I don't know how you got that into your head We should catch up for a soy chai latte at Pelorous sometime now that the proper road is open again

What are you going to do re accomodation Friday & Sunday nights? I have called the Oakura Motor Camp, & they won't take bookings for less than 2 nights over the labour weekend period.

I am wondering if I take the tent for Friday night, which would give some flexibility if there interest in an extended ride up or back to take in some other roads / tracks?
Tenting ??? Hmmm, may be warm enough

Box 'a' Bits, Padmei and Jatz - accommodation

Hi Guys - life's nothing if not dynamic - since last evening I've spoken with my daughter who'se coming home from Europe and there's now a plan to travel with her to Asia so my 'Cape to Cape' is now a maybe. Not saying I'm out yet - just unwise to commit to accommodation on my part given flux I outline - if i come and miss out on all accommodation I'll tent it - cheers Aslan

Okey dokey, doing the fuel working out thing, looking for some local knowledge please. Whakamaru Gasoline Alley opening hours?
Bennydale is Monday to Friday so no fuel there sorry folks. If you cant get 400ks on a tank some bikes will need to divert to Taumaranui. That will add a whopping 18.4 ks to your ride.
Also Te Karaka and Te Puia, save me a phone call, any one know their business hours? Fuel at Ruatoria (behind the four square) card access?
Mobil Te Araroa is a card pay so no issues with that one, only leaves Tirohanga and I am sorted.

Was talking to jatz the other day and we thought we might just "tent it". No bookings and just see what happens. Feasable?

Well I think thats what we decided.

Do the Nads want to do a group ferry booking, or are we travelling back at different times etc?

Come up Thurs night after work & stay here. Then we can all ride up together & maybe take in the 42nd Traverse & some more interesting roads on the way up.

I was thinking about making for Napier, but it depends on what Colin has in mind for us.
Did Michael put up his hand? He's been very quiet recently

I'm sure we can make the ride up interesting. The ride straight up SH1 & SH3 is a terrible bore.

I wondered how long you'd be able to resist. Resistance is futile...
