  • North Island Roadie, Wellington - Picton29th May 2021 overcast 11 degrees And so it ends We had an interesting night with boy racers doing their thing around midnight, it seems very close and ended as suddenly as it started.

  • North Island Roadie, WhanganuiSunday 23rd May 13degrees bitterly cold south easterly A quieter day today.

  • North Island Roadie, Patea to Whanganui22nd May 2021 18degrees, sneaky cold wind First morning coffee at Mana Beach-a freedom camping spot just outside the Patea Beach Camp.

  • North Island Roadie, PateaFriday 21st May overcast and cold about 16 degrees We had a restless night’s sleep and each time we woke wondered if the previous night had really happened-which the flat tyre confirmed unfortunately.

  • North Island Roadie, New Plymouth20th May Thursday changeable 18degrees I seem to have my days mixed up and seem to have missed a day along the way somehow-not surprising on holiday I suppose.

  • North Island Roadie, Otorohanga - Mokau18th May 16degrees stormy in all its facets Waking up in Otorohanga was awful weather-wind gusts that punched the van and rocked it, then squally horizontal showers so not a good start.

  • North Island Roadie, Coromandel - Miranda16.5.21 20 degrees I now see why…. Coromandel is a neat town, unpretentious, genuine and relaxed and friendly.

  • North Island Roadie, Waikite Valley / Hobbitton12.5.21 showery 19degrees Waikite Valley is just awesome.

  • North Island Roadie, Gisborne7.5.21 17 degrees cloudy/showery After a pretty disrupted night from the continuous trucks, we left to get Maddie a new lead and meet up with Sara.

  • North Island Roadie, Tolaga Bay6.5.21 sunny 20 degrees Tolaga Bay The campsite at Tatapouri is to die for-if not the incessant huge trucks that thunder past night and day.
