    Road trip

    Went down to visit one of the kids south of Balclutha during the week.So all is good,but I'm not getting up at quarter to four.
    The boy came in at nine for breakfast then was off to get the penicillians in.I said see you at Christmas and hit the road(I'm over cows)
    I decided to try and take tracks as far north as I could,so up the Clutha to Millers flat then up dry weather road to Lake Onslow,Canadas,lots of CanadasName:  020.JPG

    Then oops a vehical,4x with a quad on trailer,dogs with tracking collars and the owner in a blaze camo top,after a bit of a yarn I said "spose there's a locked gate down that way" "yeah you'll need a key to get through" "how far down?" "couple or three ks" "cheers mate,I'll go down for a look" "when you get to the yards drop over the side and have a look at the old stone hut"
    The gate at the yards wasn't locked,I thought I'll go and check the locked one and have a look at the hut on the way back.
    The track got wider, fences on both sides, sheep,stock and two gates chained together with same chain and lock,buuut, yeap outer here down past the homestead and onto the road,a cloud of dust to Patearoa then stopped at Ranfurly for fuel and coffee.
    Off to Naseby and Danseys Pass,halfway up I stopped to take a photoName:  027.JPG

    Stayed at Fairly for the night.
    Next morning was a long haul on the seal and I got thinking,the Rainbow road would get me home,I hauled into Hanmer Springs,people everywhere,half of Cristchurch and other Forieners must have been there.Anyway I was informed that oh,no that road is only open a few times a year,now I know that road has real locked gates so headed for the Lewis,had a brew in the riverbed below Maruia springsName:  038.JPG

    Brilliant trip Madjon
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms
