#Cars don't tend to interest me. Air conditioning is a required aspect, I like leg room, and the ability to charge my phone. However, eons (well, in the past few years) ago I read a story in @smithjournal about the #Trekka, a #Skoda powered light utility; the only vehicle designed and manufactured in NZ to enter commercial production for an extended period. (I had to wiki all of that to refresh my memory). Stumbled across one in Naseby; was v cool! (I'll have to google car related hashtags now) #gettingoutofthematrace #hardlyburkin #nz #nofilter #lifenz

Thursday 12pm. Clay Cliffs of Omarama. Spectacular. Glorious. Surprising. Expansive. Deceptive. Stunning. Superlatives. Exceptional effort CCoO. #lifenz #nofilter #nz #sweepingvistas #hardlyburkin #gettingoutofthematrace #nzimagery
This is all you get Twizel. And mainly for the (personal) nostalgic value (partially ruined when a Shell became a Z became a Mobil) #lifenz #nz #nofilter #gettingoutofthematrace #hardlyburkin #willhiswifemakeusasandwich #shelltwizel
Thursday 10am. Kurow. Only gets a guernsey because of the orange pub #hardlyburkin #gettingoutofthematrace #nofilter #nz #lifenz
Wednesday 5pm. Macraes Flat. Isolated. Remote. Tradies (from the mine). Working. Interesting. Sterling job Macraes Flat. (Thx to the farmer who's land I inadvertently trespassed to take a photo of the church!) #hardlyburkin #gettingoutofthematrace #nofilter #nz #lifenz

Wednesday PM. On a recommendation, took the back road from Hyde (SH87) to Dunback (SH85). Some beautiful back country scenery ensued! #lifenz #nz #nofilter #gettingoutofthematrace #hardlyburkin
Wednesday 3pm. Naseby. Well maintained. Cute. Quiet. A solid effort Naseby. #lifenz #nz #nzfarewelltour #gettingoutofthematrace #hardlyburkin #nofilter

Many photos today, to come over the coming hours. To whet your appetites, here's a #selfie of me at a great big f-off random gold mine! #gettingoutofthematrace #hardlyburkin #nzfarewelltour
Spent Tuesday driving from Manipouri to to just north of Clyde. Bypassed Gore and took some back roads to get from SH6 to SH8. Despite many rolling hills, what got me were the old abandoned buildings dotted to small towns. Here are some from Kelso (which to longer exists) and Heriot #nzfarewelltour #hardlyburkin #gettingoutofthematrace #nz #lifenz

Flashback to Saturday. This was #Kinloch, on past #Glenorchy and the Dart River. #sweepingvistas #nzfarewelltour #hardlyburkin #gettingoutofthematrace #nofilter #nz #lifenz
More pics from the Sounds. Included are some dolphins jumping and classics of me not knowing what to do with my hands. Sadly undocumented were me kayaking then swimming (separate, unrelated incidents). Simply amazing (if the coldest I've ever felt!) #nzfarewelltour #nz #lifenz #gettingoutofthematrace #hardlyburkin #nofilter
Did an impromptu trip for an overnight cruise on Doubtful Sound. Simply spectacular, as I'm sure this picture from this morning attests. Real #zomg moments abound #nzfarewelltour #nz #lifenz #gettingoutofthematrace #hardlyburkin #nofilter
