    Would be interested to find out if those same aerodynamic features are the same for windmills,as they really are only just big props,as in constant speed props,or constant speed unit.

    Another slip has come down in the gorge today.

    Not looking good for a reopen in the short or long term

    Cheers

    Looks like a decision has been made on the future for the gorge.

    The good ol hunting trainer the humble goat is bloody hard to find these days on public land (at least in this part of the country) and on private the owners like to let them breed untill prices are good and muster them in........there is a high chance my son will shoot his first deer before a goat which seems a bit backward to me.

    Certainly seems that way. Between hunters and cullers all the blocks around auckland seem to have slim pickings. 4 goats in half a year at dome valley.

    I'll probably shoot my first deer before my first goat. At least where I live in its cheaper to go to the kaimai's than it is for me to go to king country.

    The yanks wanted to bridge the gorge during WW2 as an exercise for the boys, believed the Govt turned it down. They did the conc road from Napier to Hastings I believe?

    Fark I love these urban legends.

    There are so many of them
    Wainuiomata Tunnel
    Rimutaka Rd Tunnel
    SH1 welly to Jafa land 4 lanes
    Mt Messenger
    Transmission Gully
    MT Victoria
    and of course Manawatu Gorge.

    Even if theyre not true they still get repeated as fact

    @Reindeer There was a big camp down Andersen road in Carterton, I managed Fletchers mill, the old Booth mill, there in the 80s. When they left they pushed all their gear into a hole and buried it, we had a few 44 gallon drums marked USA in the mill. There was a fuel dump at the end of Greytown where the road forks to Featherston and Martinborough, my old man and his brother in law nearly got caught pinching petrol from there one night, dad drove the Featherston straights with no headlight on to get away. My mum used to tell me of a rolled jeep at pee point on the Rimutakas, where she and dad stopped to assist, the GIs were OK and they helped dad get all of the petrol from the jeep into his Austin Seven before their retrieval gang arrived.
