    Just did Google Maps, looks like a nice quiet place. Is your home by the golf course, or on the opposite side of the road?

    Nice quiet town with a steam train and Ford Model T Railcar.
    Good roads and very little traffic. The truck will be happy there. 5min to Timaru Raceway (Levels)
    End of October the Pub is re-opening.

    90% packed. 3 more night shifts then 11th we are on the road.
    Bit of a shame we are going to miss Get To The Point. This weekend is the big one, with stalls car shows etc Steam Train blah blah blah oh and most likely some free range eggs for sale in brown paper bags for a hideous price.

    Have nice roads here. Good for land speed records lol
    Settled in to my job driving milk tankers....transferred to factory 20min away. Getting to see a whole lot of the countryside.
    It is so different to up north. Low humidity here with mountain range to the west. Very little rain. Good for truck lol
