thing I recall about working there was the duck shooting By the gate to the woodshed there was a little hut which I shared from time to time with the drover Linc Campbell as he took mobs for the Hurley's through (do you remember him, if you were around in those days?).

    Patching is a broad use of the term....more like building the road again after letting it get so bad!
