    Mr and Mrs B S.I. Road Trip.....lotsa pitcha's

    A couple of years ago I took some long service leave and we hit the road, drove to Wellington, ditched the rental, flew to Christchurch and resumed our trip, down the east coast, stayed with a cuz in Bannockburn, over to the coast, and back to Christchurch via the Lewis.
    This country of our stuns me every time we do these trips...........hope you don't mind a few pitcha's......

    Te Anau....looking into Wapiti country

    Good stuff. Enjoy.
    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

    Lovely, tx for posting.

    Manapouri is a magic place.

    Your Rakaia pic is stunning. It should be in a calendar.

    That is terrible Pop Shot! Mind you I've seen very little of the offshore (North) island.
    There are only three types of people in this world. Those that can count, and those that can't!
