    The Army loves this shit. They'll be all over it with their new temporary bridge shit.

    I can't even get close to Franz at the moment. Road is closed between here and there and I don't know what for yet

    Apparently the main road is closed from near Hoki all the way to Makarora for a variety of slips and surface flooding etc. Guess it was easier than just closing bits in the middle.

    Yeah I can't get to the fox glacier without a huge drive. Which is a bummer.

    Bugger. It really didn't start raining here where I am till 4 pm but the river is as high as I have seen it.
    It has only just eased off now.
    Supposed to be good for a while after tomorrow and I am supposed to be south hunting today.

    100 likes if I could.

    Already said to me on the phone tonite by a non gun owner.
    They have needed a new bridge over the Waiho for years. Maybe the buy back will have to be put on hold

    I would but how are you going to get there? It is between Hoki and Haast

    Hoping road will be open to Franz at least tomorrow.
    Rivers and creeks will bugger where we were going to go for a few days so have a plan B thankfully.

    Go down every February for a month. This year had to wait at Waiho bridge for 45, mins traffic stopped both ways , repairs to bridge. Last year was Cyclone Gita.
    I think this sort of event is becoming the new normal below Hoki to Haast.

    Anyone know anyone who’s in hunting at the moment?
    Be a little damp under foot and I hear taxcinder has issued deer with water wings
    It's all fun and games till Darthvader comes along
    I respect your beliefs but don't impose them on me.
