On the first Day we only want to drove to the first DOC Campsite. The Road was very bad and we had to stop on a small Creek which was not passable mit Juergen. During i'm smoking a Cigarette and finding a new Campsite a Kiwi overtake me and drives directly in this Creek and his Wheels began to spin. No way to go forward or backward. His Name was Brian and he want to go Hanggliding with his wife Sophia. We helped them to pull out the Car and they invited us to stay in their House in Masterton. After one Night on the next DOC Campsite and a Day of driving around (We visit only the Seal Colony near Lake Ferry) we went to Masterton and stayed one Night in Brian's and Sophia's House.
After that we went to Hastings to met the german Couple which i met on the Ferry and to escape the stormy weather in Masterton.
@Brian/Sophia: Thx for a Bed and a nice Chat. It's everytime good to met kindly People like you. Greetings to Tim.
